PS4 exclusive, The Order: 1886, is a special entity for Sony and this is proved by the fact that Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia have unveiled a Japanese trailer for the game which puts light on the premise of the game.
Someone on the internet who apparently knows Japanese and loves the gaming community has translated the dialogues from the trailer, revealing a host of new details in the process. You can take a look below.
Here is the full translation for you in quotes below.
“It is said that everything began around the 7th or 8th century. Suddenly mutations appeared in the human genetic code. While the change wasn’t immediately visible, some began to show traits similar to beasts. This turned them into a species different from humanity, and marked the birth of the half-breed (half man, half beast). Over time the people started to call the half-breed with the names of the monsters of legend. Conflict and confrontation against the monster has upset the history of mankind. Although mankind had the advantage in sheer numbers, it was inferior to the half-breed because of their resilience and overwhelming regenerative powers. At last, after a few centuries passed, humanity is presented with a chance to retaliate. Brave men and women vowed to devote their life to the war against the half-breed and became knights. Those knights were named “the Order”
Since then, over the centuries, many knights lost their lives in battle, but the Order never perished. If a knight is killed, a new successor to his name appears, and throws himself into battle on behalf of Humanity. In the London of 19th Century the conflict between mankind and the half-breed continued, even in the terrible district of White Chapel, one of the many districts that will be remembered by the posterity. This area has become a major turning point in the battle over the years. The development of science and the industrial revolution has become a mighty assets for the human race. Enormous airships patrol the sky of London, and at times they are at anchor at enormous mooring towers to monitor the city center. The railway powered by electricity has become the blood flow of the city, connecting each district. With their technology, humanity has the advantage over the half-breed for the first time.
In this time, when the threat of the half-breed begins to decline, a new threat attacks the knights: A full-scale insurrection in the British Empire. Suffering the poverty brought by the industrial revolution and the disparity between classes, angry citizens take arms and rebel.
And there’s more than those two “enemies” to cause trouble for the knights…”
Also more information regarding the Knights in the game were revealed –
“The Knights are part of the elite Order that protects the human race. It was founded in order to fight the “enemy” that threatened mankind over the centuries. It’s said that it’s not clear when and how it was formed, but it existed for a longer time than the British Empire itself.
The members of the Order hold great authority in the British Empire. It’s not uncommon to see the Knights wearing the most advanced custom-made equipment during investigations of crime scenes involving the “enemy.” In addition to that, all the members of the Order have pledged absolute loyalty to Her Majesty the Queen of the British Empire. It’s also said that they all share a “common secret.”
The plot of the game is indeed looking intriguing and it will be interesting to play as Knights in the game, as they are the main protagonist. We’ll keep you updated on more of this Ready at Dawn’s next epic.
