Ubisoft have announced that Valiant Hearts: The Great War, the puzzle-adventure game set during World War I, will release today (September 4th, 2014) on the App Store.
This mobile version for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch introduces intuitive touch controls, completely rethought and adapted to the mobile format, making Valiant Hearts more accessible than ever before.
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.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War was developed by a small team at Ubisoft Montpellier, known for their work on titles like Beyond Good & Evil, Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. The team is using the UbiArt Framework to easily and efficiently animate the game’s comic-book style, which consists of a wide-ranging color palette – from the dank trenches to green forests and snowy fields – that provides stunning scenic variety and visual contrast. Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework is a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world.
