The Order: 1886 inspired by Uncharted 2

Thursday, 29th August 2013 22:47 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was the shot in the arm Ready At Dawn needed to get it pitching its first original project, PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886.

Ready at Dawn co-founder Ru Weerasuriya told Eurogamer that the company was founded to make The Order: 1886, but it was seeing neighbour Naughty Dog’s second Uncharted game come to fruition that gave the team the confidence it needed to make it happen.

“With the second game suddenly they created an emotion in people of that Hollywood blockbuster,” he said.

“We’re not trying to emulate things they’ve done moment to moment. We’re trying to give people that similar sense of entertainment. Entertainment comes in big Hollywood blockbusters and small indie movies – it’s that.

“Games don’t do that enough. Sometimes you get just stuck in one gameplay sequence or one thing you do all the way through. They gave us a multitude of things that created a whole. Once you played the game you felt, wow, that was a great ride. That’s where the inspiration came from.

“It was one of the first times in my life when I felt, wow, you know what? That was an amazing ride. There was no single moment when I was like, that was just cool and that’s the thing I love. The feeling at the end was, I just want more of this. This is what I want to do. This is what gaming is for me. That’s what drove us to do this.”

The Order: 1886 is a cinematic third-person shooter which has not been dated. Ready At Dawn’s past work includes mostly ports, although it did develop PSP title Daxter.

    If “Uncharted 2 Drake’s Deception” was the sequel to Uncharted 3 Among Thieves then it would have been a killer end to the trilogy, but alas it wasn’t :)

    Edit: Ok enough of being a smart ass, Uncharted 2 Among Thieves.

    Point: On my watch list for the setting and that Uncharted inspiration among Dying Light and many others. (I don’t know why).

    This and InFamous: Second Son are currently what;s swaying me towards the PS4 right now.

    If only the pad was as good as the Xbone’s…

    Uncharted 2 was great. Can only plays through those games once but loved every minute of it (while I wasn’t fighting against the limp dual shock sticks.)

    I hope this has a strong emphasis on melee combat and combos as well as some meaty shooting.

    Uncharted 2 was the epic of epic epicness of epic.

    Its not a great inspiration, its the best news for anybody who still had doubts with this project, like me.

    @7: No, funnily enough I’ve yet to try either pad yet, nor seen the finished consoles, only the dev kits. Hopefully the PS4 pad will be the better of the two, I just think the Xbone’s looks more comfy. Eager to be proven wrong though.

    And yes, a massive one… honestly, you have no idea ;)

    “That was an amazing ride” – that’s exactly how I felt after playing the Uncharted games and now more recently The Last of Us. If you ask me, as far as role models goes, they couldn’t pick a better team than ND.

    judging by comment #13 he has only played uncharted 3, which imo is the weakest of the series
