With the gaming industry on loudspeaker, it was inevitable that some news would slip through the net. Unfortunately for PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886, the title’s 20th February release date appears to have been drowned out by Sony’s wealth of other big reveals. Buried at the bottom of a PlayStation Blog post, creative director Ru Weerasuriya confirmed the global launch day, sharing a little intel on pre-order bonuses.
Those that register their interest in the alternate history escapade in Europe or North America will receive the Knight’s Arsenal Pack, which comprises two unique costumes for protagonist Galahad to sport, as well as a couple of weapon variants. Moreover, in North America, you’ll be able to select from two limited edition sets, each featuring different bits and pieces of content.
The first option – dubbed the humble ‘Collector’s Edition’ – will retail for $79.99, and will feature a 7” statue of the aforementioned hero peering from behind cover, a collectible steelbook, some stickers, a soundtrack, and a bunch of behind-the-scenes video footage. Meanwhile, the more expensive ‘Premium Edition’ will come with all of the above for $149.99, except it’ll include a larger statue and an art book containing a secret compartment for your very own Blackwater Vial.
Over in Europe, the solitary premium package option will include the abovementioned pendant, as well as woven coat of arms patches for Isabeau and Galahad, a bunch of postcards contained in a wax sealed envelope, and some stickers. No word on a price for that set just yet, but we’ll keep you updated. Are you tempted by any of these options? Stroke your facial hair in the comments section below.
