Along with a new trailer from Ready at Dawn, the studio have also revealed that the “Mad Scientist” Nikola Tesla will be a pivotal character in their upcoming title The Order 1886. Tesla brings with him real-world history and his inventions which are the foundation of the weapons and devices players will use in the game, like Arc Gun and the Thermite Rifle.
Here’s the plot synopsis for the game:
“Having moved to the United States in 1884, Tesla works in the company of some of the most influential people of the time on the New Continent, but the young inventor catches the interest of The Order and is convinced to return to Europe and join the group as their chief scientist.”
“He soon proves to be an invaluable asset and creates some of the most advanced weaponry known to man. But with great power comes great responsibility… and in the wrong hands, these weapons may prove to be as much a threat as an advantage.”
The Order 1886 comes exclusively to the PlayStation 4 on the 20th February. For more information, check out the PlayStation Blog.
