The below video is longer but choppy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

^Japanese trailer

 

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…

^ Intriguing

 

You'll be playing as Galahad, the bearded man from the trailer. The Order has been fighting against the shadowy monsters for a millennium, but the advent of the Industrial Revolution created new weapons for the organization to use. That said, the story takes place in an alternate version of the Industrial Revolution, and Ready at Dawn isn't shy about mixing together anachronistic elements like advanced weaponry and zeppelins. Real people will make an appearance as well, though Ready at Dawn co-founder Ru Weerasuriya was reportedly cagey when asked point-blank if Jack the Ripper would come into play.

 

"We used [the Industrial Revolution] as a catalyst for something else, this war that was going on for a long time was stagnating," Weerasuriya said. "As a matter of fact, humans were losing the war for a long time. And the Industrial Revolution allows man to basically get weaponry that finally puts the advantage in their hands."

 

While this game takes place in London, he points out that "the IP is broad." That would seem to indicate that potential future games could take place in other places, during the same time period.

 

It is a third-person shooter and is described as a linear, story-driven adventure with a general "filmic" presentation.

 

Weerasuriya replied: "The overall feel – that filmic experience… the one thing we brought to this is something people are accustomed to but usually can’t tell. When you watch a movie you don’t question what lens is being used. You don’t question why there is grain on the film or why there’s a certain lighting. Those are things we’ve been accustomed to seeing for 30 years. So when it’s missing we usually go 'Wait, something is wrong with this image.'

 

"With this game we replicated a lot of physical attributes. We have true lens distortion. We built physical lenses into our engine so we could get something where people will look it and not be totally disconnected. Games have a tendency sometimes to be too clean and crisp. We thrive in the dirt. We just love the fact that it feels dirty. It’s filmed in a very realistic way."

 

It doesn't feature an exact 1:1 map of the real city, but the team is attempting to "stay as true to possible to it."

Possibly worth checking out.

Have to wait and see if they release more trailers, in the next few months.

I really like what they showed. The theme looks great. Could possibly be 4 player co-op... Other than that, not much detail. Looking forward to hearing more.

when I saw this trailer at the E3 Sony Press Conference it said Santa Monica and after that 'created and developed by Ready at Dawn', so what I'm wondering, who is really developing this? both studio's? or only Ready at Dawn? I hope only Ready at Dawn cause that would mean that Santa Monica is also working on a nice PS4 exclusive, the more the better :smileytongue:

I'm definitely looking forward to this game.  At first, I was worried it was another zombie game; however, it looks like werewolves, so I'm intrigued.  Planning to pick this up as soon as its available.
