So apparently Nicola Tesla is the ‘Q’ of The Order in Ready at Dawn’s upcoming PS4 exclusive. Oh, and also- it still looks pretty darn amazing.
I didn’t know that Tesla was such an integral part of The Order, but it’s certainly pretty neat that he is. For those who don’t know, Nicola Tesla is widely credited as one of the luminaries (pardon the pun) of the electrical age. He was also a brilliant inventor, may or may not have been the target of a political smear campaign (possibly led by Thomas Edison) to discredit him, and died nearly penniless. Pretty sad story actually.
In The Order: 1886 though, he looks to be going a fair shade better as he supplies the mysterious heroes of the game with their armaments. And what an armory it looks to be too as you’ll get to use automatic weapons and rocket launchers right alongside the rifles and pistols that you probably more closely associate with the vintage. It’s Steampunk alright, but there appears to be a lot more going on in The Order with shades of horror and maybe a little science fiction too.
One of the biggest titles of next year? Absolutely. The Order: 1886 is scheduled to arrive exclusively on the PS4 on February 20th, 2015.
