One of the common modern-day trends is multiple endings for games.
However, while players will be able to make various choices in Ready at Dawn's upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886 , there will be only one ending.
This is what Ready at Dawn's Marc Turndorf told GamingBolt : Multiple choices don't necessarily translate to multiple endings.
It’s a story driven linear experience. There are some branches here and there and different ways to do things, but we’re trying to tell one story with one compelling ending."
Turndorf added that they think the game will "blow players away with the seamless integration of filmic and gameplay in one awesome package." This sounds a lot like the amazing Uncharted franchise, all of which were fantastic cinematic experiences and linear adventures with only one possible ending. Contrary to popular belief, linear doesn't automatically equate to "inferior" when comparing to open-world games. It really doesn't.
Even so, there are many who would call The Order: 1886 generic, and the linearity isn't really helping its cause.
