As of today, we can be truly excited to see the newest title using the UbiArt Engine that powered the newest Rayman™ titles, but also the wondrous title Child of Light. Our latest entry to experience from Ubisoft’s amazing UbiArt Engine is Valiant Hearts: The Great War™, which is described as a puzzle-adventure game set during the days of World War I. The story is supposed to be a rather emotionally heavy title, which is about crossed destinies and broken love, which has been caused by the war itself. During the title, players are said to experience friendship, love, and sacrifice, and tragedy as each of the characters try to help each other remain as human as they can as they survive against the horrific sights of the war.
For those wondering, Valiant Hearts: The Great War™, will release on XBox Live for the XBox One and XBox 360, as well as the PlayStation Network for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, while also getting a PC Digital release for the price of 14.99 on June 25th, 2014.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, known for their work on critically-acclaimed titles like Beyond Good & Evil®, Rayman Origins® and Rayman® Legends. The title uses UbiArt Framework which allows them to efficiently animate the game’s comic-book style, which consists of a wide-ranging color palette – from the dark trenches to green forests and snowy fields, and provides stunning scenic variety and visual contrast.
