The Order: 1886 Interview Reveals The Game Runs At 30FPS
German website Play3.de surprised us all by revealing some hectic news about The Order: 1886, although it seems that it might have been premature and broke its embargo because it has since been removed.
In a new interview by Play3, Ready at Dawn boss Ru Weerasuriya allegedly confirmed that the game has no multiplayer mode. It’s single player only.

When he asked about the genre of the game he said:
The title is a third-person single player action game.
And when he was asked about a possible PS3 port in future he said:
We currently work exclusively on the PS4 version, Games are always designed for cross-platforms, But clearly, if there is a possibility to take over the physics system to other platforms, we would use this.
Furthermore, what is surely going to surprise a great many PS4 fans, The Order apparently will not run at 60FPS, but will be set at 30FPS and 1080P and the reasons are pretty bizarre.
Gamingbolt caught the quote from the interview, where Weerasuriya explained:
Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second. In a first person shooter that [surely] makes sense. Also fighting games are undoubtedly predestined for 60 frames. But for us, the cinematic experience is in the foreground [basically focus] – presented in full HD 1080p. In favor of spectacular effects and the highest resolution we restrict ourselves to a fluid 30 frames per second.
While I am completely happy with the game being single player only, as I strongly dislike tacked on multiplayer, I am surprised and disappointed that the game won’t run at 60FPS, which we expected all exclusives to.
I don’t understand their reasoning to be honest, because it makes no sense that a “cinematic experience” is delivered better in 30FPS. The explanation seems like a lot of words thrown together but if you actually read them they make zero sense.
I guess we will have to wait for the interview to resurface or an official word from Ready at Dawn on the issue.
