The Order: 1886 on PS4 – A Deeper Look at the Demo Level Shows Ready at Dawn’s Detailed Design

At the Games Week currently going on in Milan Sony Computer Entertainment brought the latest version of the demo of The Order: 1886. While it was pretty much the same as what we’ve already seen at previous trade shows (short of a few tweaks, as PlayStation reps told me), I managed to catch on film some details that we don’t often get to see.

In the video below you can see a full playthrough of the demo, with the player taking his sweet time to roam a bit, but the most interesting part comes at the end. Another player, instead of rescuing the fallen policeman as instructed, just decides to ignore him, and walks around the area to explore what’s accessible.

Turns out you can actually enter a house and roam the street for a few tens of yards in both direction, showing some really lovely details, from the barricades to furniture, and even an umbrella. We’re in London after all.

Can’t say Ready at Dawn didn’t pay attention to detail when building the demo level. Hopefully we’re close to the time in which we’ll see something completely new, though. I’d say it’s right about time.
