The Order 1886: Never Before Seen Screenshots Reveal How The Game Looked In 2012

The Order 1886 is a PlayStation 4 exclusive by Ready at Dawn that was released on February 20, 2015. The game has received a lot of criticism for its cinematic gameplay but the one thing that is universally agreed is that it is one of the most gorgeous looking game on current generation consoles.

Ready at Dawn spent more than 4 years working on The Order 1886 and the game continued to evolve throughout its development. Now we have got out first glimpse at the The Order 1886 in development in 2012 as  shared by James Rosenkranz, Environment Artist at Ready at Dawn. He confirms that these are the screenshots from the game when the game was in development in 2012 and he decided to share them to show how the game evolved in development. You can check them out below.

 From the above screenshots, Galahad appears to be in a different uniform and some of the locations, as seen above, have been cut from the final version of the game. But despite this, it still looks impressive compared to other similar games in 2012. James Rosenkranz has shared more of these screenshots on his official website, check them below.

Interestingly, the game appears to be more of a third person shooter judging from the above screens. In one of these, we can see Galahad holding his Knife perhaps hinting to melee combat being included in the game at some point.
