7w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Sid Shuman shared a PlayStation 4 video interview today showcasing Industrial Revolution: The Order: 1886 on PS4 below.

To quote: Recently, The Order: 1886 took the spotlight as Ready At Dawn revealed new details and first gameplay footage for the hotly anticipated 2014 PS4 exclusive.

In our new video interview, Creative Director and Ready At Dawn Co-founder Ru Weerasuriya revealed new insights into the game's combat, storyline, and graphical prowess.

The game's universe is a complex, heady brew steeped in myth and half-truths. Inspired by an array of divergent topics ranging from King Arthur's Round Table to the Industrial Revolution, The Order: 1886 paints a grim vision of 19th-century Victorian London.

With mankind locked in a centuries-old struggle against a race of monstrous Half-Breeds, The Order was formed to turn the tide using state-of-the-art weaponry and centuries of combat experience. Amidst the ever-present Half-Breed threat, The Order must also contend with a rebel network of humans who resent the aristocracy that created it.





The Order's first gameplay footage takes us to the London district of Whitechapel, a hive of scum and villainy that nonetheless...

9w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation Video Game Releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

The world has fallen under the tyrannical rule of Grand Master Meio. As people suffocate in his steely grip, Special A-Class Strider Hiryu is sent into the wintry winds of Kazakh City to assassinate the dictator. The arcade classic series returns with Strider, which launches for PS3 and PS4 this week.

Guide Hiryu through an expansive map and cut down Grand Master Meio's forces in a flurry of strikes. Using Hiryu's indestructible plasma Cypher - and a host of unlockable special moves - players can traverse the dark halls, harrowing heights, and gleaming towers of Kazakh City with speed and skill.

For those gamers hungry for a more old-fashioned quest, the PS4 beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn also launches this week. Saddle up a chocobo and ride through Eorzea in this staggering MMO from Square Enix.

Ready At Dawn: Building a New London for The Order: 1886 on PS4

34w ago - Ready At Dawn Studios CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya announced today that they are building a new London for The Order: 1886 on PS4.

To quote: When creating our alternate history in The Order: 1886, our goal was to make the environment as believable as possible while at the same time adding our own twist to real places.

With the release of our trailer back at E3, we hinted at our vision of an alternate London.

This Neo-Victorian London will seem familiar to everyone, however, advances in technology will take center stage in many ways as you navigate the city. One of the main examples is the advent of electricity throughout the city, well before its time.

Gas lamps are replaced by electric street lights. Everywhere you go, you can hear the hum of electricity running through the city.

The London subway system is present in our version of the world, but it's much more advanced than it was in real life. Certain sections of the subway system run above ground in between buildings throughout the city. Electric signs line the streets making some areas of London almost look like Times Square.

The other big change you will witness is in the skyline of London. Although the familiar sights of Big Ben, St. Paul's, and the Tower Bridge are present,...

42w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton divulged new The Order 1886 PlayStation 4 details today courtesy of Ready At Dawn in a PS4 interview below.

To quote: A quick list of things that invariably get my blood pumping at a PlayStation E3 press briefing:

1) Big, bold new IP reveals; 2) Hugely talented developers getting their first shot at realising an original vision; 3) Ravishingly stylish games set in my hometown of London.

Duly, the debut trailer for The Order: 1886 ticked all the boxes - yes, even the last one, making 2013 something of a banner year!

But while the first showing of Ready At Dawn's new creation was undoubtedly one of the highlights of this year's show, it also raised a fair few questions. Sure enough, I tracked down studio co-founder Ru Weerasuriya backstage in search of answers.

We'll be talking more about the game in the not too distant future, but in the meantime hopefully the following exchange will keep your interest piqued.

PlayStation.Blog: So, exactly what kind of game is The Order: 1886?

Ru Weerasuriya: The Order is a third person action adventure with shooting mechanics. It's very much story-based - it's a linear story-based game. We're trying to tell a story. It's what we call a filmic experience.
 

The Order: 1886 Brings the Victorian Era to PlayStation 4 / PS4

44w ago - CEO and Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya of Ready At Dawn Studios announced today that The Order: 1886 brings the Victorian Era to PlayStation 4 / PS4 video gaming with details below.

To quote: 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 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...
