The Order: 1886 Box Art

This game was released on February 20, 2015 and is no longer available to pre-order. Any incentives that were offered are listed below.

The Order: 1886 is a third-person action-adventure game developed by Ready at Dawn and published by Sony exclusively for their PS4 platform. Set in an alternate version of the Victorian-era London, it follows the titular Order, whose job it is to hunt down dangerous Half-Breeds such as Lycans. Empowered by a mystical substance called Blackwater and equipped with deadly weapons made possible thanks to the Industrial Revolution, the long-lived warriors of the Order are the only ones who can protect humanity against the Half-Breed threat.

The Order: 1886 features a “filmic” look achieved by using subtle film grain, chromatic aberration, and other effects. According to the developers, the 1920×800 resolution and 30 frame rate were also chosen for aesthetic reasons, although one could speculate that the costly particle effects and the high visual fidelity of the game are to blame.
