Valiant Hearts "is a game about war, not a war game", about love and tragedy, compassion and survival according to what I've read and the previews I've seen are all positive.
There are between 3 and 5 playable characters, among them an older German soldier, a Belgian nurse, an American soldier...and a dog who follows at least one of them and helps through the game.
It is done in a comic book style which I don't ordinarily like but here it looks just right.
I've seen it described as a puzzle/adventure game and while there does appear to be some action in it - the one sequence I've seen looks very mild and easily doable - I'd say that's what it probably is.
Valiant Hearts isn't out yet; it's made by Ubisoft and will be released on June 25th.
Here's a preview from Gamespot.
Here's another from IGN.
Here's a Developers' Diary video from YouTube
It's an unusual premise for a game.
I hope our adventurous reviewers on GB take a look at it.

Gil.

Hi Gil, I did not announce their press releases because it's an action adventure. I will move it to the DarkSide.

VALIANT HEARTS: THE GREAT WAR NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — June 25, 2014 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Valiant Hearts: the Great War™ is now available to download on Xbox LIVE for the Xbox® 360 and Xbox® One, the PlayStation Network for the PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4, and PC Digital, at the price of $14.99.

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.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War™ is being developed by a small team at Ubisoft Montpellier, known for their work on critically-acclaimed titles like Beyond Good & Evil®, Rayman Origins® and Rayman® Legends. The team is using the UbiArt Framework to easily and efficiently animate the game’s comic-book style, which consists of a wide-ranging color palette – from the dank trenches to green forests and snowy fields – that provides stunning scenic variety and visual contrast. Ubisoft’s UbiArt Framework is a powerful engine that lets programmers and artists to bring their art to life by allowing original concept art to be inserted unedited into the game world.

Hi, Ana,
Yes, I am interested.
How can I resist a game with a German Shepherd Dog as one of the main characters, however little he looks like one? grin
But Steam leapt at me when I clicked on Shop.
I see that Gamespot has it as a digital download but I'm highly suspicious of buying it and finding myself with a Steam key, so I'll wait until I find out for certain I can get it free and clear of Steam.

Thank you though, it was nice of you to post that info.

smile

Gil.
