It’s a good thing that The Order: 1886’s premise is so strong, because Sony’s done a pretty atrocious job of selling Ready at Dawn’s inaugural PlayStation 4 project so far. This brand new video produced by Sony Japan attempts to spoof a BBC News broadcast – but ends up looking like a high school student’s media studies coursework instead.
We get what the platform holder’s going for here, but the execution is awful. For starters, no Brit that we’ve ever met talks like that scientist. Secondly, the events in the forthcoming historical foray seem pretty cataclysmic – why wouldn’t the media from the same universe be aware of the existence of Lycans a mere 100 years later? Terrible.
