‘The Order: 1886’ Claims Top Spot on UK Charts

Developer Ready at Dawn’s action horror game The Order: 1886 hasn’t had a particularly smooth launch. There was criticism regarding its length before the game even released, and when it did, the reception was lukewarm at best. Despite all this, the game seems to be selling well in the UK, where it’s managed to claim the top spot.

1. The Order 1886
2. Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
3. Evolve
4. Far Cry 4
5. Grand theft Auto V
6. FIFA 15
7. Minecraft: Xbox Edition
8. Zelda Majora’s Mask 3D
9. Minecraft: Playstation Edition
10. Destiny

Don’t care about numbers? Me neither. How about we forget about all that nonsense and just enjoy this The Order: 1886-themed fact-filled Fast Facts video instead.

    This is so sad because this non-game was so bad. Sold well here because of the “hype.” Wolfenstein and The Evil Within were the best games in the genre and the best on the systems so far.

    I don’t really mind this game. I didn’t really pay for it as it came bundled with my PS4 and a couple of other games, so that might be part of it.. But I found the lore was really cool. It would have been nice to have more interactivity though, absolutely.

    I really liked this game so im happy that its getting good sales so far.
    Dont think the game deserves the hate that its getting.
    I hope the game will get popular enough to get sequels and become a new game series.

      I feel the exact same way. It’s getting so much unwarranted hate. I’m glad it’s getting the good sales it deserves.

      It’s a decent game. I feel people are complaining for complaining’s sake. There are MANY other games that follow similar suit but get praised for it. I don’t get it lol.

      I also liked it quite a bit. Sometimes I just want a really gorgeous, focused, linear game that is clear and concise. Same reason I liked MGS 2: Sons of Liberty, and MGS 4 (that had 90 minute cutscenes!), and for that matter, Asura’s Wrath for PS3. I wanted to just experience it – and I loved every second of it! I also love the unadulterated freedom from open world games like Far Cry 4 and GTA V. The options are staggering, and the random shit that often occurs while roaming around is the most fun I’ve had in this generation of gaming. Truth is, they can be a little overwhelming, and at the end of the day, the story gets lost in the rest of the stuff. In lesser games, it’s caller “filler”, and I don’t like it at all. I’ll take a shorter game with a clear vision that delivers, over a long drawn-out game any day. I’ll also take a gorgeous cinematic vision thats fun, but perhaps is lean in gameplay over a fetch-quest experience any day of the week. I feel like those open-world games are actually over saturating the market of late, which is why something like The Order: 1886 is so wonderful, and welcome, for what it is. I really hope it sells enough for a sequel, because this type of game is just as fun, and valid to me as a gamer, as one that’s loaded with content. Again, I absolutely loved it for what it was 🙂

    Not like PS4 gamers can pick and choose what to play next as it was the only new game released! So it makes sense that people played 1886: The short order.
