Sony's released a handful of screenshots of PlayStation 4 exclusive The Order: 1886 - and they remind us of Xbox 360 series Gears of War.

The screenshots, below, show off the Steampunk game's character-hugging third-person camera perspective. There's a dash of weapons fire, too.

The Order was announced during Sony's E3 2013 press conference with a cinematic that told us little about the game, save it was set in a Steampunk London alternate history 40 years after the Industrial Revolution.

According to the official blurb: "Man uses advanced technology to battle a powerful and ancient foe." You play as a member of an elite order of knights, joining a centuries-old war that will determine the course of history forever.

It's in development at Ready at Dawn, the studio behind the PlayStation Portable God of War games. Ready at Dawn co-founder Ru Weerasuriya has described The Order as a linear, story-based third-person action adventure with shooting mechanics and moment-to-moment gameplay that's "really not what you might expect".

Weerasuriya has also mentioned The Order having a "filmic" look due to the way Ready at Dawn is "shooting" the game. For more on that, and how Naughty Dog's Uncharted 2 influenced the game, check out our The Order interview from Gamescom 2013.
