God of War dev reveals PS4 game The Order: 1886

Ready at Dawn unveils The Order: 1886 at Sony E3 media briefing.

The next game from God of War PSP developer Ready at Dawn has been revealed as PlayStation 4 action-shooter The Order: 1886.

A trailer for the game was shown during Sony's E3 media briefing tonight. The video was set up by voice-over that teased the following:

"It is a new world for us, for all of us; an age of scientific marvels," a voice said. "And yet, underneath the brass and steel the old struggle endures."

The game is set 40 years after the Industrial Revolution. Gamers play as a knight, a member of an ancient order, and must fight for humankind's survival.

"You will see and navigate real places. You will not only be a witness, but have a hand in real events that have unfolded," reads the game's description.

Sony trademarked The Order: 1886 in April.

More to come...

Sounds like the Assassin and Templar orders except with a steampunk twist.

I'm amazed that people complain about the steampunk genre setting of this game (albiet they don't realize it's called steampunk) yet no one complained about Bioshock. It is a genre in fact called "steampunk" so people stop hating on it for that.

They had me at steampunk, to be honest...but I will be waiting to see some game-play before committing, the trailer (for me) was quite thrilling but it was just a movie clip, so, it's a wait and see for me.

Nowadays at E3 also they are not showing gameplay.Just trailers.Why the hell do you have a stupid announcement event for a game and show the gameplay on another seperate event

I sometimes mixed this one with  Ubisoft's 1666, but now that game is put on indefinite hold. Sad, we need more games with historical dates containing the number 6 :P.

hmm... at first it was interesting... then they started showing guns that blatantly did not fit the time period. Slow-mo grenade launcher and some kind of neon glowing thing? This is going to be a hard sell for me.

This is a big move for Ready at Dawn, good luck guys. I bought all your handheld games, I hope your first major new IP and console game does well.

@gokulgamer The whole point of a trailer is to introduce an audience to your product in a short and entertaining manner. Of course they show trailers at conferences.

@Michael83917 It's called fiction, my friend. Don't try finding logic in it. Magic isn't real and most of the things you see in science fiction isn't. Well, at least not yet. But you don't see people complaining about Harry Potter or Star Trek.

Anyway, the genre is called "steampunk." Read up on it.

@Michael83917 I just couldn't understand how they had that high-tech electric gun yet still couldn't figure out how to make a freaking automobile.  Model-T people it's not hard!!!

@SolidTy I hope so 2. Cant wait to see Santa Monica's first game for PS4.

@thekingofirony It looks like a lot of things as did Dishonored. It's just the same way Deus Ex looks like a lot of things in the cyberpunk genre and how any school of magic will make anyone think of Harry Potter. It's just a setting and many works of fiction are allowed to share similar settings.

@riclyrex That be cool, cave men fighting dinosaurs with hi-tech guns and other enemy cave men whom ride the dinosaurs. (yes I know that's an anachronism)
... yeah that sounds awesome!

explanation for how cave men whom have only recently developed stone tools and the creation of fire?
... ALIENS! (crash landing)

name of genre: stone(r)-punk!

@riclyrex It's called steampunk, and no one complained when Bioshock Infinite had this setting.
