Since the release of God of War: Ascension last March, we have supported Multiplayer with a vast amount of DLC - from new weapons and maps, to our brutal 1v1 mode, a fan-driven cape contest, new marks, and more. Even the Gods could not have predicted the level of popularity and impassioned connection to our Multiplayer mode driven by the PlayStation Nation.

As of today, we will not be producing any more DLC content (maps, weapons, armors, marks) for God of War: Ascension Multiplayer, as our primary...

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

50°
63w 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....
