PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 won't have multiplayer, will run at 1080p/30fps

Looks like you won't be able to play the PS4's upcoming third-person squad shooter in co-op.

by

PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 will be a single-player only game that runs at 1080p in 30fps, developer Ready at Dawn has confirmed.

"No multiplayer," said studio founder Andrea Pessino when asked on Twitter. "It is a single player, third person action adventure game."

Following reactions from fans--both positive and negative--Pessino added that it is "better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed."

"We are trying to make a SP experience you will enjoy," Pessino concluded.

The Order: 1886 was first unveiled at Sony's E3 2013 press conference via a flashy CG trailer, with the game set in an alternate history taking place after the industrial revolution. Many people assumed that the game would feature co-op play, due to the game's squad-based third-person gameplay.

Elsewhere, in an interview with Play3 (translation via Gaming Bolt), studio head Ru Weerasuriya said that the development team was aiming for 30fps and 1080p. “Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second. In a first person shooter that [surely] makes sense. Also fighting games are undoubtedly predestined for 60 frames."

"But for us, the cinematic experience is in the foreground [basically focus]--presented in full HD 1080p. In favor of spectacular effects and the highest resolution we restrict ourselves to a fluid 30 frames per second,” he said.

The Order: 1886 currently has no release date, though some people believe it will be released this fall after a previous Tweet from Pessino.

I'll just wait till someone beats the game and trades it in at Gamestop.  I'll buy it cheap and then trade it back.  Because that's the business model they're promoting.  Why else would anyone keep the game except to just have it in their library.  There's a reason why people play multiplayers years after purchasing the game.  Because there's an organic element to it.  No two multiplayers ever play out the same way like a single player game would.  Because the CHALLENGING aspect to multiplayers or co-ops is that you're playing with real people and not AI.  There's an unpredictability to it.  I think the people that hate multiplayers are the people that are really awful at it usually rage quits.  Why not challenge yourself?

I'm really surprised that this isn't a Co-Op game after seeing the reveal trailer. it looked like it was set to be a cracking character driven squad based game. This has changed this game from being a must buy to a possible. It will need to be extremely good to warrant buying without Co-Op for me. It's a shame, as it appears to be yet another game that has seemingly sacrificed Co-Op fun for set pieces, like the Call of Duty games. If developers made the effort, Co-Op can be achieved in cinematic narrative driven games. Gears of War, Halo, and a multitude of other heavily story driven Co-Op games have proved that already.

You could have the most powerful machine ever made in the history of powerful machines and depending on what you're trying to put on the screen it may still only run at 30 fps.  But 1886 should look far better than anything you're going to see on an Xbox One if this game is going to be at 30 fps.

Good.  I wasn't going to play it in multiplayer anyway.

But aren't ALLLL ps4 games supposed to be 1080p and 60fps mandatory? Because it is 50% more powerful than it's competition I hear, after all.

this is what happens when you read the comment section about game resolution and frame rates.

I don't have this game...  I want to see more.  I prefer 3rd person games, so this is high on my radar screen.  I need a good reason to buy a PS4 - is this it?.  There isn't anything interesting on PC now...  What's wrong with games these days?

Honestly, I'm fine with this.  I have never had an issue with 30fps and enjoyed the PS3 games I played so no doubt this is not an issue for me.  I'm glad they're focusing on single player, I hate when devs try to do both and it doesn't work out for either part.

AMD got over on Sony, and ran away with the cash, because the PS4 was old tech before it released and boy it's going to age very quickly, it won't be anything like last gen unless Sony decides to use the cloud to muster more frames somehow...snicker snicker...

HAHAHA, Now the sony peasants taste what the xbox 720p fags have been feeling, outdated console crap. If you wanna join real gamers and play1080p+ at 60 fps+ (since 2007) come to the master race.

@devilzzz2014 They kept it at 30fps for a more theatrical film look.  Film is 24fps.  But they said 24fps didn't play so well so they put it at 30fps.  Now quit being such a size queen.

@blast880 Sadly they already stated that it has no co-op or multiplayer of any kind. I'm both suprised by this and gutted.

The Order: 1886 Will Have 4x MSAA, Undecided between 1920×800 and 1920×1080 Pessino is definitely right there: 4x MSAA is definitely a very resource-intensive feature, as any PC gamer can easily testify.

@rickphoenixxx  it depends on the graphics of each title you baboon. obviously they could give us 60 fps with 1080p, but that would mean the game would have to be less good looking. i trust they did the right thing. 60fps isn't as important in every game.

@Kairysama Believe me, you will drop the game when you play it 10fps and 240p


It all matters, better visuals and framerate is a part of the experience, don't deny it.

@dpclark try Brothers: a tale of two sons. it is a nice little game, not next gen but I think it has a very nice concept :)

@dpclark  PS is good for 3rd person because Japanese developers don't know how to make 1st person perspective game.

@Armyboy5 @rickphoenixxx  Ah right. The XB1 could give us 60fps at 1080p and the games on that wouldn't be as good looking either. What's the difference?

Kairysama
Kairysama

@Zoza24 ofc it's important but trust me at the end of the day 720p and 1080p wont make a massive difference, and about the frame rates, as long as its a steady fps (30+ ofc) it's all good.

@Dantat @greenknight1490Not if they make a petition. Mouse clickers like to make petitions for everything. Good thing they have such awesome games. 'Cause it looks like they envy the console games. ;)

@Dantat @greenknight1490  The consoles don't have any real games. All your games are modless, look like crap, run like crap, and cost way more. So who is missing out now?

@Kairysama @lonesamurai1@uchihasilver@Zoza24 Graphics are important to me always have been and that's one reason why PS3 and PS4 exclusives mean squat to me the only exclusive I ever wanted on PC was Gear of War that is the only awesome exclusive to me nothing else compares as far as exclusives go.

Kairysama
Kairysama

@lonesamurai1 @Kairysama@uchihasilver@Zoza24 well everyone has different taste in games, for example me I hate minecraft and I don't get the game but it's a popular game which means it has it's audience. on the side note Everyone should play The Last of us :D


About graphics, for most old school gamers or should I say older generation of gamers graphics don't matter cuz we have seen the worst and the best over the course of all the changes in the gaming industry, for example I still play games like, Castlevania: symphony of the night or Soul Reaver and many other old games and I got to say I enjoy them more than games like Crysis 3 or some other games with mind blowing graphics. The point is if you can lose yourself in a game and forget about reality for a while it's all good no matter which platform or what resolution or frame rate.

@lonesamurai1 @Kairysama@uchihasilver@Zoza24 well everyone has different taste in games, for example me I hate minecraft and I don't get the game but it's a popular game which means it has it's audience but to be honest everyone should play The Last of us.

@Kairysama @lonesamurai1@uchihasilver@Zoza24 But the PS4 exclusives aren't the least bit interesting to me because I have no control over how the game is played on console and let Sony screw me over anyway they want don't think so and besides the graphics on those games suck.

@lonesamurai1 @uchihasilver@Zoza24 yes but to be honest with you games like The Last of Us, uncharted and many other exclusives wont ever come to PC so playing games at higher resolutions like 4K doesnt matter. At the end of the day it's all about games (this is coming from a PC gamer)

lonesamurai1

@uchihasilver @Kairysama@Zoza24 No 1080p is meant to be played on console, you know since that resolution has been around for nearly 8 years and consoles still can't do it properly. PCs are meant to be played at much much higher resolutions, so if he or I prefer 4K we can play at 4K because unlike consoles there are no limits or constraints.

How was I a prick ? I'm one of those PC gamers who actually cares about games and not about which console is better blah blah....

@Kairysama @Zoza24  crysis 3 at 4k yer right since most PC's can not do 4k let alone crysis 3 which runs at like 35 fps with SLI gtx titans or SLI gtx 780's so yer if you are playing at them resolutions then you're wasting your money 1080p is good enough for the time being oh and ive been a PC gamer for years and i get so pissed off with you PC Master Race idiots that make all PC gamers look like pricks

Kairysama
Kairysama

@Zoza24 I'm a PC gamer myself with a ps3/ps4 on the side for exclusives, oh and about Crysis 3, games like that are kind of like tech demos just to push the limits on your hardware there is no soul or enjoyment to them (ofc it's just my opinion) and trust me I'm not the only one who doesn't care about 720 or 1080p that much.

Zoza24
Zoza24

@Kairysama @Zoza24  1080p makes a big difference, 4k makes a big difference, only ''you'' think it doesn't matters.

For most of us PC gamers it does matters, and i do plan on buying a Ps4 later on, but hardware technology progress starts with PC, not consoles. 

Believe me, when i played Crysis 3 at 4k and ultra settings, it was difficult to go back to the old 30fps.

@EdAl2112 @Dantat@greenknight1490 What's to envy 30fps graphics on 1st party titles alone that's just laughable too think that a PC Gamer would be jealous of anything a console has to offer PC has so much on the horizon while Microsoft and Sony are still trying to think of ways too keep you guys entertained for the next 10 years, Playstation Now? Ha if that's the best they got then forget it.

@lonesamurai1  Of course GTA5 will be better on a PC - it was designed to run on eight year old consoles. Tell me though pal, could GTA5 run on an 8 year old PC? Will GTA8 (released in 5 years) run on the PC you have now? Nope.

"I simply have more fun playing the game the developers made"

Exactly!  I made a similar remark on GameSpot a few days ago  and got jumped on by PC jocks who like spending hours modding their games.  I said that I prefer to play a game as the studio made it and not some hacked version.  One even admitted they try to improve on the crappy job the professional studio failed to produce.

@Zironn1 @greenknight1490 Go ahead miss out on another amazing year for this year while consoles playing a game for 2 hours and then use as a coaster or take take to a locale game store and get $5 for the game they spent $60 on. Miss out on new emerging ways to enjoy your game while playing without framerate skips or slowdown, miss out on exclusives like Project Cars, Asseto Corsa, Star Citizen, Grand Theft Auto 5 played way better than on consoles. 3rd party games looking and playing much better on PCs, Go ahead and miss out on Oculus and 4K options, and who knows what else is going to be announced in the coming months, because last year PCs stole the limelight from consoles.

@greenknight1490 the content on pc is amazing, but being a pc gamer for the last 10 years I would pick up a game expecting to play online, sadly no one plays any multiplayer games on pc besides the big games. On the console there is always a community playing everything for a while. For instance I really enjoyed Bionic commando , there were 4 people playing on pc, over 300 on console, back when It came out.


This gen I'm starting to care less about mods and graphics and I'm craving  more people to play with.

@Longjohn4  Its as easy as clicking top mods list at skyrim nexus then click download, then using the modding program double click the mod and your done.

@greenknight1490 @Dantat  Though I hate feeding childish trolls I will state this - the fact that you have to mod a game in order to enjoy it, says a lot about the title itself.  Or does it?

greenknight1490
greenknight1490

@Dantat @greenknight1490  Lol every game is a pc exclusive experinece skyrim is a great example endless missions, textures, audio, npcs, gameplay changes, weapons, overhauls, graphics. All games are better on pc "period" Ana what about civ v, age of empires, swtor, star citizen?

Dantat

@greenknight1490 @Dantathah. There hasn't been a PC exclusive worth being excited for during the last half decade.. the last being Starcraft.

You peasants can go back to modding Skyrim for hundreds of hours just to wank off to the graphics.
