Ubisoft has announced a new 2D platformer called Valiant Hearts: The Great War. It is being developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the developers who made Rayman Legends, From Dust, and ZombiU. It will be available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 in 2014.
The game will be based off of actual letters sent during World War I. It will feature a group of four soldiers, who are strangers to one another, helping a younger German soldier find his love. The story will be focused on survival, sacrifice, and friendship.
Each of the five characters will be playable, solving puzzles and surviving the “horrors of the trenches” alongside a “faithful canine companion.” However, even though the game will be set during a dark time of history, the story will still have its funny moments.
