A few days ago, Sony made an announcement that they would be streaming an upcoming game on Twitch and, as it turned out, that game was The Order 1886. In what ended up being only a short gameplay clip, we got to see a little more of the game in action which has so far seen very little revealed about it.
The Order 1886 is set in London and follows an order of Knights that work to protect the world from half breed monsters, using a liquid known as Black Water to lengthen their lives. Set, unsurprisingly, in 1886, the ancient war is still raging on but the Knights have found new success from the technologies of the industrial revolution. The game plays as a third person shooter and draws a lot of similarities to Gears of War, though the setting and equipment available to players is wildly different.
One thing that’s always been apparent since The Order 1886 was announced is that its an incredibly good looking game. The story scenes blend effortlessly straight into the combat with no visual differences between the two. While The Order certainly looks great and also does a brilliant job of portraying its grim, alternate London setting, we haven’t really seen enough of the gameplay yet to know how it plays. Sure the action looks like pretty standard fare for a third person shooter but will there be anything else on offer? Can players explore London at all or is it much more of an on the rails kind of shooter? Well take a look at the latest gameplay, which will answer none of those questions!
The Order 1886 undoubtedly has great graphics along with an interesting story and setting but we’re going to need much more in depth footage and information before we can tell if its something to be getting really excited for or not. There’s no current release date other than later this year and it will be available as a PS4 exclusive only.
