The Order 1886 Is Not “Downgraded” In Retail Build Footage; Dev Fed Up With False Rumors

The Order 1886 hype is currently at its peak as Ready at Dawn are promoting the game throughout the world. The game’s release is also just a week away and there has been plenty of footage leaked from the final retail build so far.

We have done a lot of comparisons between the retail build and the early build, some of which can be seen from here or from here. These comparisons show a much better looking game than what was shown before, but it still hasn’t stopped the claims of a “downgrade”.

A popular new thread has emerged on reddit showing an image that has been gaining popularity. It shows a comparison between the alpha build (2012) and the February 2013 build of the game. Now that the retail game is out in the wild, it is interesting to see how the same comparison holds in the retail version, and we can confirm that the developers have indeed improved the graphics in the final retail version.

Ready at Dawn’s CTO Andrea Pessino seems to have been fed up with these fake claims (short length, downgrade) and he recently tweeted about it, adding that he won’t reply to such tweets from now on.

It is rather unfortunate to see the game getting so much hate pre-release. Hopefully once it is actually released, people can move on and actually appreciate the effort done in making this game.

The Order 1886 will be officially released on February 20th, 2015 on the PlayStation 4.
