A highly stylized side-scroller built on Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework, Valiant Hearts casts the European forests, cities, and trenches from the 1910’s affected by the First World War into the perspective of a comic strip of graphical novel with a design objective focused on visual artistry and compelling story.  Though the storyline of the game is fictitious in nature, the setting, scenery, events, and attire from Valiant Hearts are based upon and inspired by photographs, memorabilia, and correspondence from the First World War.

Endorsed by Mission Centenaire 14-18, a French commemorative program for the First World War, Valiant Hearts: The Great War will release across the current and previous generation Xbox and Playstation consoles and the PC platform through digital distribution June 25th priced at $14.99.
