Ready at Dawn Drops Details on The Order: 1886′s London
Supernatural action game The Order: 1886 takes place in a Neo-Victorian London, but we haven’t seen much of it beyond the original announcement trailer. Though we still don’t have new footage, Ready at Dawn just dropped some knowledge about the the alternate version of our world.
In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Ru Weerasuriya, CEO and Creative Director, Ready At Dawn Studios talked about the different Londons. One of the biggest changes between our London in 1886 and that of the Order’s is the introduction of electricity well ahead of time. This also allows for a more robust and developed subway system, which now runs above ground and between buildings in some places.
The skyline will also look dramatically different. The presence of iconic landmarks like Big Ben and the Tower Bridge will still be felt, but there are new watchtowers throughout the city. Combined with the towers, dirigibles called Sentinels will roam the skies, keeping an eye on the city below. London in The Order isn’t what it seems, and these subtle changes will serve as a reminder that there’s something amiss in this version of London in 1886.
