The Order 1886
Ready At Dawn has announced that the PS4-exclusive “The Order 1886” has been pushed back until early 2015, and at the same time delivered a new featurette about the inspirations for the Victorian London-set action game.
The announcement follows a controversial week for the game which decided to show off actual gameplay from the new title via Twitch. The resulting compressed quality and frame rate drops from that streaming service quickly lead to claims the game has been “downgraded” (ala “Watch Dogs”).
Reviews are finally out for the “Watch Dogs” game and the reaction is quite good, but not great with a lot of 8/10 scores cropping up. On Metacritic, the game’s score varies between 82/100 and 77/100 depending upon the platform.
That puts it behind “Dark Souls II” (91), “Mario Kart 8” (89), “Titanfall” (86), “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition” (86), “Transistor” (84) and “Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze” (83). It’s around on par though with some well regarded recent titles like “Child of Light” (82); “South Park: The Stick of Truth” (82), “inFamous: Second Son” (80), “Trials Fusion” (79) and “Wolfenstein: The New Order” (78).
LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games and The LEGO Group have announced “LEGO Batman: Beyond Gotham,” a third entry in the popular LEGO Batman video game series. The title will be made available on all five major consoles (PS3, PS4, XB1, XB360, Wii U) and on PC.
The story of the new game sees the Caped Crusader joining forces with the super heroes of the DC Comics Universe and blasts off to outer space to stop the evil Brainiac from destroying Earth. The game is set to contain over a hundred unique characters from the DC Comics universe.
Both “The Evil Within” and “Evolve” have scored the same new release date after both were pushed back by several months. Both are now set for release on October 21st in North America, whilst Europe and Australia get them later that week.
