    The Order 1886 info after closed doors presentation

    Ready At Dawn CEO Ru Weerasuriya addressed the games press in a behind closed doors presentation of the studio’s shooter The Order: 1886. The game was conceptualised in 2006 and was derived from short stories penned by Weerasuriya. It’s now a full-scale project with a 95-strong team and running on the bespoke RAD engine 4.0.

    The Order is a third-person shooter, and it’s billed as the first game in a franchise of titles that may also spill out into other forms of media. Set in an alternate post-industrial revolution London, the game’s steampunk, almost $#@!ensian veneer was researched by a snap-happy studio trip to London, in which Weerasuriya and his crew took over 38,000 photos of the city.

    Why? Well, the game’s core hook isn’t steampunk, or the arkane, or even those brilliant twirled moustaches we’ve seen so far. Those photos were actually research for both the game’s aesthetic design and the team’s material creation tools, as well as its bespoke ‘Abel’ physics engine. We were shown photos of zoomed-in cobblestones, of granite and gravel, each taken to make the world of The Order visually impressive, believable and most importantly – destructible.

    The game has dynamic destruction, and while we’re not talking about Battlefield 4 levels of military bombast, Ready At Dawn’s surface and environmental destruction is rather impressive. We saw Weerasuriya jump into a stone courtyard and pumped rounds from the protagonist’s Combogun – an assault rifle and shotgun hybrid – into a brass fixture set into a wall. The object crumpled and imploded with force after each round found its mark, deforming it in real-time.

    He then spawned in a bunch of teddy bears and went all Robocop on their stuffed asses, first blowing off a head, and then four limbs one at a time. This might sound like a gimmick, but we were all assured that dynamic destruction, texture warping and convincing object physics lie at the heart of The Order: 1886′s gameplay. When the crowd asked why, we were told it wasn’t yet time for
    that particular discussion.

    What I can tell you is that the game
    looks brilliant, as in next-gen brilliant, not just a small leap in fidelity. We were treated to a fly-over through an underground plaza lined with pubs, meandering NPCs and street lamps so convincing you could almost hear the bulbs hum. At the end of the street sat a mosaic, with each raised tile impacting the way those lights dances across its surface.
    This is what a large part of next-gen gaming is about; the dynamic factor, and The Order: 1886 already seems to have that in spades. It’s an intriguing project that both Sony and the developer are being coy about, but I’m intrigued to learn more, especially to see how on earth textures and destruction impact gameplay as Weerasuriya promised. I’m looking on with keen interest for some sort of clarity.

    I hope to see any leaks from this presentation

    Ok I wasn't interested in this game at all but it's definitely on the radar now. That sounded pretty awesome.

    Seems to me that next-gen is a lot more about empowering the player in the game world. The machine is just so much more capable.

    Action and consequence is a big part of what I'll now and in the future consider "next-gen". Sandbox territory where you wreck havoc on day and when you come back and play next time you'll go "oh, damn, I really ripped this town square to pieces yesterday".

    Wishlist: Jade Cocoon Reboot, Oni Reboot, the next JRPG, Wasteland 2 [coming soon!]
    SotC 2, Fallout 4, next Obsidian Fallout, Project Eternity, Uncharted 4, Divinity [NEW!]
    ...
    [South Park: Stick of Truth is pure gaming bliss!]

    I think Infamous:Second Son is meant to have something like that.

    [Edit] It does.

    inFamous: Second Son had a very good E3 2013, with Sony and Sucker Punch announcing that we’ll be able to play it in the first quarter of 2014 on PS4, while also being given a stunning gameplay video. In that video, you’ll have noticed quite a bit of destruction taking place, but when Delsin did his divebomb at 5:10, the dinosaur statue that was once standing crumbled into pieces.

    Talking to Polygon, Jaime Griesemer, Lead Designer on Second Son, explained that destruction in the game is permanent when it comes to “the memorable stuff, that’s the stuff that goes away.” To help ensure that there’s cover in every area though, you can expect some items to refresh once you destroy them.

    Elaborating on how they’re able to make destruction absolute, Griesemer mentioned that it’s all thanks to the PS4′s RAM:

    It was very difficult in a PlayStation 3 timeframe, where you don’t have enough RAM to store information about every object in the whole universe. The areas would just be refreshed when you leave and come back. But now we have a lot more to work with.

    Knowing that once you destroy something it will stay that way, are you going to preserve monuments in Second Son or destroy them all? Let us know in the comments below.

    Good information to hear about this game. I hope, from the footage we saw at E3, it pans out as it should. This info just makes me want to hear more about this game.

    I hope the gameply is closer to Diablo/Gauntlet/Van Helsing with no crosshairs than most TPS as it's what I felt in the first video, the time where we guessed the line of fire was so much more instictive and fun than the crosshairs in the center ...
