One of the highlights from The Order: 1886‘s E3 trailer was the battle with a lycan. In this latest developer diary from Ready at Dawn, the team discusses what makes their half man/half wolf enemies different than other werewolves we’ve seen in the past.
What the team strove for was realism. They didn’t want the lycans to be scary looking monsters, they wanted them to look like creatures that could actually exist in the real world. They had to take anatomy into account as well as how a person can change from man to beast. The team also wanted to make sure to preserve the creature’s intelligence to make players afraid of an enemy that can size them up.
The Order: 1886 is slated to be released on February 20, 2015 exclusively on the PlayStation 4.
