Sony has been positioning Ready At Dawn’s The Order: 1886 as this Fall’s major PS4 exclusive. But after today’s delay, it looks like the consolemaker will have to put together a new battle plan. In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Ready At Dawn’s Creative Director, Ru Weerasuriya, confirmed that The Order: 1886’s release has been pushed back to early 2015.
We’ll get our next big taste of The Order: 1886 as this year’s E3 Expo, but until then, Weerasuriya and some of the other developers got together to give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s world in a new developer diary. “Fusing History & Mythology” examines how the Ready At Dawn team has reshaped Victorian London into a retro-futuristic city with advanced weaponry, magic, zeppelins, and werewolf-like creatures known as Half-Breeds. But I think the most interesting thing is how much of the time and the town that went unchanged.
Ready At Dawn also recently released a new gameplay video of The Order: 1886 showcasing Galahad’s Thermite rifle and the “heightened state” and focused abilities of the game’s Blacksight mechanic.
