Ready at Dawn’s The Order 1886 Engine Targeted PC/PS4, Check It Out Running At 60 FPS On PC

The Order 1886 uses a custom in-house engine made by Ready at Dawn. This is actually a multiplatform engine that can be used to develop games for the PC and PS4 among other platforms.

In their SIGGRAPH 2015 presentation, Ready at Dawn explained their real-time lighting solution for The Order 1886. Since the game doesn’t allow any sort of camera control during cutscenes, Ready at Dawn used this to their advantage and added various dynamic light sources to add depth to the scene. The light sources were all added manually depending on each of the requirements of the specific scene.

You can see their engine in action on PC in the screenshots below. It is also the first look at The Order 1886 running on PC at 60 fps. Ready at Dawn lists the target platform as PC and PS4 here, which confirms their earlier statement that The Order 1886 wouldn’t have been possible on any other platform other than PS4, and obviously the PC.

In their technical presentation, Ready at Dawn explains how they implemented real-time lighting for The Order 1886 using their scripting editor, as seen in the screenshots above.

Just to highlight the basic building blocks of this system, here you can see our scripting editor and the game running on PC. You’ll notice there is a light set block listed for each shot in the sequence.  It is enabled for that duration, and then disabled.

The scripting editor provides live updates for the game, running in real-time on PC here. This same scene is then matched in Maya with each of the different light sources matched to the one seen in the scene. Maya, in turn, is connected to the game on both PC and PS4, allowing the developers “full real-time editing of lighting from Maya to the shot” in game.

Ready at Dawn also showed a comparison for The Order 1886 revealing the difference between Volumetric Lighting turned on and off. As seen below, they really add some depth to the overall tone of each scene. (Left = Volumetrics off, Right = Volumetrics on)

The Order 1886 was released on PS4 in February 2015. It started development in 2011 and was made using a custom in-house engine by Ready at Dawn.

  • Matt Kaya

    It can only run on pc at 60+fps. What a waste of game…

  • OC Guy

    With the amount of fog used in this game it could have been done on the N64.

  • XanderZane41

    Hhhmm.. if it can run on a PC, it can run on the XB1. lol!! In any case, not sure why people are still talking about The Order 1886. Besides the graphics, the game wasn’t anything special. Reminds me of DriveClub. Great visuals and lackluster everything else.

  • tommy walsh

    fps >graphics
    pc > ps4
    Big Rigs > the order

    • angh

      sorry, but according to steam only 10% PC > ps4. ps4 still> 90% PC.
      Not everyone have titan/fury.
      But yeah, sorry, thats only me enjoying games, instead of compensating my shortcomings with some silly fanboys allegations.

      • AndrewLB

        Liar. The Steam Hardware Survey shows over 50% of active accounts have a graphics card as powerful as the PS4 or faster. Just so you know, the GTX 750 ti is faster than a PS4. I just took this screenshot and if you count up the percentages of the cards as fast or faster than the 750 ti, you’re already over 25%. And there are two full pages of cards below this page.

        • Icaraeus

          A 750Ti is WEAKER than a PS4.

          • Guest

            But take a guess which can be overclocked.

          • Icaraeus

            *facepalm* The PS4 is substantially stronger than a 750Ti

          • Guest

            Nope digital foundry has proven otherwise.

        • Guest

          Could just take the top 20% since ps4 has sold just over 20 million while steam has 125 million users. Steam users with better PCs still out number both consoles combined.

      • Matt Kaya

        You are talking shit. No console in any department be better than pc. You have to be a salty idiot to even think otherwise.

        • angh

          better than WHAT pc? with 5 years old core duo and nvidia 8500? You have to be idiot to think that all PC used for gaming are i7+titanx sli+64GB ram.
          Only small percent of gamers’ PC’s are better hardwarewise than consoles. It’s raising, but still more than 70% steam users have PC with GPU loweror equaal to AMD 7870. And this is nothing to think, it is straight visible on steam stats. So even you can take a look.

          • Matt Kaya

            Bro dont talk if you dont know what you are talking about. You are looking like a complete moron. Even medium level rigs can run most games at 1080p60fps. Learn more before you talk smack.

  • slyfox

    Ummmm this is another horrible pos4 exclusive. Using that engine for more games is very very unwise. Man pos4 sucks.
    Gears in 1week brothers….be chainsawin you yall at 60fps.

    • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

      You sound like a butthurt salty little moron who will most likely get his ass kicked repeatedly at whatever he plays regardless of the frame rate.

      • OC Guy

        Don’t be a bitter fanboy because the PS4 “exclusives” up to this point have been lackluster at best. Maybe they will get better and maybe they won’t but what has been available so far hasn’t been spectacular and if they showed promise they are revealed to have five or six hours of single person game-play with very little to no re-play value driving down any real motivation to purchase when first released. Within a few weeks they become bargain bin purchases at best.

      • The PC Master Race

        You just proved it really does take one to know one :^)

    • Matt Kaya

      Runs most games at 900p25fps and shows off about 1 game that runs at 60fps at 900p low detail. Complete moron. Both consoles suck at that department. Stop fighting over it.

  • William Perdomo

    Relax noobs this is not coming to pc stop dreaming pc is a very important development tool in creating games. Sony owns the ip just like blooborne. In the other side at Microsoft camp most of their exclusives will eventually come to pc .

    • TheNumberSeven

      Wise move of MS to do so. Already 53 million Xbox enabled Windows 10 PCs and counting in less than 2 weeks. Let’s see Sony compete with that ecosystem. NEVER gonna happen.

      • William Perdomo

        Microsoft is not even catching up. No hating but that a horrible plan why? Well why would you want an Xbox one when exclusives are on pc people would definitely make a switch over to pc .

        • TheNumberSeven

          Why? It’s never been about just the consoles. With the integration of Xbox in Windows, Xbox as a brand becomes larger than anything Sony will ever be able to pull off. Enjoy SHILL!

          • William Perdomo

            That just dumb think outside the box Microsoft is about to commit suicide either people get a pc or ps4 . Microsoft is putting too many exclusives in one holiday that not good considering fallout4, phantom pain,battlefront, etc.

          • TheNumberSeven

            WRONG! Console players will always exist, just like PC gamers and the console will very likely still have its own exclusives, they will just share the same brand and titles where it works, but I guess you Sony shills like to twist everything to your own advantage.
            And now MS is putting out too many exclusives? LoOoL!

          • AndrewLB

            There will always be filthy peasants, and filthy peasants always game on consoles because they don’t know any better. They suffer from ignorance and a herd mentality, and have been brainwashed into looking at Sony as the mother and father figure in their lives which is why they get so upset if anything untoward is said about them.
            Now imagine if ISIS is able to hack Sony’s twitter account and told all their faithful mouth-breathing followers to go jump off the nearest building… could you imagine the global carnage? I shudder at the thought….

  • Lara Croft

    The Order IP is owned by Sony if I’m not mistaken. Future titles will most probably be on PS4 and PC (maybe X1).

    • xboxmaster

      the order will never be on pc or x1, or the order 2

      • tommy walsh

        Thank God!!!

      • The PC Master Race

        No right thinking PC Master Race gamer wants it.

        • sunny

          Goto Dsogaming and you’ll see alot of butthurt pc nerds commenting and mad this isn’t on PC.
          You don’t speak for all of them nerds.

          • The PC Master Race

            As one of the people on DSOG in their story on it. We’re all laughing at Sony shills backpedalling yet again and we don’t want this garbage game. We got Ryse at 60FPS and it was still a bad game. The Odor won’t be different

            Stay mad and making things up, pleb :^)

          • No Name

            I have just came from DSOG and no PC gamer is butt hurt or wants this trash on PC. The general sentiment was that this game was linear casual gaming trash when it was a PS4 exclusive and I have seen no one back peddle on that statement now that it runs 60fps , two to three times the resolution and without those hideous black bars chopping of 33% of the screen in an effort to claw back performance.

            So no one is mad it’s not on PC you are just trying to stir up some hype for your PS4 now that you have proof that your exclusives are only special because there is no PC version to make them look ordinary.

      • Lara Croft

        I meant future titles by Ready at Dawn.

    • TheNumberSeven

      At least on PC it would look and run better than 800p30fps. PS4 is WEAK!

      • Ucouldntbemorewrong

        your an idiot

        • TheNumberSeven

          And you’re a PAUPER!

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            Why cuz the system was 100 dollars cheaper than the XB1 or thousands cheaper than a PC, ya Ok ya got me there.

          • Guest

            Thousands lol

        • Reddz Foxx

          You forgot about the 2 hours of game play mixed with cuts cenes and quick time events. It should end up on steam for 99 cents. Console/ pc war aside it is just a weak game that shouldn’t have taken 2011-2015 to develop.

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            Ya the QT’s did not really bother me much, was short, with some pretty odd/awkward moments, thank god I rented it.

        • tommy walsh

          smooth 30fps?

          It’s like when sick people learn to live with the pain = console gamers.

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            As far as a 3rd person non MP goes I’d rather have a solid 30 FPS than a 60 FPS that’s not solid. People put to much on FPS and resolution, Solid game-play and a constant frame rate and good controls, and story are what matter. The Order did not have Solid Game play, story or IA. But frame rate and Graphics and controls were right on.

      • andy

        Yeah, 10/10 on PC right? But it would be a broken mess on PC wouldn’t it? Wait, Project Cars and The Witcher 3 are still unfinished games, never mind that is a non issue apparently.

        • ThatSpeakerOfTruth

          “broken mess on PC”

          And you choose Project Cars, a criticized but solid multi-platform game out of other possible racing games including PC’s no-bullshit DiRT Rally, and The Witcher 3, a lauded and functional multi-platform game outside some GPU-specific performance concerns.

          Yeah, I would say those are non-issues considering there isn’t much of a “broken mess” issue to begin with beyond what delusional circles you seem to have brought this purported evidence from. I’m surprised you didn’t embarrass yourself more by bringing up Batman: Arkham Knight for a mismanaged and botched port job, because obviously that’s the fault of the platform and inevitable to every PC game.

          Seeing this petty argument pop up repeatedly in response to petty PC fanaticism is, while amusing for the games you singled out, pathetic. There is more to your life than the reputation of your preferred gaming platform relative to other gaming platforms.

          • TheNumberSeven

            He’s just another Sony pauper crying for attention.

          • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

            Let me see if I can educate you on something, if you’ll pull your head out of your ass long enough that is. For the record the term “pauper” as it relates to a person gaming on PS4 makes no sense at all, you PC dolts constantly remind everyone how cheap it is to game on PC, supposedly you can build a more powerful system for less then a PS4, steam games are cheap remember, whereas PS4 cost more money, requires a paid monthly service in order to play online and the games are upwards of sixty dollars. So let me ask you genius how is it you figure the Sony guys are paupers when in fact its you PC guys that fit the description far better?

          • The PC Master Race

            Because you accept a poorer gaming experience and happily pay tithes like online multiplayer and cloud based backwards compatibility to lord sony while PC gamers are free to make their gaming experience as good as they want with 60FPS, Mods and more.

            We should be calling you Sony serfs.

        • The PC Master Race

          Unfinished? The Witcher 3 only had issues for a day due to a buggy driver. Project CARS is now working better than ever and even got a PC exclusive rain update.

          You are running out of excuses, Andy. What was it you said months ago? That this game simply couldn’t run on PC? And now it’s running at twice the framerate of the PS4?

          Must be embarrassing for you, having to defend that :^)

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            Not as embarrassing as trying to defend a $2300 machine against a $400 machine

          • The PC Master Race

            Closer to $600 and vastly outperforming the PS4 before it even came out, thanks :^)

          • Ucouldntbemorewrong

            Happy masturbation!!

          • AndrewLB

            I think he forgets that his PS4 doesn’t cost $400 in the real world. Last I checked, it cost $50/year for online gaming so if this generation lasts 6-8 years… his out of pocket on his PS4 is more like $700-$800.

            And for $800, you can build a PC that will absolutely annihilate his potato.

      • tommy walsh

        the game is trash though lol

        • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

          No but you’re trash that’s for sure.

          • The PC Master Race

            Still mad the PS4 has no games then :^)

      • ImOnaDrugCalledSheen

        Then go download porn and pirate movies on your PC loser and dont concern yourself with PS4’s games.

        • The PC Master Race

          What games? PS4 has no games :^)

      • angh

        as a one of mustard race you have awfully bad knowledge of what is 800p. Not that I’d expect otherwise.

    • William Perdomo

      Sony doesn’t share exclusives as much but Microsoft easily.

      • tommy walsh

        Your right.

        But still Street Fighter, No mans Sky, Hellblade, FF7, Shenmue 3 will be great at 60fps!!
        Sea of thieves, KI, GOW: Ultimate, Cup Head will also be nice on pc!

        Sony gamers are some of the biggest graphics whores.

        graphics > fps on ps4.

        • angh

          I have $2k rig and in some games I still can’t get 60fps without reducing graphic settings. And on top of that I really enjoy my ps4. I’m happy to play and enjpy any game I want on any platform I want, and yes, I will enjoy Uncharted 4 at whatever fps this game will be. Not like some people so closed on one choice.

          • AndrewLB

            Where’d you buy your “$2k rig”? Pre-built from Best Buy? For $2k you can build a gaming PC that will play any modern game at 1080p/60.

            As for Uncharted 4… enjoy your super linear, heavily scripted, interactive cutscene, with absolutely zero replay value. lol.

          • angh

            I mean i7, 2x290x, m2, ssd, some other drives in raid, 1Kw psu and other stuff. Case only cost me almost the price of ps4 (enthoo primo, great for WC), and 1440p screen. And yes, some of the games won’t be playable at 60 fps with full details.

            And yes, I will enjoy U4 very much, thank you;) it almost as scripted as most games on PC, just story is better;) Or you think that COD, or BF4 in SP are not scripted?:) (or that Uncharted have no multi? ) or any other adventure game similar to Uncharted? Actually, is there any adventure game released on PC only? Even tomb raider is multiplat, and I can’t recall anything PC exclusive on top of my head (in this genre).
            Btw, I will enjoy as well any good PC game! Isn’t that great, I can play nice story with Uncharted series and then play a few matches in Starcraft or Total War? Without bitching on framerate, mustard race and without problems with my ego I’d need to fix by bashing other people on internet – win:win;)

        • The PC Master Race

          As Palmer Luckey said. 60FPS is a standard. 30FPS is a joke.

    • Human@Play

      This like Ryse: Son of Rome, should see a PC release. This is a flawed but superior experience to the latter. The writing, visuals & solid V/O & audio are were the game shines. Its a shame that the game is rather light on variety and shallow in its gameplay mechanics. I have no doubt in my mind that the sequel [if one arises] will be an improvement in every possible way.
