One exclusive to PS4 is Sony Santa Monica’s and Ready At Dawn’s game which looks to take place in the early 1900s. But has a Steampunk feel due to the weapons. The Order: 1886 is the name of it, and it was rumored a while back.
Set in the Victorian era of London, The Order: 1886 is the first original IP created by Ready At Dawn, and it takes place in an alternate history where technological advances take center stage in a battle against a powerful and ancient foe.
The game takes place nearly forty years after the Industrial Revolution, but unlike the actual one, the one in the game stems from mankind’s “desire to prevail in a centuries-old war.”

The gameplay will also be seamless, as it there won’t be “any visual discrepancies or breaks in continuity between gameplay and cinematic.”
