For those unfamiliar, Valiant Hearts: The Great War is “the story of crossed destinies and a broken love in a world torn apart. It gives players the chance to live a touching yet comical adventure which focuses on the journey of four people as they brave the battles and difficulties of the Great War following their faithful canine companion. All of the main characters are inextricably drawn together, and friendship, love, sacrifice and tragedy befall each as they help each other to retain their humanity against the horrors of war.” Had to quote Ubisoft there as there is no possible way I could’ve described it better….
The game is clearly beautiful in its hand-drawn, comic book-esque visuals, made possible with the utilisation of the UbiArt Framework, the engine responsible for Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, as well as the fantastic Child of Light. We got a hands-on taste of the above in an earlier preview session, and should have a review for you soon. For now, check out the launch trailer embedded below.
