Valiant Hearts: The Great War
is the latest digital title announced by Ubisoft utilizing the UbiArts engine which powers the recently released Rayman Legends
. Unlike Rayman
, Valiant Hearts: The Great War
takes a more somber tone as it explores five characters during World War 1. The first trailer we have contains no actual gameplay, but it does a great job in giving us background of each of the five characters and an adorable dog that just happens to be seen with all of them.
For those that can not listen to the trailer, the five characters are: Emile, a French POW forced to peel potatoes for the Germans and remain separated from his family; Freddie, a soldier that just happens to have incredible luck and survives at all costs; Ana, a medic whom works down in the trenches; George, a British pilot that lied about his ability to fly and finally, Karl, a German in love with Emile's daughter.
Hopefully we'll get more information soon on this title, as the graphics look incredible and the setting is a unique one for a non-FPS genre. Valiant Hearts: The Great War
will be available digitally sometime next year for Xbox LIVE Arcade and the Xbox One.
