Ubisoft announced that the console game Valiant Hearts: The Great War is coming to iOS devices on September 4, 2014. The game is a puzzle adventure title that follows a German soldier named Karl and his wife Emile in World War I. Emile must team up with Freddy, an American volunteer in the French army, and Anna, a Belgian student, to take down the German leader Baron Von Dorf.
The game was partly inspired by "letters and postcards of Félix Chazal, a French solider and great-grandfather to Yoan Fanise, a Valiant Hearts producer at Ubisoft Montpelier," according to Touch Arcade. The letters are featured in the game along with real-world facts about the Great War. Valiant Hearts is also powered by Ubisoft 's UbiArt Framework game engine.
The original PC and console version of the game was well reviewed when it was released in June, 2014. The PS4 version has received a 74 Metascore based on 44 reviews from metacritic.com.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War will be released episodically. Ubisoft has not announced pricing at this time, but each individual chapter will most likely be sold as a separate in-app purchase.
