Crafting the world and visuals of The Order: 1886 has been a long and hard fought labor of love from the art and creative team at Ready At Dawn Studios, and it is our great pleasure to now be able to share some of the massive trove of visual development and production art that we have brought to life along the way.
Our last showing at PlayStation Experience was amazing, and a great opportunity to meet some of you. First and foremost, we wanted to thank you for all your support. It’s only a couple of months until the launch of our game and we’re really looking forward to having everyone play The Order: 1886.
1886 is a time of strife in our alternate version of Victorian Era London. Life for the commoners may seem monotonous with people, both rich and poor, going about their daily business. All the while, a threat to their very existence continues to lurk in the dark, a threat that the Knights of the Order have kept at bay for centuries.
The Order’s first gameplay footage takes us to the London district of Whitechapel, a hive of scum and villainy that nonetheless looks sumptuous thanks to the game’s rich, saturated environment lighting. Galahad, Lafayette and the rest of The Order also look stunning, with agonizingly detailed costumes and eerily lifelike facial details that rival the pre-rendered CG cutscenes seen in many other games.
Over the past few months, we shared with you our vision of a Neo-Victorian London in The Order: 1886, an alternate version of human history filled with mystery and advances in technology that take center stage in an age-old war. This conflict that started centuries ago pitted mankind against half-breeds in a battle for survival. This became the catalyst for the noblest warriors of their time to come together in an alliance, an Order that waged war and held the line for hundreds of years.
Ready at Dawn are powering away on The Order: 1886 and wanted to ignite a heavy “stache” of Movember fun with you. If you didn’t already know, Sir Galahad, the gallant hero and leader of The Order, sports a legendary ‘stache of his own. We call it “The Galahad.”
This Movember, we want to challenge you to grow The Galahad in support of cancer research… and just plain awesomeness.
