New Story And Setting Details Found For The Order: 1886

Although it isn't as important to some, the story, characters and background of a game are crucial to those who appreciate such elements.

And that's why it's interesting to learn a bit more about The Order: 1886. As reported by DualShockers, a new Japanese cinematic trailer features several new pieces of information. Here are a few of the highlights; click the link to read 'em all:

-- Suddenly, mutations appeared in the human genetic code. While the change wasn’t immediately visible, some began to show traits similar to beasts. This turned them into a species different from humanity, and marked the birth of the half-breed (half man, half beast).

-- Although mankind had the advantage in sheer numbers, it was inferior to the half breed because of their resilience and overwhelming regenerative powers.

-- At last, after a few centuries passed, humanity is presented with a chance to retaliate. Brave men and women vowed to devote their life to the war against the half-breed and became knights. Those knights were named “The Order."

-- If a knight is killed, a new successor to his name appears, and throws himself into battle on behalf of Humanity.

-- In the London of 19th Century, the conflict between mankind and the half-breed continued, even in the terrible district of Whitechapel, one of the many districts that will be remembered by posterity. This area has become a major turning point in the battle over the years.

--The development of science and the industrial revolution has become a mighty assets for the human race.

-- In this time, when the threat of the half-breed begins to decline, a new threat attacks the knights: A full-scale insurrection in the British Empire. Suffering the poverty brought by the industrial revolution and the disparity between classes, angry citizens take arms and rebel.

It sounds to me like there are branching story patterns here, and elements of history, mythology, politics and sociology will all be included. I'd be interested to see how it plays out, and how much emphasis is placed on story as opposed to action. We do know it'll be a linear adventure, but that doesn't necessarily mean the story will be well written and well presented. Let's just cross our fingers and hope.

Sounds like Resistance to me. I look to see how this develops. I'm also glad they're giving God of War a break.

Kudos for being a third person action adventure and not first person.

Ok.. somewhat similar... the chimera took humans to turn them into chimeran soldiers. Almost the same thing.

This game couldn't possibly get any better...

Or could it?

The possibilities twist my mind in unnatural ways! :)

good Dualshockers missionary work Ben. I've added them to my favorites. They post stories about Tecmo Koei few others do so I've been converted.

Sounds good and interesting. They are doing what any smart person would in the industry. To create and interesting and compelling story, you need a back story that shows the designers, programmers, and others how the world evolved in to the game they will be making.

Sounds good. Wonder if they are fans of the TV series GRIMM.

This game could end up being the reason I pick up the PS4 next summer or fall.

Keep playing!

I was thinking of Grimm when I was reading this. Sounds really interesting and a few of these characters are based off of real people. Also it looks like some of them are actually still alive even though they should have died decades ago.

The suspense is killing me, I really want this to go well for RaD.

I don't know what it is about the momentum behind this title since we've never seen any gameplay but I'm too stoked to turn back now. It may be my imagination playing around with the limited information.

Every time I hear more about The Order, it seems to get better. That being said, there have been a lot of games that have promised a deep and intricate backstory, only for it to play almost no role within the actual game, aside from maybe using a mention of it as a frame in the opening cinematic. To me, this is looking ever more as though it could be the PS4's first killer app.

nice to get some story details, and a understanding of who the enemys are.
this is probably my most anticipated game for next year, just reading all the little intricate details is really amazing.
the cover story gameinformer had for instance they were detailing how much work went into designing the weapons, making them look from the period, but also keeping with the futuristic technology tone of the game.
if they put that much intricacy, thought and detail into the design of the weapons, i cant wait to see what the bigger more important aspects of the game are like!
they really amazed with CoO and GoS on the psp, so i cant wait to see what they can do with a much more powerful machine!
