On the brighter side, Sony and Ready at Dawn are doing a great job of keeping the fan's excitement raging with the latest "The Order: 1886" gameplay teasers.
Weeks after the confirmation that the "monsters" from "The Order: 1886" would be lycans, which came from different werewolf mythologies of several ancient cultures, the developer of "The Order: 1886," Ready At Dawn Studios, is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the formation of the game's out of this world enemies. The new monsters in the game called lycans will stand as an important enemy to players of "The Order: 1886's" single-player campaign, and Ready At Dawn seriously made sure that the danger was connected to each half-breed werewolves' appearance.
Many efforts are done in making the new enemies in the game, like looking for a way on how to transform the lycans without having to use the usual visual trickery, as said by a new developer diary from the studio. The usual way of transformations like lycans' transform from human to werewolf is made by cutting away from a character long enough to replace them with a new texture model. But for Ready At Dawn Studios that wasn't good enough.
It needs a great effort to connect both the magnitude of the transformation and to control each monster from feeling like part of a supernatural clone army, Ready At Dawn studios has harnessed the power of the PS4 to adapt to each character's texture model in-engine. The transformations are at least partially-scripted, but the result is that each lycan will still have the aspects of his appearance that make them easy to recognise in the post-transformation.
The current "The Order: 1886" teaser released by Sony and Ready At Dawn also releases few scenes of the gameplay trailer that haven't been seen in the previous trailers for the game. The studio's CEO and creative director said, in a new post on the U.S. PlayStation Blog, there are two different segments of "The Order: 1886" campaign were shown to E3 2014 conference earlier this month.
