The Order: 1886 - Part 1

Finally stopped being a lazy putz and got my screenshots from the PS4. Today we start a new Photo Mode set, for The Order:1886, an alternate history cover shooter set in Britain in the year, WAIT FOR IT, 1886. In this universe, the Knights Of The Round Table are still a thing, and they're packing heat.

Before we start, totally get Until Dawn if you're a horror fan. I know games are $74.99 in Canada for a standard edition, but if you can spare the money, do get this game new and support its creators. While it does have a lot of jump scares (personally not a fan), it's still got a lot of great tension build-up and atmosphere, and it is a great and campy tribute to all eras of horror. Be prepared to have great reflexes if you want the best outcomes, though, since Quick-Time Events are aplenty and can be unforgiving (while non-essential, I keep missing the one to high-five Josh, what am I even doing with my life?!).

Anywho, let's get on with the new set, shall we? Hit the jump, good sir or madam, and grab a cuppa.

The game opens with our player character, Sir Galahad (real name Grayson), as a prisoner.

Grayson arms himself. Also, ominous blood-dripping corpse-in-a-cage.

Sorry, Galahad, but tea time will have to wait.
Thanks for reading, stay tuned for more of The Order: 1886!
