Ubisoft Announces Gorgeous World War I-Era Love Story, ‘Valiant Hearts’ for Next Year

“Valiant Hearts: The Great War,” a new adventure game by a 10-person team at Ubisoft Montpelier, might be the most interesting new thing coming out of the mega-publisher’s Digital Days event last week.

I don’t mean any disrespect to “Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation HD” or “Child of Light,” which were also announced at the show. It’s just that “Liberation” is an admittedly robust-seeming port¬†of a PS Vita game, and “Child of Light” was let out of the bag last month.

With five protagonists, ¬†gorgeous art direction, and a puzzle-solving Rottweiler companion, “Valiant Hearts” takes the day. Here’s the game’s first trailer:
