PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886’s Screenshots Compare Gameplay With The Awesome New Color Options

on April 13, 2015 1:34 PM

One of the most interesting aspects of the new patch of The Order: 1886 that added photo mode is the ability to retain the color grading from Photo mode even during gameplay.

There are 21 different presets on top of the default colors, and each can be fine tuned in intensity from 0 to 100%.

If you want to see just how different the game can look with the different color grading options, we took screenshot of each at 100% intensity of two different scenes of the game.

It’s relevant to mention that this is gameplay, not inside photo mode, so no other camera options have been changed.

In order to activate the option during gameplay, you have to go into photo mode (it needs to be activated in the options), press L1 three times to find the “Lock Grading” option and activate it. Then select the color grading you like, and exit photo mode.

But that’s not all. What the trailer didn’t tell you is that other options can be retained on top of color grading. Brightness Vignette and Film Grain can also be retained, meaning that you can truly customize the look of the game.

The first picture in the first two galleries below is the default option, followed by the 21 color grading presets. The third gallery shows gameplay without variations followed by brightness exposure and lens flare changes, 100 and -100 vignette effect and 100% and 0% film grain intensity. The last picture shows 100% film grain intensity and size.
