30 FPS, 1080p confirmed for The Order: 1886; no multiplayer
The Order: 1886, one of the PlayStation 4's most anticipated exclusives, will run at 30 frames per second at 1080p resolution. Speaking to Play3, Ru Weerasuriay, co-founder at developing studio Ready at Dawn, explained the reason for 30 frames per second is to allowfor "spectacular effects."
“Currently we do not aim [for] 60 frames per second. In a first person shooter that [surely] makes sense," he told the site. "Also fighting games are undoubtedly predestined for 60 frames. But for us, the cinematic experience is in the foreground [basically focus] – presented in full HD 1080p. In favor of spectacular effects and the highest resolution we restrict ourselves to a fluid 30 frames per second."
Meanwhile, Andrea Pessino, the studio's other co-founder and chief technical officer, also confirmed that there will be no multiplayer in the game. He described The Order: 1886 as a "single player, third person action adventure game."
In a follow-up tweet, Pessino defended the decision by explaining it's "better to do one thing well than a whole bunch half-assed. We are trying to make a SP experience you will enjoy."
Given that the game follows a squad of characters, there was some expectation that it would allow for at least some sort of co-op play. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case.
