The Order 1886 delayed to 2015

Ready at Dawn's PS4 exclusive pushed back to add extra layers of polish

Sony has delayed The Order 1886 from its previously planned 2014 launch window to 2015.

Ready at Dawn and The Order creative director Ru Weerasuriya told PS Blog: "We have decided to spend some extra time to deliver on the promise we made when we first introduced the game. As such, you can expect The Order: 1886 to come exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in early 2015."

Revealed at E3 2013, the PS4 game is set in an alternate history that mixes Victorian-era London with relatively modern technologies and mythological monsters. See how history and mythology collide in the new behind the scenes trailer below.

As part of a newly published The Order 1886 interview, game director Jan told CVG he expects the title to "raise some eyebrows" when it launches next year.

CVG's newly published The Order 1886 preview concludes: "We saw an interesting gun and the ability to explore environments during predefined downtimes, but beyond that the demo showcased little more than the heavily Gears of War influenced cover-based shooting that we've seen in debut gameplay videos.

"Is Ready At Dawn holding back on us? Is it too early to be demanding bigger fireworks? Will it even matter? So impressive are the visuals of The Order 1886 that its technical prowess alone may justify dropping £50/$60. But we're really hoping that eye candy won't be its sole selling point."
