Tell me more! The Order:1886

There was a trailer at the Sony press conference.  That’s almost all we know about the game, but I’m so desperate for more information about The Order: 1886!

Ready at Dawn, the studio behind PSP releases of God of War, is finally emerging from the handheld world and onto the PS4.  Their new IP looks amazing, I just wish that we knew more about it.  But here’s what we know so far.

The Order: 1886 takes place in an alternate version of history, following the Industrial Revolution (that happened differently).  The world industrialized due to a constant war – so weapons are high-tech and we see zeppelins flying yet people still travel by horse and carriage.

I’m particularly intrigued by the steam punk look of the whole thing – although we’re not supposed to call it that because developers didn’t want it to feel too futuristic.  I’m in love with the aesthetic and hope that the game play lives up to it.  Apparently, the scale of the project was impossible to move forward on, until the PS4 dev kits were delivered.  I’m curious to see what the next-gen technology was able to offer to make this game achievable.

Here is the trailer, let me know what you think.
