With Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886 set to launch this Friday, the developer is working to ensure that the PlayStation 4 exclusive is released with a few issues as possible. To that end, users will be asked to download a minor day-one patch for The Order: 1886 the first time that they start up the game, according to PlayStation Lifestyle.
This initial small patch specifically addresses six different bugs that can cause crashes within The Order: 1886. The update also fixes certain save data issues from taking place. Gamers won’t have to worry about ever encountering these issues themselves, since this first update for The Order: 1886 is ready to go live at launch. The PlayStation Lifestyle report revealed the full list of changes from the day-one update.
“Patch 1.01 Details
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.”
A report from Gearnuke revealed that the mandatory launch update for The Order: 1886 is so small that it will only require a 30 MB download. Additionally, gamers can now begin downloading the PS4 exclusive since PSN pre-loads are now live. The initial download is 6.44 GB, while the full file size for The Order: 1886 is just over 30 GB.
As the Inquisitr pointed out earlier this week, The Order: 1886 has recently been the source of internet controversy due short length of the title’s campaign. The developer even confirmed that speed-runs could clear the game in less than six hours. The Order: 1886 director Dana Jan spoke with Develop to argue that game length shouldn’t affect the overall experience. Jan compared The Order: 1886 to an expensive dinner that may be brief but provides a satisfactory experience nonetheless.
“If you go and you eat a steak, if you pay $100 for a steak that tastes like the best steak you’ve ever had in your life but it’s only 200 grams versus paying the same price for the worst steak you could want–but it’s all-you-can-eat… There’s an argument to be made that one is better than the other depending on who you are. If you just want to be full all the time then all-you-can-eat terrible steak, maybe that’s for you?”
The Order: 1886 launches this Friday only on the PlayStation 4. Patch 1.01 will be available to download upon release.
