The Order: 1886 Purposefully Made to Look Like a Movie

This past week Sony revealed a gameplay video of the upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive, The Order: 1886, and many gamers may have noticed the effects on the screen such as lens flare. Ready At Dawn has specifically gone to great lengths to try and make The Order: 1886 look like something you’d see in a blockbuster movie, and co-founder, Ru Weerasuriya said in OPM:

When we build cameras from the ground up, we try to emulate real glass that exists in the world. What would a real Canon 100mm prime shoot like? What would be the Bokeh, the chromatic aberration, the depth of field? That’s what we’re trying to build in every camera.

The developers have also gone the extra mile to try and recreate problems on the camera lens, just to make it feel that much more realistic and immersive:

And every camera has lens dirt. Imperfection makes it believable, so we emulate that too. Even the game cameras have depth of field, which normally you wouldn’t do. When you pan the camera across at someone 30 metres away it suddenly shifts – there’s a rack focus that happens at that point.

The Order: 1886 was scheduled for release in Fall 2014, and we are likely to hear more news regarding the title at this year’s E3 so stay tuned to PlayStationing for more details.
