This week, Ready At Dawn’s supernatural shooter The Order: 1886 hits Australian retailers on February 20. The game is set in a steampunk Victorian era and revolves around an order of knights who fight to protect the world from half-breed werewolves.
Weapons in the game are part based on real, Victorian-era technology, part science-fiction. Ready At Dawn has confirmed that inventor Nikola Tesla will appear in the game. If you think the game looks pretty visually impressive, Ready At Dawn studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya told GameSpot in an interview that the game was built to showcase the power of the PlayStation 4.
The Order: 1886 has been in development for three and half years. For our early impressions of the game, specifically with regards to its gameplay, check out editor Mark Walton’s preview.
