Introducing the cast of The Order: 1886

Meet the talented actors bringing Galahad and co. to life

With the many areas we have covered over the last few months as we approach the launch of our game, there is still one major aspect we haven’t yet addressed. And that is the cast of our game.

About a year into the project, once the story and initial script were written, it was time for us to cast our characters. The requirements were pretty stringent, the character sheets were filled with details of each of the protagonists that would make our game and define our world. Finding the right actors for these parts was the last piece of the puzzle to finally make each of our characters come to life.

The search was long. It took many months, rounds of casting and auditions with a wide spectrum of extremely talented actors. In the end, it came down to four people who would form the core of the Order’s most elite squad. We finally had our cast.

Steve West stepped in the shoes of our protagonist, Sir Galahad. He brought with him the balance and stoicism that Galahad exuded as a time and battle-worn Knight.

Alice Coulthard embodies the subtle and complex character traits that define Lady Ingraine; a lady of the Victorian Era with poise and decorum. But behind her facade lies a skilled and deft warrior.

Graham McTavish became the de facto leader when he stepped onto our stage. A favorite amongst both game and movie lovers, Graham is Sir Perceval, one of the most senior, wise and most trusted members of the Order.

The Marquis de Lafayette was always going to be a tricky character to approach and Frederik Hamel has done the role justice and much more, bringing the needed joviality and levity to balance our squad. And a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’…

Together our main cast became the backbone of the story and the relationships you will experience in the game. Each of our characters are symbols of the eras they came from. They each have the qualities and faults that are brought on but their respective experience and positions in the history of our world. Those of course not only had be translated into the script and brought to life by the actors, they also had to be visualized in the creation of their likenesses.

It is with immense pleasure that I am finally able to reveal the actors behind our Knights. And to find out more on how we went about creating and bringing them to life, I invite you to watch our next piece in our behind-the-scenes series:”The Cast of The Order: 1886“.

When will i be able to download the game from Ps Store?

The game supports pre-load and it’s mentioned that the game is available February 19.

1.1

I have pre-ordered the game too and want to know when will I able to pre-load it.

1.2

EU doesn’t really do pre-loading, not after the files for GTA V were able to be ripped.

Glad to hear we’re getting some fresh voice acting talent in this game. Can’t wait to pick it up this Friday! :)

Isn’t it a legal requirement to feature Troy Baker or Nolan North as a main character in all games?

Yes, Ready at Dawn have saved them for the uncharted cross over DLC

3.2

Glad I’ve FINALLY found someone else who agrees with me on this!

Nice insight on the cast, wishing everyone at Ready At Dawn success on their first PS4 title. Cannot wait, still waiting to hear about the Jack The Ripper DLC :)

I preordered a physical copy so I hope the game is as good as it looks and sounds ;)

Can’t wait rad have never disappointed me, I can’t believe some people are moaning about the length of the game online.

I know right, it’s like they complain about everything the game doesn’t have or do instead of focusing on what it does have and does so well.

People with various agendas have talked about the length of The Order and a speed run YouTube video where they skip through certain parts of the game and deaths does not tell the full story.

Ready at Dawn’s internal metrics show that if you play the game at a normal pace and difficulty level, you can finish the game in a window between eight and ten hours. If you play in hard mode or you take your time to seek for every single little detail, you’ll probably clock about twelve hours or more.

10 hours of quality would definitely be worth it.

Wish the fans of CGI films and QTEs a good 5 hours “experience”… but I would like clarification about the last guardian project.

7.1

I would also like to know what’s going on with the Last Guardian now Oo

7.2

Last Guardian is still in development. It’s not dead.

7.3

Yea, apparently not prolonging the trademark was an administrative error.. So there’s still hope after half a decennium :p

I CAN’T WAIT! ! ! :P :P :P (but can’t watch the Video because i am avoiding anything about this game so it’s all new when i play the game on Friday) ;)

Can’t wait, this is always such a boring period with little game releases. Just hope the game doesn’t drop half price after barely a month or two, like I’ve experienced with a lot of PS exclusives..

Graham McTavish I remember him from uncharted 2 & 3 and of course red dwarf series 8.

Anyone playing Dying light? Lookin for ppl to play with

Nice avatar :-)

Not playing ‘dying light’ though :-(

Really would like some clarification on the game’s length, i really don’t fancy spending £52.99 on a 5 hour game!

12.1

I think that is someone who did a speed run though the game I don’t mind has long has its good.
I think it should take most people 8-10 hours what I have read which is fine by me.

12.2

standard playthrough should be 8 hours if not playing on easy.
7 if you run a lot.
9-10 if on hard

12.3

I’m buying it for 49.99€ retail, which is around £37.

NA PSN > EU PSN

No Critics Choice Sale for EU ?

EU Store sucks …

Calm down, we *should* be having a new sale this week.

Picking this up on a price drop. Yes, I’ve been influenced by the pre-reviews. That is all.

14.1

What pre-reviews?
Everyone on NeoGAF who played it trough says it’s awesome and if you are interested it’s worth the full price.

We’re all allowed to make our own decisions on our purchases. If NeoGaf say its worth the full price, and you’ll buy the game based on that, why should I tell you not to buy it?

The Order 1886 is the only reason I bought a PS4. I’ve waited for the release date for so long. Unfortunately, from everything I’ve read so far (good and bad), it just seems to me that the game is not what I expected it to be. Not that it is a bad game, but my extremely high expectations of the game have been crushed.

Completely off topic: I strongly believe Ready at Dawn could have handled all the negativity around this game much better.

Instead of paying £60 or $60 around all this controversy (which has really exposed the decline of gaming journalism and useful gamer comments), I’d rather wait for all the madness to die down, and buy it at a price point I’m happy with.

14.3

Yeah, nothing like that. I just wondered what “pre-reviews” were you talking about what influenced you to not to buy it?
Because every “pre-review” I’ve read basically said “BUY IT, NOW”

@ misi2mezei just because neogaf said something doesn’t imply that they are right, Neogaf is the kind of Sony-biased community that defends games at 30FPS, games over-priced considering the lack of content in them, boring and QTE ridden “cinematic experiences” that are underwhelming
But waste your money just because neogaf said it, don’t use your own judgement

I am still umm and urrs about this title. I liked the video they brought forward. I may wait a bit for the title to get out for a while then get my hands on it.

We close the comments for posts after 30 days.
