Inspired by real letters from the trenches of World War I, Valiant Hearts is a harrowing tale about four lives and how the Great War affected them. Their paths constantly crossing due to circumstance, as well as life’s great motivators; love, family, pride and even, in one instance, hatred that cuts deep to the bone.
Valiant Hearts is as genuine and authentic a wartime story as we’ve ever been gifted in this medium, and it truly runs the gamut from brutally bleak to hopeful. One hundred Call of Duty titles couldn’t paint a picture depicting the horrors of war like Valiant Hearts has, and it has done so all the while maintaining a tongue-in-cheek slapstick that rears its head from time to time.
It’s an odd, yet brilliant, balance that is struck by Ubisoft Montpellier.
