You might have a few questions about The Order: 1886 , which is set to launch this month.
For instance, "how long is it?" And, "does it take full advantage of the powerful PlayStation 4?" Well, developer Ready at Dawn's Dana Jan tried to answer these questions in a recent interview (as cited by DualShockers ).
As for length, Jan wouldn't put an exact number on it, but he did say the game will be an "average length" for the third-person genre:
"The game length depends a bit on your ability and familiarity that you may have with this genre, but to give you an idea, it will not be far from the average offered by this type of game (third person shooter). As for hours of gameplay and gameplay will be very similar. The problem is that there is a misconception because the gameplay can be offered in different ways."
Linear third-person adventures, like Uncharted and Gears of War , typically go 10-15 hours, while slightly more open games (ala Tomb Raider ) will run you 20-30 or so. And yes, it depends on your proficiency, although most avid gamers won't have any problems. As for whether or not the game pushes PS4 to its limits, the answer is "no." Said Jan:
"I think we have not used the PS4 to it’s 100% limit, although it does not really matter what you do or what platform you’re working, you can always squeeze a little more and make everything flow a little faster. Whenever you go back to do some improvements the industry changes, and so we will continue working to get the best."
