A story trailer released for the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive, The Order: 1886, gives us a highlight of the game’s intriguing storyline and plot.
Set in an alternate Victorian London, The Order: 1886 banks on an ancient war between an order of knights and half-breeds (half man – half animal). For centuries both sides have been trying to overtake each other, with the knights also having to make sure that the outside world is kept in the dark about this old threat.
The half-breeds are lower in numbers but have exceptional strength and agility. The knights on the other hand have utilized the coming of the industrial revolution to arm themselves with new inventions and technologies.
The Order: 1886 is visually a stunning creation for the PlayStation 4. It’s gameplay routines though is where some are extremely worried. Those who have managed to play the game (and this is a small circle at that) have reported that the game takes a dive when it comes to combat. Apparently, the railed shooting feels dead and makes it a title that has tried hard to copy off cues from Gears of War and failed.
The Order: 1886 releases for the PlayStation 4 on February 20. We’ll know soon enough if this third-person shooter has managed to win people’s hearts or not.
