As part of the Japanese reveal of Ready at Dawn’s PS4 exclusive The Order 1886 Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asian released some new tidbits of information on the Knights that will serve as protagonists of the game:
The Knights are part of the elite Order that protects the human race. It was founded in order to fight the “enemy” that threatened mankind over the centuries. It’s said that it’s not clear when and how it was formed, but it existed for a longer time than the British Empire itself.
The members of the Order hold great authority in the British Empire. It’s not uncommon to see the Knights wearing the most advanced custom-made equipment during investigations of crime scenes involving the “enemy.” In addition to that, all the members of the Order have pledged absolute loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen of the British Empire. It’s also said that they all share a “common secret.”
What will this “common secret” be? We have no way to know for now, but the backstory of the game seems to be very deep and intricate, so I’m quite sure we can expect a lot of plot twists and surprises when we’ll finally get to play it.
While The Order: 1886 doesn’t have a firm release window, it’s rumored to come out on 2014. Of course we’ll keep you updated if any further information will emerge. In the meanwhile you can check out the previously released details on the story here.
