The Order: 1886 Preview – Game Knight with little depth




Long ago, around 1100, came the first orders of knighthood. Think of the Knights Templar, which was set up to take part in the Crusades of that time. Most other orders of knighthood stems from that time, and oddly enough they all still exist. So it is not strange that developer Ready at Dawn knights as a starting point for choosing The Order: 1886. Just like in 1886, was now also clear that a knighthood is something of the past, though they can indeed be active as you’ll find here.

Also order from The Order 1886 goes far back and leads a somewhat hidden existence. He is based in London from 1886, though we are not a historically accurate representation of the English capital. The game takes you to an alternate reality. It is London and much is recognizable, but there are clearly futuristic touches. The game does it think of Dishonored. That took place in an alternate reality, with London 1900 as the base.

Preview The Order: 1886

As in Dishonored you see the spirit back into the buildings, objects and decoration of the people you encounter. In particular, the members of The Order thereby look beautiful, especially in neat and stately uniforms. The kind of uniforms more suitable for a ball than a game pad, although the latter will take place earlier than the first, for that matter, there is in The Order 1886 little new under the sun; The Order of the Knights fight a lot.
Something with monsters

They have a variety of enemies in the game. So something is going on in the background with monsters. That even once was the reason to establish the knighthood. The world in The Order 1886 ever suffered under the onslaught of a half human, half-bestial race. Think of werewolves, though it seems that name in the game not to be used. Mankind for centuries has considerably suffered from the attacks of the physically strong monsters, but the industrial revolution has changed that. Since mankind has better technology, it manages to keep the beasts at bay, though the threat is not completely gone.

In the part of the game that we were playing for this preview, however, they were completely absent and also to be seen in earlier play sessions was not a monster. Just from the trailers released so far, we know that they appear in the game.
