Many games were presented at E3 2014—some looking intense; some looking scary; some looking visually stunning; and some looking like a hell of a lot fun. But none looked quite as beautifully depressing as Valiant Hearts: The Great War.
The game is set during World War I, mixing exploration, action, and puzzles in a 2D adventure. It’s inspired by letters written during the Great War, and you’ll relive historical battles playing as four different characters joined by a faithful canine companion.
You can watch the trailer for Valiant Hearts below.
World War I. The years between 1914 and 1918 were some of the most devastating to the history of mankind, and through the destruction of war, millions of lives were left broken and irreparable.
Valiant Hearts is the story of crossed destinies and a broken love in a world torn apart by this very war. Four unsung heroes will try to rise above the tragedies strewn across Europe and band together with their trusty companion dog, Walt, in search of their loved ones.
In Valiant Hearts, the lives of these characters are inextricably drawn together over the course of the story. Friendship, love, sacrifice and tragedy befall each one as they help each other to retain their humanity against the horrors of war. Experience this story on June 25th, 2014 on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
