The Order: 1886

Ready at Dawn’s upcoming alternate-history PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 is already shaping up to be one of the prettiest titles in the next generation platform’s pipeline, but it’s not being constructed by an enormous team. While it’s normal for franchises such as Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty to command headcounts of up to 500 employees these days, a modest number of around 80 developers are working on the London-set adventure.

The snippet was revealed as part of a technical presentation anchored by the Californian studio at computer graphics conference SIGGRAPH. While the gubbins of the appearance delve pretty deeply into the nitty-gritty of the title’s visual performance, the firm did release a video showing off its textile scanning process. We’ve embedded that below in case you’re curious. You can also peruse the studio's full Powerpoint document through here, but be warned: it features mathematics equations in places. Urgh.
