Fascinating The Order: 1886 developer interview talks Welsh legends and evolutionary offshoots

Written by: / / No Comments


Following a long period of silence, details regarding Ready at Dawn’s upcoming PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886 have been flowing thick and fast after the game was reintroduced via a jaw-dropping gameplay trailer earlier this month.

In a new developer interview Creative Director Ru Weerasuriya reveals that the game’s plot and setting is inspired by a variety of myths and historical elements, ranging from the original Welsh legend that inspired the Knights of the Round Table myth to the Industrial Revolution that largely characterised 19th-century Victorian London. The Order: 1886’s action arises from the conflict between an order of knights and a monstrous offshoot of human evolution known as the Half-Breeds. Apart from these violent creatures, The Order will also have to contend with a rebel army of humans who resent the dominant social class.

Here’s the developer interview:

The Order: 1886 is expected to be released sometime later this year. Head over here for El33tonline’s previous coverage of this intriguing action adventure from Ready at Dawn.
