‘The Order: 1886’ Runs At 30 FPS, Won’t Have Multiplayer

The upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 will make full use of the console’s capabilities by running in 1080p at 30 frames-per-second. The announcement was made via Twitter, where Ready At Dawn’s chief technical officer and co-founder Andrea Pessino confirmed the single-player focus, by saying “[The Order] is a single player, third person action adventure game.”

There are more than enough games that are capable of scratching my multiplayer itch, so I’m all for a game that instead offers a meaty campaign I can enjoy alone, in the dark, while dressed in my best Victorian London garb. How about you?

The Order: 1886 releases later this year for the PlayStation 4.

    I know I’m going to come off as a huge nerd here… But 1080p and 30fps does NOT take full use of the consoles capabilities. I’m pretty excited for this game and it’s definitely not a deal breaker for me (It’s a single player shooter 60fp isn’t gonna make or break it). I was hoping 60fps would be the standard for next gen but it’s not looking that way.

      “1080p and 30fps does NOT take full use of the consoles capabilities.”

      I see alot of this going on in different forums.

      The fact is, if it’s not a twitch shooter or a super-speedy racing game it doesn’t need 60fps. This is a 3rd person slower paced action game. The dev described it as The Last Of Us meets Assassin’s Creed.

      I’m not a Sony fanboy so please don’t think that’s why I’m defending it. There’s so many variables that people don’t think about. 1. This game is using a new game engine. 2. Everything will have more complex physics than any PC game has even had. 3. We (the game players) are not developers and even if we are, we haven’t developed a AAA experience like this.

      About any devs taking “full” advantage of the newly released consoles… That won’t happen anytime soon. The hardware and programming tools are too new. But I am betting we will see more 1080p 60fps games in the coming years once devs learn new tricks.

      I think Infamous Second is 1080p and 30fps but I don’t anyone will complain with that being 30fps because it’s still better looking than any PC game (running at double the resolution and settings maxed, that is) to date. Sony even said this game looks better than Infamous: Second Son and that it will be Game Of The Year. That’s some big talk from Sony, considering the game isn’t out yet but with games like Uncharted and The Last Of Us, I have reason to have more than enough faith in them to deliver.

        I see a lot of your answer going on, unfortunately it’s as short sighted as you claim the original statement is. 60fps does not exclude itself to just racers and fps games. A game that runs at 60fps+ allows itself to run smoother, with more animation detail allowing for a far more impressive experience than most 30fps experiences in comparison. A great example is the new Tombraider definitive version, though not 60, it runs around 45 on the ps4 and 30 on the xboxone, the difference is very clear. When running on my pc, I get around 62 – 65 fps (via fraps) with my 760 card allowing for an amazingly smooth experience in comparison to the ps3 or xbox 360 versions which ran at a locked 30fps. Games such as inFamous 1 and 2 ran at 30fps as was usual for that gen, but unfortunately this was also due to hardware limitations. There are obviously reasons for choosing a lower framerate that we aren’t privvy to and obviously later in a consoles lifecycle developers will get better, but at this point, you’d think developers would be aspiring to do a little better.

    I never said 60fps was limited to FPS and Driving, I was simply stating that if a game doesn’t require cat like reactions and responsiveness from the players it’s not neccessary. We have new engines that do more with less, that includes frames per second. For PC eletist that’s hard to believe but if you googled I think you could learn alot on that.

    And if this is going to turn out to be the classic arguement of the PC Eletist vs The Console gamer scenario, I’d like to adress it…

    Yes, Tomb Raider’s FPS can go above 60fps on PC while the PS4 version may not but I have yet to see a review which states the PC version is the more enjoyable of the 2. As far as the devs claim, the PS4 version of Tomb Raider is the Definitive and better version of the two. And it’s not just with Tomb raider but devs of other games are saying Watch Dogs, Thief, ect. will look and play better on PS4.

    If you look at PS4/XB1 versions of Tomb Raider, they clearly look amd play better than Tomb Raider on a High End PC maxed out.

    Also, going back to the original arguement,
    There are reasons why I trust devs when they say “60fps is not needed, 30fps is good enough” especially when these statements are from the industry’s top developers.

    It’s different coming from people who are not deverlopers.

    Lastly, I know alot of PC eletists are being sore because there are games like Infamous Second Son and The Order 1886 look better than any PC game to date so while you say “You’d think developers would be apsiring to do a little better.” The rest of the world is wondering how these devs went from making strictly psp games to making games for PS4 that look and play better than any PC Game.

    I mean we could argue all day but at the end of the day you cant really say “PS4/XBOX1 isnt powerful enough to run the game at 60fps but a PC can.” We all know that that isnt the case now days. Now it’s more or less developer decision and how to optomize. If devs wanted they could easily say 60fps is the better but in most cases there is no real advantages to it, in the end it would be a waste of resources and energy.

    Don’t get me wrong, I do love the advantages PC gaming offers as far as being able to slale your own visual settings (AA, High & Low settings) I am a PC gamer at heart. I love my PC but realistically the last “Great” PC game is Crysis 3 & that seems like forever ago.

    30fps and 1080p wasn’t what I expected… honestly, I was expecting better… and I was sort of hoping there was multiplayer, but I’m still excited to play, I’m still going to get it. Still seems like a GREAT GAME!!!

    Actually the article is wrong. It’s not native 1080p. It’s actually 800p with 4x mmsa or the like. That was the last comment by developer as he said it looks better with the mmsa than being 1080p. He also said it’s not set in stone. So the article isn’t quite accurate.
