World War I is oftentimes overshadowed by WWII when it comes to romanticizing history.
We'd like to think that the oversight can be attributed to World War I lacking a central villain the whole world can unite in vilifying. While WWI lacked a Hitler, Mussolini, or Hirohito to rally against, it was one of the first times in human history we were so capable of destroying ourselves with such grim and terrible efficiency.
Ubisoft will be releasing their World War I puzzle-adventure title, Valiant Hearts: The Great War, June 25 for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and PS4.
There's no glorified violence or over-the-top shooting action. Rather, Ubisoft has decided to focus on the humanistic component of people just trying to survive the Great War. Players take on several roles: Emile, a French prisoner of war; Lucky Freddie, an American soldier; Anna, a medic; and George, a British pilot. With the help of a trusty dog they set out on their own journeys to help Karl, a German solider.
Watch the trailer and try not to lose it when the dog starts to cry.
