Ready At Dawn Drops Some Fresh The Order: 1886 Details

One of the slickest new trailers shown off at E3 was the debut of Ready at Dawn's PS4 exclusive title, The Order: 1886 .

Now you can find all sorts of juicy new details over at the PlayStation Blog . Studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya talked about the new third-person shooter and described it as a linear, story-driven adventure with a general "filmic" presentation. It sounds quite immersive…

We were especially interested in certain info pertaining to the style and feel. Specifically, when asked what gamers can expect to see that qualifies as "new," Weerasuriya replied:

"The overall feel – that filmic experience… the one thing we brought to this is something people are accustomed too but usually can’t tell. When you watch a movie you don’t question what lens is being used. You don’t question why there is grain on the film or why there’s a certain lighting. Those are things we’ve been accustomed to seeing for 30 years. So when it’s missing we usually go 'Wait, something is wrong with this image.'

"With this game we replicated a lot of physical attributes. We have true lens distortion. We built physical lenses into our engine so we could get something where people will look it and not be totally disconnected. Games have a tendency sometimes to be too clean and crisp. We thrive in the dirt. We just love the fact that it feels dirty. It’s filmed in a very realistic way."

The game takes place in London 40 years after the Industrial Revolution. It doesn't feature an exact 1:1 map of the real city, but the team is attempting to "stay as true to possible to it." Remember when many gamers wanted to see Grand Theft Auto set in London? Well, this ain't GTA but it could still be very special. Looking forward to seeing some gameplay!
