Ubisoft Announces Valiant Hearts, A Stunning Downloadable Game Set During World War 1

War. War never changes. It’s a famous line, and one that almost feels like it applies to videogames in recent years. The game’s industry churns out shooter after grey shooter, each as generic as the last with only a few shining beacons of brilliance breaking up the monotomy.

Another of those beacons is due to light next year in the form of Ubisoft’s new title, Valiant Heart, a game set during the first World War which follows the story 5 interconnected people and one dog, a story inspired real letters from the war.

In terms of gameplay Valiant Hearts is a 2D puzzler, but little more is known past that. What we do know is the game is running on Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, which the beautiful Rayman: Legends was built around.

I’ve got high hopes for this little title. The developers have mentioned that there will be some humour throughout the game to contrast the bleakness of the subject matter, and of course at the centre of it all is a hopefully touching character-driven story, but I hope they don’t stay too far away from the horror of the war. It would be too easy for the war to be used simply as a backdrop and nothing more.

Valiant Hearts is a downloadable title and will be available sometime in 2014 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC .

About Baden Ronie

I always hate writing about myself, it's such a pain in the ass to know where I should start. I'm twenty-two years young and love to play, as you may have already guessed. When WolfsGamingBlog.com started up it was simply because I found writing to be a good form of stress relief for when my Cystic Fibrosis was getting me down or simply because I had been having a bad week. When I started writing I never dreamed that people would actually read it, or that it would ever get this big. It's mind boggling. My writing isn't the best, but through trial, error and the comments of readers I strive to improve it so I can provide fair reviews. My ultimate goal is to prove that not everyone in the gaming media are corrupt idiots intent on delivering false reviews. Other than that I'm a fully qualified lifeguard and used to teach first-aid and life-saving skills to kids. What more is there to say? Hmmm, well I love music, reading and films. I'm a drummer, enjoy going swimming and tend to get distracted by shiny objects. Is that a fifty-pence?
