Ubisoft has today announced that Valiant Hearts: The Great War, their upcoming puzzle adventure game, has been in association with CC&C (France) and IDEACOM INTERNATIONAL (Canada), who are both two very prestigious production agencies that focus on historical productions. This ‘partnership’ of sorts has allowed Ubisoft to utilize the content of CC&C’s production Apocalypse World War I, which in turn has given them the ability to present a deeper insight in to The First World War.
Players will be able to read historical information and view reworked photos to further their understanding of this tragic chapter in history. The story will revolve around a series of characters who help in the search of a soldier’s lost love, in a world torn apart by war. The game aims to allow players to view the horrors of the trenches in a story that involves survival, sacrifice and friendship. Gameplay will be balanced between exploration, puzzle, and action.
Ubisoft’s in house engine called UbiArt Framework will be powering the game and its visual style. The engine has recently been used for Ubisoft’s Child of Light. Watch the developer diary above to see the high level of historical accuracy Ubisoft are attempting to implement in this emotionally charged adventure.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is scheduled to be released June 25, 2014 for Windows PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
