Ubisoft Montpelier, the studio behind the deliriously beautiful Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends, has used their UbiArt Framework engine to create some amazing and detailed art that rivals even most cartoons airing on TV today. However, with a trailer released this morning for the studio’s latest game, it looks like the studio is looking to use the engine to tell a much more somber, darker, and richer story.
Shown today through a release trailer, Valiant Hearts: The Great War is a 2D platformer (with heavy puzzle-solving elements) that focuses on a team of soldiers during World War I and follows their connected stories during the war, showing a beautiful but much more somber story combined with the handdrawn-quality art of the Rayman series from the UbiArt Framework engine. You can see the first look at Valiant Hearts: The Great War below in the reveal trailer: it’s definitely something to behold.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War releases on Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, and PC in 2014.
