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!

Here's hoping it's not Gears of War with a new setting.

Why would it be like Gears?

didn't a group of 4 heroes jump out of horse carriage with guns in the E3 trailer or something… guns ready to do some pop 'n fire style action!

Well, I guess. I think it'll be a long way from Gears, though. This is Ready at Dawn, after all…they did God of War, not Gears of War. 😉

Sounds good to me, I love when cinematography is used in games. I like film grain on horror games like Silent Hill Homecoming and also the great angles in Fatal Frame.

I think this looks like a great game. I hope it has co-op play for the story. Can I assume that they were shooting werewolves in the trailer?

I decided to pre-order. I have enough confidence in Ready at Dawn that it'll make a good early PS4 game. I like the setting they're going with.

really dont know what to expect with this.
the setting looks really interesting, and ready at dawn have to be one of the most underrated developers out there!
but i dunno just something with the launch trailer does not feel right.
not to mention the way they talk about it makes it sound like another mindless summer blockbuster film.
no thanks, we have MORE than enough michael bays in this industry!

Gears of War setting? Umm… it Victorian era by the look and a bit of steam punk. Its got my interest.

Keep Playing!
