  • Nikola Tesla Joins The Order: 1886

    There's a new trailer and some new information out of gamescom today for The Order: 1886 by Ready at Dawn. First up, let's take a look at that new gameplay trailer.


    And now, let's take a look at how Nikola Tesla factors in to the game and its story.


    Tesla not only brings with him real-world history but also the genius of his inventions that are the foundation of many of the weapons and devices you will experience in the game, including the Arc Gun and the Thermite Rifle. The inclusion of Tesla is a great example of how we have integrated real figures into our fiction to create an original universe.

    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.

    19th century London will serve as the backdrop to our story, from the streets of Whitechapel to the docks of Blackwall Yard, and all the way to the halls of the Palace of Westminster where more mysteries will be revealed.
