After a prolonged development that saw it slip from its original 2014 release window, Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886 is due to arrive tomorrow, February 20, exclusively on PlayStation 4, and Sony has detailed the game’s minute yet mandatory day-one update.
Weighing in at a mere 30MB in size, the patch is designed to rectify a small number of bugs within the Victorian-era shooter, all the while addressing an issue with save files.
Here’s an official description of the update as provided by Sony:
Patch 1.01 will be available upon booting up the game and fixes six rare, multi-step, low production rate (hard to reproduce) crashes, the most impactful of which resulted in impacted save data. As of now, 1.01 is the only patch we have scheduled for The Order: 1886.
Over the past number of days, The Order: 1886 has been thrust into the limelight for all the wrong reasons, after an early YouTube playthrough claimed that the game was only five hours in length. Ready at Dawn has since denounced the accusation, stating that the videos show a skewed representation of the PS4 exclusive given that the user chose to play through the story as quickly as possible.
Whatever the case, you can gauge The Order: 1886‘s value-for-money credentials when it launches for PS4 tomorrow. Until then, sate your appetite for Ready at Dawn’s visually-astute title by checking out our review.
