Ready at Dawn has released their third behind the scenes video, highlighting the development of The Order: 1886‘s creative weaponry.
The video delves into the studios meticulous approach to providing a selection of gadgets that feel inspired and somewhat probable, despite their fantastical elements, without feeling contrived. There is interesting bits about thermite bullets that can be lit with a flair to explode that is actually based on real technology and even how they tried to create a sort of Victorian era AK-47.
Tesla’s influence on the game is probably the most interesting, with weapons that feel some what hacked together from the stocks of rifles and twisted into new and deadly ways. The more cutting edge the weapons become, the more they also borderline on being barely safe prototypes that can actually feel dangerous to the user. It’s an approach that I feel works quite well, and is fascinating to watch come together through incredible art direction and masterful design.
You can check out the whole five minute clip below and let me know what your favorite weapon is in the comment section below. The Order: 1886 is set to release on PS4 February 20th, 2015.
