Sony just streamed a short preview of their upcoming steampunk shooter on Twitch. It sure looks impressive.

In the clip above, you’ll get a sense of how some of the game’s weapons and environments look, as well as a taste of an early gunfight. The Order: 1866 is scheduled to hit PS4 later this year.

  • Looks very nice, though the frame rate seems low (which is probably just the stream).

    Looks like gameplay in line with every console FPS/TPS. People will probably lap this up.

    • The game runs at 30fps though, so whilst the stream is likely responsible for how it appears, that’s not exactly smooth. I mean, it’s certainly playable, but hopefully it doesn’t feel too jarring or sluggish.

      Turned out to be a pretty disappointing glimpse seeing as it was only a stream of 3 minutes showing your typical cover-based shooter mechanics… Would wait to get a proper good look before making any major judgments though, as the Victorian theme is definitely a step in the right direction.

  • I hope there’s more to it than shooting the same enemy from behind cover. This is the next gen, don’t bring us the same games we’ve been playing for the last 8 years on the last gen

  • Yea looks like a generic shooter so far. But I like how the explosion animations looks more like steel mill blast furnaces rather than your usual explosions. Steampunkish goodness

  • I dunno about the kickback on some of the weapons, but that’s some of the worst aiming I’ve ever seen on a gameplay demo…

  • gun sounds need some diversity, and to be affected by the environment and direction. Gets repetitive real fast.
