Plus: Total War: Attila launches this week.

This week, Ready At Dawn's supernatural shooter The Order: 1886 hits Australian retailers on February 20. The game is set in a steampunk Victorian era and revolves around an order of knights who fight to protect the world from half-breed werewolves.

Weapons in the game are part based on real, Victorian-era technology, part science-fiction. Ready At Dawn has confirmed that inventor Nikola Tesla will appear in the game. If you think the game looks pretty visually impressive, Ready At Dawn studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya told GameSpot in an interview that the game was built to showcase the power of the PlayStation 4.

The Order: 1886 has been in development for three and half years. For our early impressions of the game, specifically with regards to its gameplay, check out editor Mark Walton's preview.

Total War fans will be interested in this week's release of Total War: Attila, the latest standalone entry in the series of strategy games. The game is set in Europe around 400 A.D. Total War: Attila was positively received in GameSpot's review, praised for its gorgeous and well-scaled world map and unpredictability, but criticized for its glitches and cluttered interface. To see what everyone else is saying about the game, we rounded up all the reviews right here.

For more details on games out this week, check the full list below.

Interesting. I come to Gamespot. Click on "PC", to read about PC games, and in the list is a PS4 exclusive. So how did this make it into the PC section?

I played Dying light, had fun but the game is a total Turd. No story, no character development and full of collision and other inconsistent gameplay mechanics. My point is I know a lot of the ppl in this group have played Dying light, and some defended it as a great game. I'd rather see a game like the order 1886 that is obviously a tight well polished game with story and character development do well than a game like Dying light.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Dying Light is actually really good... on PC. On consoles I agree it's a turd just like The Order.

God of War 3 and Uncharted 2 were some of the best games I ever played and both were about 8 hours (for me). Same goes for inFAMOUS: Second Son, though the two playthroughs or a platinum trophy extended that time beyond twelve hours. I am fine with 5-7 hours, particularly for a highly story-driven TPS that looks like this game does. Haters can slurp on a bunghole.

There are other games with steampunk which offer greater value than this.

Good grief, you people are shallow. Usually, I wouldn't give two-sh*ts about what people like you happen to like, but it's people like you who are ruining the games industry. You encourage the creation of products with shallow value.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Do you think it is still worth it with only 5 hours of game play? I was exited initially, but now I'm disappointed at how short it is. :( Cancelling my pre-order.

Bloodbourne is a month off, if The Order is even 10 hours long it's not gonna fill much of that part hehe.

Depends if it's a good story or not I guess. If it's good I'll play it through a few times.

Without stating too many spoilers here after having seen the leaked playthrough, I will say here that the appeal of the game is close to what you expect from a typical Call of Duty single-player "campaign": it's exciting enough to get one playing from start to end - but in hindsight, there's no more value beyond that.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Except COD has great feel and can be ramped up to be challenging. Additionally, the set pieces and weapons are usually pretty fantastic. This game is a Friday night rental at best. After a single playthrough, it's going to sit on the shelf next to Knack and Infamous and DDRRRIIIVVVEEECCCHHHHHHUUUBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBB! PS4 people are so gullible. Enjoy your "powerhouse" of a system without any games to justify buying it.

Yet Destiny players can replay the same exact Strike missions and Raids week after week without a single complaints putting in hundreds of hours of redundancy.

<< LINK REMOVED >> i think they can do that because of the comradery. The social part of the game, is the draw. I used to play Ultima Online for hours we'd spend 30 minutes to an hour a night on a hunt or something, and 4 - 5 hours just chatting and crap in a castle. lol

people don't seem to be too blown away by this, i think the lack of hype will benefit this games finale score. it's either just gonna be forgettable, or it's gonna be one of those surprisingly good games.

I think this game is gonna suck. First impressions from other journalists haven't been all that great. Yet another disappointing PS4 exclusive by the looks of it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Not trying to defend the game itself, but a lot of medias stated that beating the game in 5 hours meant that the guy playing rushed through it. And he did, not inspecting / interacting with anything else and sprinting to doors. I can beat any 12 hours long SP action games in 5 hours in that fashion. Dead Space 2 / 3, Max Payne 3, Evil Within, Alien Isolation ( took me 8 hours on my first run ) and so on.


Just google it, you'll find the articles right away.
