Ubisoft wants Valiant Hearts to bring a tear to your eye


3:45 PM on 05.23.2014



Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a World War I game unlike any other I've seen.

It's the kind of project that makes me okay with the existence of the Assassin's Creeds of the Ubisoft world -- without those mega franchises and their continuous sequels, Valiant Hearts and the recent string of poor selling but amazing Rayman titles might not exist.

Still, I hope this game can find its audience. It's out on June 25 for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. This video, the first in a series of developer diaries, covers the art lead by Paul Tumelaire as well as the emotional, personal story Ubisoft Montpellier hopes to tell.

Valiant Hearts' launch trailer makes me want this game now

Valiant Hearts has been on my radar for a while now. Hell, anything in the UbiArt engine is. But, my curiosity ramped up when Chris "Energizer Bunny" Carter said it was good enough to merit a 9/10. After watching this trailer, I think it's time I queue it up right now so I can queue up some tears in a few hours.more

Review: Valiant Hearts: The Great War

Paradigm is a point-'n'-click game starring sloths and mutants

While adventure games are doing as well as ever, there's still not too many that hark back to the classic era games like Day of the Tentacle. They used to be really weird! Jacob Janerka's Paradigm seems to emulate that style...more
