Valiant Hearts: The Great War is Coming to PS4 and PS3 in 2014

50°
43w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements announced today that Valiant Hearts: The Great War is coming to PS4 and PS3 in 2014.

To quote: Ubisoft has revealed one of its latest projects built on UbiArt Framework - known for its use in the marvelous Rayman games.

Titled Valiant Hearts: The Great War, this puzzle adventure will follow five characters from different countries as they struggle to survive one of the most devastating events in human history: the first World War.

Ubisoft Montpellier is handling development of Valiant Hearts, and aims to launch on PS3 and PS4 sometime next year.

In Valiant Hearts, the five characters are drawn together by one common cause: reuniting a young German soldier with his lost love. As the five suffer through the unimaginable dangers of the trenches, they're guided by a single canine companion - a German dog separated from its owner during an artillery attack.

This dog will not only help the characters survive, but also serve as a guide to players during both action sequences and puzzles.

The art of Valiant Hearts tackles the tragedy of the war with an almost unassuming innocence. Characters are drawn as caricatures of each nation, and the battlefields are stylized exaggerations of their real-world counterparts....

Video: Mars War Logs is Out Tomorrow on PlayStation Network

48w ago - Spiders Studio Project Manager Walid Miled confirmed that Mars War Logs is out tomorrow on PlayStation Network.

To quote: As a sci-fi action RPG, Mars War Logs will take you to a never-before-seen version of the Red Planet.

The Turmoil, an event that transformed Mars, reversed centuries of terraforming. Human governments struggle to keep a once-prosperous Martian civilization together while battling over precious resources.

Mars War Logs is the story of Roy Temperance and Innocence Smith. One's a renegade technomancer, and the other was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's a tale of friendship, resistance, and freedom.

Spiders Studio was founded with the Mars project in mind, but it took nearly four years for the idea to mature and the tools to develop.

One of the greatest challenges was to get the player involved with our characters and their quest for freedom and justice. To do so, we empowered the player with choices that really affect the outcomes and events of the plot.

Mars War Logs is also, and foremost, an action RPG. Players have to fight other humans and mutants, but there are also monsters unique to a Martian ecology that are shaped by Mars' wild terrain, the Turmoil, and human terraforming.

We put a lot of...
