We’re very excited to announce a new feature that has been requested by fans of The Order: 1886. In the latest patch you’ll find our powerful new Photo Mode. Fans expressed an overwhelming desire to see and share the realism, beauty, and detail of our Neo-Victorian world. With Photo Mode, you’ll be able to compose, capture, and share stunning images of your favorite moments, characters, and environments.
Developed by Ready At Dawn from the ground up, we took a slightly different approach with our version of Photo Mode while trying to keep many aspects of it familiar so that users would immediately feel at home using the feature, which includes a fully untethered camera. To learn about our Photo Mode in The Order: 1886, please watch this tutorial video.
As shown in the video, we’ve added the ability for you to play the game with your selected Colour Grading. Want to see what The Order: 1886 feels like if you play through it in high-contrast, gritty, black & white? Since The Order: 1886 is completely rendered in real-time with no pre-rendered frames, you’re able to play in a customized look from beginning to end. If at any time you want to change Color Grading styles during gameplay, simply enter Photo Mode and make your adjustment. You can also reset the option if you wish to play the game as it was originally intended.
To kick off Photo Mode, we’re also running a special contest (click here to visit the official page and legal rules), looking to find what our fans are capable of with this new addition to The Order: 1886. Our team has worked to give aspiring in-game photographers the best creative resources, and will reward the best of the best with prizes that include team-signed prints of your photo and The Order: 1886 swag packs!
