Ubisoft today announced Valiant Hearts: The Great War, a downloadable 2D platformer that is inspired by actual letters from World War I. The game will launch in 2014 for PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. No mention was made of a Wii or Wii U release.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is currently in development at Ubisoft Montpellier, the same team behind Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. It is being created using the UbiArt Framework engine, which also powered the latest Rayman console games.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War tells the story of four strangers who come together on the battlefield to help a young German soldier find love. The story is focused on survival, sacrifice, and friendship, Ubisoft said.
The five playable characters will solve puzzles and sneak through enemy lines alongside a "faithful canine companion" for certain periods of the story. The story is set during a "dark" time in history, but Ubisoft pointed out that there are lighthearted and comical moments throughout the entire game.
