This new trailer for The Order: 1886 shows some unexpectedly gib-tastic gunplay: exploding heads, arms blown off, a leg stripped away at the knee by a shotgun. There’s a lot of ouch.

I played the most recent build of it at the end of last year, and while some of the guns are thunderous, I don’t remember the bad guys coming apart in quite the same way they do here. There’s a rating at the bottom of the video that states this is mature, containing “Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Nudity, Sexual Content, Strong Language”. It suggests we might be getting a much more violent game than previously expected.

This new trailer also sets the scene a bit more, with a potted rush through characters, motivations and action. Turns out Sir Galahad is quite the bad boy of immortal religious monster police. Who knew?
