Ready At Dawn, the developer behind The Order: 1886 has announced it’s next game and they describe it as a “third-person smash ‘em arena combat game”. It will be named De-formers and looks like Ready At Dawn’s attempt at a new and unique game to blow us away and sell like wildfire, as in recent times that seems to have been a solid tactic for some developers. However, even after just the 30 second reveal trailer there has only really been disappointment amongst fans so far.
De-formers is a game where you will play as ‘forms’ that presumably have different roles in the fights, some more defensive and some more offensive. On top of this the Forms can consume objects in the world to become more powerful, this does include the remains of your fallen foes.
The Order: 1886 was admittedly not well made and severely lacking in content, however the premise was good and that can’t be denied as it captured the interests of many people. Perhaps Ready At Dawn should have invested their time in making another ‘The Order’ game by building on the shortcomings of the first. It’s reveal may have been received better then De-formers. Check out the reveal trailer below and then let us know what you think about Ready At Dawn’s new title down in the comments.
Also worth noting is that we’ve heard a rumour Ready At Dawn is in pre-production on a new console AAA title, if this is true then perhaps De-formers is just to raise some revenue for the next big game?
