The Order: 1886‘s prolific alternate reality website added more content today, but from the sound of it, it could be the last, as the two “bloggers” pass the torch to the players.

The first entry includes three rather fascinating audio recordings from wax cylinders:

The second entry, included an invite to uncover the secrets behind the Order:

I’ve done all I can. I’ve released everything I’ve got. Ian is still gone, god knows where… and I feel like I need to get out of here for a while myself. It’s up to you now – I know that we’ve only scratched the surface. There’s so much more going on here. Continue this work. Uncover the secrets behind The Order. What you discover may change the world.

The third entry is where things get really interesting. Again, don’t read further if you want to decipher the enigma yourself:

Strangest thing – I just got an email from Ian… appears to have been set to send more than 3 weeks ago. It doesn’t make much sense. What does it mean? Was he losing his mind? Help me figure this out – please.

NeoGAF user BraXzy broke the complex code, and, together with the three pieces included in previous codes, he found out the address notthehistoryyouknownewtruth@gmail.com.

User Juan29.zapata sent a mail to the address, and received a message back from “Ian,” telling him that he cracked the code and that he (Ian) has been chasing for something that will blow this wide open. And that he might need his help, asking for a location.

Various users tried sending in their mailing address in response, and we’ll have to wait and see what this will lead to.  Looks like there’s still something to be unveiled before we get our hands on the game.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
