PS4 Exclusive The Order: 1886 Shows Lovely Armor, Tesla's Generator; Teases Terrifying Video

That looks like more of an electric generator.

That video about The Order could mean in my theory that they maybe responsible for the creation of the half breeds hence the trophy A Knight no more and the conspiracy trailer, these things always ends up in a conspiracy of who is playing who. Maybe Galahad leaves for that reason and intend to finish The Order off. Hopefully he doesn't leave his awesome mustache behind.

Putting Nikola Tesla in the game's story is just fabulous. The more exposure that genius gets, even in his death, the better. How he's not taught about in classrooms is heresy, kudos to Ready At Dawn.

I agree. Tesla deserved better. Such an amazing mind. Unfortunately he doesn't get the recognition he deserves.

Tesla had great ideas, but he wasn't a genius. He barely understood the difference between current and voltage, and it was that misunderstanding of his own work that was his undoing. He was more of a mad scientist than a legit scientist, and that's why he works for this game. The developers are saying, "What if his ideas worked?"

You can even see how Tesla's wrong concepts still push into today's culture by looking up things like "power innovator" and such. You'll find people thinking they've created awesome sources of energy just because they have high voltage.

There is a great video from a channel called Veritaseum that demonstrates creating an electric spark with nothing more than falling water. But the spark is just voltage, not current, and so it's useless as a source of power.

So while Tesla would never reinvent the power industry, if he had a better grasp of the science, he maybe could have put tasers and stun guns 100 years ahead of their time (like what we see in The Order).

I have six disagrees, but here we are 100 years later with none (99%) of his ideas doing us any good. Newton? Genius. Einstein? Genius. Tesla? Something cool to see at the science center.

looking forward to this game but (kinda off topic) How comes theres always news from this site about driveclub and the order? What about the witcher 3? thats coming up too isnt that game glorious enough?

They often carry news of The Witcher:

But as those are multiplatform stories they are often beaten to the punch on submission.

I will put The Order in it's place in February, and it's place is in my ps4. Good times lie ahead for ps4 gamers in 2015. Now tell me when Rime and No Man's Sky are coming, and I'll be on my way.

The Order will be ready to play according to my PSN countdown pre-order timer in 19d 4hrs. I'm flipping out.
