The Order: 1886 price drops to $39.99, but will it help boost sales?

Sony has permanently lowered the price of Ready at Dawn’s PlayStation 4-exclusive action-adventure, The Order: 1886, to just $39.99.

The price cut represents an overall reduction of 33 percent off the usual asking price, although if you shop around you could probably find it even cheaper.

The Order: 1886 was one of the PS4’s most anticipated titles following its announcement at E3 2013, although the final product was met with mixed reviews to say the least. While praise was directed at the game’s stunning visuals, critics were quick to blast its short play time and formulaic gameplay.

Ready at Dawn has suggested that it wants to explore the series further, although a sequel has yet to be announced. Sadly, The Order: 1886 failed to set the charts alight, coming in at no.8 on February’s NPD chart, so it remains to be seen whether or not we’ll get a follow-up.
