The Order: 1886 Averages 8-10 Hours of Playtime

The Sony exclusive The Order: 1886 has been in the news a lot lately due to its estimated short play time, however, Ready at Dawn’s Chief Technical Officer (CTO) finally put the rumors to rest.

Andrea Pessino addressed the speculations recently at an event in Milan.  According to the developer, The Order: 1886 has an average playtime of 8-10 hours and could be completed in five and half hours if the player rushes.


The YouTuber PlayMeThrough proclaimed that the game takes around five hours to complete even while taking it slow.  However, other outlets have reported differently.  Many have also reported that the game is very cutscene and quick time event heavy.

The game follows Sir Galahad as he and The Order are tasked with defending England from werewolf-like creatures called half-breeds.  It takes place in an alternate timeline of history during the Victorian era.

The Order: 1886 will be available for purchase on Friday, February 20, 2015, exclusively for PlayStation 4.

My Opinion:

For a game like The Order: 1886 I would rather have a well-paced and well-written story than a meaty experience that drags on and on.  With that being said, I was still a bit apprehensive about paying 60 bucks for a five-hour game.  Fortunately, this news puts me at ease.

  1. I’m happy with 8 – 10 hours. The big question is that on easy, hard or a speed run? I can speed run through Batman on NES in half an hour, but as a kid it was days of playing that sucker. Heck Final Fantasy games used to brag about 99 hours…. that took me 20 hours with no guide to beat.
