The Order: 1886 made a big splash when it debuted at Sony’s E3 2013 Press Conference. But while the cinematic trailer was absolutely epic, we were left to speculate exactly what kind of game The Order: 1886 would be. Thankfully, a PlayStation Blog EU interview with Ready At Dawn’s Ru Weerasuriya has shed some (lamp)light on the steampunk game.
PS Blog: So, exactly what kind of game is The Order: 1886?
Ru Weerasuriya: The Order is a third person action adventure with shooting mechanics. It’s very much story-based – it’s a linear story-based game. We’re trying to tell a story. It’s what we call a “filmic experience.”
The whole interview is definitely worth a read and, I can’t stress this enough, you really need to watch the trailer again.
