Behold, the first video game of this modern generation to allow you to play as the king of nerds, Nikola Tesla. Serbian American inventor, creator of the Tesla coil and first radio remote control vehicle, and hero to electrical and mechanical engineers of all kinds – here Nikola Tesla returns to action in the year 1886, just in time to take part in the video game “The Order: 1886.”
Tesla would have been 30 years old, just 4 years younger than the image above shows him to be. That photo was taken in the year 1890 by one Napoleon Sarony who, as far as we know, will not be playing a part in this game.
Above you’re seeing some concept art for the game (to the left, not the right). The trailer here, on the other hand, shows some awesome gameplay action that’ll make its way into the final release.
This game will allow “history and myth to collide” with the “Knights of The Order” including Galahad, a fellow you’ll be controlling throughout most of the story. Victorian-Era London is the place, and both steampunk-like weapons and ancient evil are out in front of you.
This game will be released on the 20th of February, 2015. Have a peek at the timeline below for additional details as this game continues to turn into one of the more interesting PS4 exclusives of this release wave.
