New Details On The Order: 1886: “Interactive Cinematics”, ‘Dark’ Themed, ‘Brutal’ Melee Combat

The Order: 1886 is going to receive new previews, videos and screenshots tomorrow and it appears we have got our hands on one of such preview earlier than the expected date.

This preview is unfortunately published in french, but thanks to one particular user, we have got a good idea of what the preview talks about regarding the game.

First of all, the resolution is confirmed to be 1080p(Note: It is 1920×800 with 2:40:1 aspect ratio) and 30 fps, although this is old news now. Ready at Dawn are also going to add a grain effect in game to create a unique atmosphere. The weapons in The Order: 1886 are all based on the actual weapons from the year 1886, but they are heavily modified. During cinematics, we are able to control the player and interact with the game. The game will be quite dark, and might evoke a feel of survival horror. We can also use the “Termite” rifle to pull enemies from behind cover.

Here are details on the hand to hand combat, translated by that user.

 Hand to hand fights are pretty similar visually to the ones in The Last of Us. and are really brutal. fight scenes are contextual and with multiple choices depending on your surrounding. You have to look around your character with the camera during bullet time and select what you want to do.
The hand to hand fights won’t look the same ever. it uses some kind of linking system colbined with player reactivity.

NeoGAF user Shinobi602 also dropped some new details, that were passed on to him regarding the game. According to him, The Order: 1886 combat was described to him as feeling like you’re “fighting for every inch” like in Killzone 2. He also talks about the game being like a regular TPS albeit with the exploration aspect of The Last of Us mixed with the freshness of destruction physics, cover system and unique weapons, which all sound quite promising.

The Order: 1886 has yet to receive an official release date. It is going to get two new videos, a whole bunch of screenshots and new previews from the press tomorrow.

What do you think of this new details regarding The Order: 1886? Let us know in the comments below.
