Valiant Hearts: The Great War releasing on June 25

Ubisoft Montpelier dates WWI adventure game

Valiant Hearts: The Great War will release on June 25, 2014, Ubisoft announced Wednesday.

The adventure-puzzle game developed by Rayman Legends studio Ubisoft Montpelier takes place during the first World War, starring four people and a dog whose hopes, dreams, and loves are shaped by the conflict, according to the official blurb:

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.

It will release simultaneously on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One for £11.99/$14.99.
