Valiant Hearts: The Great War Receives Release Date and Trailer

While the Second World War has inspired countless videogames, World War I is a conflict rarely touched upon in the medium. It mostly has to do with WWII having a clearly identifiable “evil” to vanquish, while “The War to End All Wars” was a murkier battle, fought for altogether more political reasons.

Instead of releasing a straight-up military game that takes place during the war, Ubisoft is doing something different with Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The game tells a personal tale about four people who participate in the battle, in a 2D adventure puzzler which aims to show the struggles that the characters have to endure – and the things that they do and sacrifice for those they love and care for.

The game runs on the UbiArt Framework engine, which was also used to create Rayman: Origins, Rayman Legends, and Child of Light. Although the art style is animated, it carries a somber and dark tone in stark contrast to those games . As you can see from the trailer below, it perfectly captures the horror of the Great War.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War will be released on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on June 25.
