Ready At Dawn’s The Order: 1886 left many scratching their heads after its E3 reveal. The video looked great, but we had no idea what the game was like. Well, according to a new interview, it’s a linear third person action adventure.
“The Order is a third person action adventure with shooting mechanics,” says studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya. “It’s very much story-based – it’s a linear story-based game. We’re trying to tell a story. It’s what we call a filmic experience.”
It’s also one set in London. “It’s one of the greatest cities in the world” says Weerasuriya. “There’s a real diversity there. A lot of European cities have it but specifically London, as there are moments throughout history that have played out there.”
“It has a very interesting history, particularly at the end of the 19th century during the Industrial Revolution. Because this game is based in the real world, we wanted to feed off that and use some of the events, the people and the stuff that existed in that time to accentuate and bring our IP into a world that is believable.”
Weerasuriya says the studio is bringing everything they’ve learnt from the PSP God of War games, but will focus on the PS4 entirely. “We want to push it, we want to get everything out of it, and hopefully that’s exactly what we’re going to do – milk it for all it’s worth.”
