Uber transports guests back in time to launch The Order: 1886™ on PlayStation®4

For one night only, Aucklanders can use the Uber app to transport themselves back to Victorian-Era 1886 with the long-awaited title, The Order: 1886, exclusive to PlayStation®4 (PS4™).

To celebrate the launch of The Order: 1886, PlayStation has teamed up with Uber, the popular technology company, and will pick up people with a horse-drawn carriage, themed straight out of the game.

The Order: 1886 carriage will be set up with a TV and PS4™, treating passengers to an exclusive experience of the filmic and immersive game during their ride around the Ponsonby area.

Krister Robinson, Marketing Manager for Sony Computer Entertainment New Zealand, says that the horse-drawn carriage making appearances along busy Ponsonby Rd is a great way to bring the game to life.

“This game is the perfect marriage of past, myth and modern technology. Everything in the game, from the characters, the enemy, the weapons, the setting and the technology has been crafted to bring this to life. We’re looking forward to offering some passengers a one-off travel experience that brings history – The Order: 1886 carriage – and today’s technology – Uber – together,” says Robinson.

To take advantage of this one of a kind opportunity, interested travellers need to download the Uber app, and enter the promotion code 1886UBER before or on Wednesday 25 February. For a chance to ride, guests should locate themselves at 5 Rose Road in Ponsonby and request their ride between 7:00pm – 8:30pm.

The highly anticipated The Order: 1886 is a major title for PlayStation in 2015. The third person action-adventure game sees players assuming the role of Galahad, one of the most experienced Knights of the Order, to discover history’s darkest secret. Rewrite the past in this unique vision of Victorian London where advanced weaponry is used to battle a powerful and ancient foe.

The Order: 1886 exclusively on PS4, is available now in store and on the PlayStation Network.
