Valiant Hearts: The Great War is Out Today on PS4 and PS3

32w ago - Game and Level Designer Simon Chocquet-Bottani announced that Valiant Hearts: The Great War is out today on PS4 and PS3 platforms with details below.

To quote: Hello, my name is Simon Chocquet-Bottani, Game and Level Designer on Valiant Hearts: The Great War for PS4 and PS3, out today. When we started making Valiant Hearts, we immediately knew what sort of feelings we wanted the game to evoke.

That has been our guiding principle throughout the game development process. We tried to make a game that will captivate you and take you on an emotional journey. We also wanted to make sure we stayed true to history, so we built the basis of our story around real events and real places.

As we were moving through and creating prototypes, we recognized many aspects of the war we wanted to talk about. This brought us to the idea of creating not one, but four main characters, each of them with their own experiences and interpretations of the war.

By switching between the four characters, we're able to tell a story with several cliffhangers, as well as lighten the moments between happiness and sadness as needed. The art style fit this concept perfectly because it allowed us to take people on an emotional adventure where they could be laughing or crying at any period of time.

Valiant Hearts: Historical Research and The Dogs in The Trenches

50°
32w ago - Ubisoft Content Manager Ed Casey shared a video today alongside some historical research and details on the dogs in the trenches in Valiant Hearts coming to PS4 and PS3 platforms below.

To quote: Though the characters in Valiant Hearts are fictional, the game is based in the very real and tragic history of World War I.

Teaming with World War I historian groups, the Valiant Hearts development team was able to craft a story rooted deeply in the history of the era that tells the story of individuals swept up in the chaos and destruction of The Great War.

In this Developer Diary we learn about the research done by the development team in order to weave historical fact and fiction together and tell a story of crossed destinies and a broken love torn apart by the chaos and horror of the war.

We also meet Walt The Dog and learn about "casualty dogs" or "mercy dogs" and the role they played in the trenches and on the battlefields in the darkest nights of World War I.





Valiant Hearts will be available June 24th, 2014 on PS4 and PS3. Check out Valiant Hearts on [Register or Login to view links], [Register or Login to view links], or on its official [Register or Login to view links]

Uncharted 4 First Interview: Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann Speak

100°
34w ago - Sony Social Media Senior Manager Sid Shuman shared an Uncharted 4 first interview from E3 2014 today with Bruce Straley and Neil Druckmann below!

To quote: Last night's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End trailer (which ran on PS4 hardware, by the way) closed the PlayStation E3 2014 Press Conference with a bang.

To get further insight into what Naughty Dog is planning for Nathan Drake, I sat down with Creative Director Neil Druckmann and Game Director Bruce Straley, who famously catapulted last year's The Last of Us to more than 200 Game of the Year Awards.

But Straley and Druckmann are no strangers to the Uncharted series, having played key roles in both Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves.





Watch the video above to learn more about their plans for one of 2015's most anticipated games.
