Sony isn’t wasting any time ushering in a new generation of games that will help define its PlayStation 4 console.  One of those games comes to us from Ready At Dawn Studios, the team that did magnificent work on the God of War games for PlayStation Portable.

The new title is called The Order: 1886, and it’s an alternative history action game where you lead a squad of weapon-carrying warriors as they take on vicious beasts.  The trailer didn’t feature any gameplay, but does set up the in-game plot quite nicely, with a quartet of heavily armored soldiers using guns and other weapons to get the point across.  The game has a classic action vibe to it, and seamlessly blends old-school London times with new elements, such as flying zeppelins.

There’s no word on release date, but it’s expected sometime in 2014.  We’ll have more details as soon as we get them.
