The Order: 1886 still looks dead sexy in these new screenshots

2 min read


To be honest, I’ve still got no idea what kind of game The Order: 1886 is going to be. Will it be a stock-standard shooter according to my early experiences? A thrilling chapter in what will most likely be the first game in a new franchise? A great example of manly moustaches? Hell if I know. What I am certain of however, is that the game is a winner in the looks department. It’s the kind of game that I want, purely so that I can show my console hardware off to plebs. And these too hot for pre-release date screenshots aren’t helping.

 Currently in the hands of other people for review purposes, some folks have been live-streaming and uploading footage of the game, and earning themselves a naughty spot on the Sony list. Fortunately, I’m more off the radar than a Japanese naval fleet approaching pearl harbour, so I can upload a whole bunch of screens captured from these streams, that were collated by DualShockers.

They’re reasonably spoiler-free, but be wary nonetheless:

I truly am genuinely impressed with the visuals in the game, something that doesn’t happen often. The Order: 1886 may not have completely breached the uncanny valley effect yet, but it’s the damned closest we’ve seen a game come so far. If you haven’t seen the game in action, just know that the hype surrounding the visuals, are actually spot-on. The Order’s software really does allow for some truly amazing physics, models and design. And it’s a cinematic approach that does work.

The game is out later this month. And I’m still amazed that we haven’t seen any advertising along the lines of Pre-Order: 1886.
