It's been a long time since we've heard from Ready at Dawn, developers of the critically acclaimed God of War: Chains of Olympus for PSP. Apparently, they've been hard at work on a PS4 exclusive. In collaboration with Sony Santa Monica Studios, The Order: 1886 is an action game set in a gorgeously-rendered steampunk London.
Not everyone is happy, though. Alice told us: "I live in Whitechapel it's not like that at all!"
The PlayStation.Blog has more details on Ready at Dawn's new IP:
With The Order: 1886, we introduce players to a unique vision of Victorian-era London, an alternate history where technological advances take center stage in a battle against a powerful and ancient foe. The game takes place nearly forty 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.
In the game, you are a knight, a member of an ancient order, and you will take center stage in this fight for mankind’s survival. As the game takes place in an alternate history, you will be able to interact with real-world historical characters who will aid you in your quest. You will see and navigate real places. You will not only be a witness, but have a hand in real events that have unfolded.
And here's what it looks like, running real-time on PS4:
