Sony has delayed Ready at Dawn and Sony Santa Monica’s forthcoming action-adventure third-person shooter, The Order: 1886 from 2014 to 2015.
The developer released a new video video showing off their inspirations for the game – how History and mythology collide in the first behind the scenes video:
“We have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made when we first introduced the game.
As such, you can expect The Order: 1886 to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015,” said Ready at Dawn’s CEO and creative director, Ru Weerasuriya.
“Set in an alternate history London, where an old order of knights keep all of the world safe from half breed monsters, who are a combination of animal and man.
In the game’s history, around the seventh or eighth centuries a small number of humans took on bestial traits. The majority of humans feared these half breeds and war broke out.
Despite the humans outnumbering the half breeds, their animal strength gave them the upper hand in centuries of conflict. Centuries later, humanity finds new hope in King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
King Arthur and his like-minded knights take the fight to the half breeds, but Arthur soon realizes it’s a losing battle. Through a mysterious turn of fate The Knights discover Black Water, a mystical liquid that significantly extends their lifetimes and gives them remarkable healing abilities.
Despite this new advantage the half breeds continue to win battle after battle, until the industrial Revolution turns the tide. Inventors are far ahead of their time, inventing technologies such as thermal imaging, Zeppelins, and wireless communications.
New weapons belch electricity, ignite clouds of molten metal on top of enemies, and fulfill dual functions as Fragmentation grenades and proximity mines. By 1886, the war still goes on..”
The Order: 1886 is now planned for an early 2015 release.
