New “The Order: 1886” Screenshots are Impressively Dark
New screenshots of The Order: 1886 were leaked online which looked to be extracted from some cutscene of the game. Both of these new screenshots are showing the darkness in the environments of the game.
It seems we will be using the lights to explore the darker areas of the game. The lighting effects in both the screenshots look really stunning, the light is being reflected upon the characters and helping the players in the darkness.
The information regarding the game is very rare right now, we only know that The Order: 1886 is set in an alternate history where an old order of knights keep all of the world safe from half bred monsters, who are a combination of animal and man.
The majority of humans feared these half breeds and war broke out. Despite the humans outnumbering the half breeds, their animal strength gave them the upper hand in centuries of conflict.
The game is being developed by Ready at Dawn, the studio behind God of War Ghost of Sparta and God of War Origins on the PSP and PlayStation 3 respectively. The engine that is being used for making the game is called Ready at Dawn Engine 4.0 and the game will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment
The Order: 1886 was first announced in the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo event and it will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4. There is no confirmation of the official release date of the game but it will release in 2014.
