So GameInformer recently got some time with the studio who develops this game (Ready at Dawn), and they have a special report in their upcoming issue, in addition to the cover spot.
They seem pretty impressed, especially with the visuals (claiming it's the best looking console game they've ever seen so far). First gameplay screenshots have been released as well.
Some comments and quotes from the articles (I know a lot of you wont open the links most likely)
-As was readily apparent when the game was first announced at E3 2013, The Order: 1886 is beautiful. And Game Informer confirms that “the visuals on display in [the debut] trailer represent The Order’s in-game graphical quality.” Indeed, the technology behind the game and the game’s proprietary next-gen engine are quite impressive, as we noted when we saw the game behind-closed doors at Gamescom. Ready at Dawn showed the trailer again to GI, while adjusting camera angles and modifiying light sources on the fly to confirm it is in fa
-Ready at Dawn’s co-founder Ru Weerasuriya has gotten help in writing The Order: 1886 from screenwriter Kirk Ellis. Game Informer notes that the game’s plot revolves around “an unusual amalgam of history, fantasy, mythology, and science fiction.”
-The Order of the knights itself is created to buffer humanity from the threat posed by the "Half-Breeds", and humanity wages a losing war against these mysterious monsters until a liquid known as “Black Water” begins to give The Order an advantage. “By imbibing the strange liquid, the knights [of the Order] gain incredibly longer lives and equally impressive abilities to recover from injury. The knights continue to age, but at a dramatically slower rate, letting them wage war across centuries,” Game Informer explains.
-The Order: 1886 also touches into real history, and twists it a bit. The third character introduced is none other than Marquis de Lafayette, as in, the real Marquis de Lafayette, the man who proved vital in both the American Revolution and the French Revolution. He’s still alive and kicking as of 1886, as is Sebastian Malory, titled Sir Percival, who is a relative of Thomas Malory, the famed British author.
