Ubisoft and Apocalypse Commemorate World War I

Ubisoft and Apocalypse join together to commemorate World War I in their new game Valiant Hearts: The Great War.

Ubisoft has announced its association with CC&C of France and IDEACOM INTERNATIONAL of Canada, production agencies specialized in historical productions, as part of the creation team for Valiant Hearts: the Great War. It's an interactive adventure showcasing the graphic power of the UbiArt Framework and putting in motion the lives of touching characters lost in the trenches of World War I.

The partnership allows the development team to utilize the Apocalypse databases, specifically on World War I. This also allows a unique opportunity to enhance the game with significant photographs, providing players with the opportunity to access content, and learn more about this major chapter of history.


Valiant Hearts: The Great War is the story of friendship, love, sacrifice, tragedy, crossed destinies and of a broken love in a world torn apart. In Ubisoft's new puzzle-adventure game, you must take on the role of five different characters, including a faithful canine companion, surviving the horrors of the trenches during the Great War by solving puzzles or sneaking through enemy lines. The game is a thoughtful balance between exploration, actions and puzzles; all of these integrated into a stirring story taking place at symbolic World War I locations.

The game will be an animated comic book adventure that delivers a unique emotional tone, art style, and will have players reliving some of WWI's most historical battles like the Battle of the Marne, the Western Front, the Verdun, and the Battle of the Somme while trying to survive these life and death situations, and helping a young German soldier find his love.

The game is set to release on PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3 for $14.99 USD on June 25th. The detailed informational content is available in-game and is conceived as part of the partnership with Apocalyspe, World War I, the iPad and Web app Apocalypse 10 Lives.
