PlayStation owners looking to get their hands on Ready At Dawn’s ‘The Order: 1886’ this year will have to wait, as the game has been delayed until early next year.
This news comes from a PlayStation blog post offering a behind the scenes look into the game’s mythology and what inspired the developers. Details are also offered as to why fans will now have to wait a bit longer.
“As we look to bring this experience to the players, we have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made when we first introduced the game,” it reads. “As such, you can expect The Order: 1886 to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015.”
While delays are disappointing to hear, one must remember that more development time can result in a more polished and overall better experience. Yes, yes I am fully aware of Duke Nukem Forever and that Aliens game but the Ready At Dawn team seem determined to deliver on their promise, so hopefully it all turns out great in the end.
It is not all sour news mind you, as the blog does detail some interesting info regarding game; offering insight to its plot and the origin of the Order.
“In the days of King Arthur, mankind is on the losing side of a war for dominion and supremacy against the Half-Breeds. The King assembles a group of noble men to stand in defense of their brethren and thus, the Knights of the Round Table are born.”
“The Knights, now known only as The Order, endure through the centuries bringing the war to a status quo. With the Industrial Revolution, technology gives them the upper hand and a time of uncomfortable peace settles in the Kingdom and the Commonwealth, our version of Pax Britannia. But this peace brings on a new opponent. The very people The Order had sworn to protect take up arms, as the Rebellion is formed in the streets of London. This new battle ravages the street of 1886 London, as both rebels and Knights fight each other to the death.”
Additionally, the blog also covers the mysterious Blackwater which players got a brief glimpse of its use in the previous gameplay video.
“Beyond technology, the Knights have relied on one element they have used for centuries: the Blackwater. While in combat, they are able to use it to heal from otherwise deadly wounds. With centuries of use, the Blackwater has imbued the Knights with an inhuman longevity as well as mental and physical abilities they can use in combat, a state they call Blacksight. Using Blacksight, Galahad enters into a heightened state allowing him to focus his skills and execute precise attacks.”
Personally it all sounds interesting and I can’t wait until Ready At Dawn gives us a look at more of the game’s supernatural elements. Hopefully we will see something at this E3 in a few weeks. The devs have confirmed the game will be at this year’s much anticipated event. Until then take a look at the new behind the scenes video.
