Ubisoft announced Valiant Hearts, the puzzle-adventure game set during World War I will be released on June 25th 2014.
The game will be available as a download on Xbox Live for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, on PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 and on PC Digital, for the price of €14.99.
Valiant Heart looks at a world engulfed in war through the eyes of various characters forced to live it. The players will get the chance to go through a personal yet comical adventure focusing on the Journey of four companions as they brave the difficulties of the Great War, following their canine companion. All main characters are drawn together, with love, friendship, sacrifice and tragedy come for each of them, as they battle to regain their humanity.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War™ is being developed by a small team at Ubisoft Montpellier, known for their work on critically-acclaimed titles like Beyond Good & Evil®, Rayman Origins® and Rayman® Legends. The team is using the UbiArt Framework to animate the game’s comic-book style, which consists of a wide-ranging color palette – from the dank trenches to green forests and snowy fields – that provides stunning scenic variety and visual contrast. Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework is a powerful engine, which allows users to add original concept-art to be inserted without any edits in the game. The engine was previously used in previous small titles like Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, and recently in the turn-based roleplaying game Child of Light,
