It’s only a few more months until The Order: 1886 is released and the team here at Ready At Dawn is looking forward to having everyone finally play the game. Before that happens, we’re making a quick trip to Las Vegas this weekend to show another glimpse of the game at the PlayStation Experience before the game hits the streets on February 20th, 2015.
In the past year, we’ve revealed our version of Victorian Era London and some of the protagonists in the game. We’ve shown you a range of different gameplay mechanics. We’ve showcased our technology, our physics system and the graphical quality of the game.
We’re at PlayStation Experience to reveal a very different moment in the game than what you’ve seen previously; the chapter we’re showcasing is an infiltration mission inside the airship Agamemnon. Galahad, Perceval, Igraine and Lafayette are on a mission to stop a rebel assassination plot against a government leader. From the first moments—rappelling down the side of an airship with a grand vista of London around you—to an all-out gun battle in the ship’s kitchens, this chapter showcases the diversity of gameplay that we have talked about in the past.
We’re not only thrilled to show this new part of The Order: 1886 at The Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience Keynote, but we’re also happy to announce that everyone coming here to Vegas will have a chance to get their hands on a brand new demo on the show floor, that not only includes what we’ve already shown but an extended gameplay portion of this chapter.
We‘ll also be joining a few fellow developers for two PlayStation Experience panels: “Music Magic: How Your Favorite Game Soundtracks are Made” featuring Jason Graves and “Storytelling in Video Games” with Neil Druckmann, Tim Schafer and yours truly, amongst others. Looking forward to seeing you all on the show floor…
