This project has been a long time coming and I’m proud today that we finally have a chance to give you a first look into our new game, The Order: 1886. This is the first original IP created by Ready At Dawn and the game is targeted exclusively for the PlayStation 4.
The genesis of this project happened many years ago but it was not until 2010 when hearing of the upcoming PS4 that we, as a studio, decided it was time for us to bring this IP to life. We saw that the platform could finally give us the potential needed to achieve the vision we had for this game.
With The Order: 1886, we introduce players to a unique vision of Victorian-Era London, an alternate history where technological advances take centre stage in a battle against a powerful and ancient foe. The game takes place nearly 40 years after the Industrial Revolution. But unlike in real history, our Industrial Revolution stems from mankind’s desire to prevail in a centuries-old war. The advances in technology invented by some of the foremost minds of the time, give man an opportunity to take the upper-hand for the first time in their struggle.
