Ubisoft have released a new trailer for the upcoming Child of Light, and oh boy is it beautiful! The game is running on Ubisoft’s Ubiart Framework engine, and features a striking visual style.
They’ve kept this new trailer, titled The World of Lemuria, simple, focusing on the breathtaking environments.
if you’re unfamiliar with Child of Light then allow me to quickly fill you in; it’s a side-scrolling platformer set in 1895 which follows the tale of Aurora, a young girl in Austria who contracts a strange ailment and falls asleep. When she awakens she finds herself in the world of Lemuria, which has had its sun, moon and stars stolen by the Black Queen.
It’s because of games like this that Ubisoft have become one of my favorite developers. They mix in large, blockbuster games like Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag with things like Rayman Legends and Child of Light.
Child of Light arrives on April 30th for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, PS3, PS4 and Wii U.
I’ve got high hopes for this one.
