Once upon a time, Ready at Dawn’s Andrea Pessino mentioned that by using Black Sight it’s posssible to shoot grenades in midair in The Order: 1886, and today we get to see it in action, thanks to an animated GIF posted by NeoGAF user Azdoune.
That looks extremely cool, doesn’t it? Right from the hip.
We also get some new information on the game’s replayability, directly from the virtual pen of Community Manager J Goldberg.
You can go back and replay any chapter, or start at specific checkpoints within those chapters. This is both as you progress through the game, and once you’ve finished the game.
Interestingly, we also get some info on the game’s length. According to NeoGAF user luca_29_bg saw the chapter selection menu during one of the increasingly common livestreams on Twitter, and it included over 24 chapters.
Considering that the first chapter is roughly an hour long, that definitely seems to be a nice chunk of content, even if we should probably take in account that the first chapter may be longer than the others to introduce the story, and there might be shorter chapters among longer ones.
One thing is for sure. The rumors about a 10-12 hour experience seem to be gaining credibility as the game’s release approaches.
Incidentally, Andrea Pessino got today his first piece of positive press feedback from a journalist that finished the game. Looks like he was rather enthusiastic.
Today I met the first journalist that had finished the game – I was moved by how much he liked it and he “got” it all. We talked a lot…

Hopefully the game will really be up to the massive expectations weighing upon its launch. For now, we can only wait and see.
