The Order: 1886 Isn’t Sure What Resolution It Wants To Be
Ready at Dawn Founder and Chief Technology Officer Andrea Pessino today released some details via Twitter about the hugely hyped PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886.
Pessino revealed firstly that the game will run with 4x antialiasing, but the Ready at Dawn have still not decided on the final resolution for the game.

Not set in stone yet, but we do run 4xMSAA which looks spectacular! x800 with AA looks MUCH better than x1080 without : )
Pessino also stated that running the game at 1080p without antialiasing would actually require less hardware resources than 1920×800 with the option enabled, which smooths edges.
To be clear, x800 with 4xMSAA needs more bandwidth than x1080 would, so 1080 no MS would be cheaper.
He’s right there, as 4x MSAA is a very hardware taxing feature for PC gamers.
Pessino also further clarified why the game won’t have a multiplayer mode. It’s a simple explanation, but it’s effective:
Correct. No multiplayer, it is a single player, third person action adventure game. : )
Better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed. : ) We are trying to make a SP experience you will enjoy.
He also explained why he doesn’t have the details on what trailers and information will be available and when. The message there is to stop asking.
I honestly don’t know yet the details of what will be made available or when, sorry. I am as curious as you are. : )
Pessino later added further information about the aspect ratio of the game, saying that it’s an artistic choice and he doubts it will change at this point.
The aspect ratio is a core artistic choice (frame, FOV, etc), added performance is a bonus but nowhere near crucial
I very much doubt that vision is going to change at this point. The game is built around it. : )
Yesterday an interview with Play3 about The Order broke embargo and was taken down, but not before it revealed that the game would run at 30FPS, which has caused a bit of a stir on the internet. We’ll have to wait to see the storm reaction to that when it’s officially revealed and the explanations are tossed around.
According DualShockers, the embargo on the footage showcased at the press tour in London two days ago will end on the 18th. There will be another press tour in the US on the 10th though.
Basically, there’s still a bit of time until we’ll actually get to see The Order in action.
