I swear, Ubisoft, if anything happens to that dog, I'll... er, well probably just a have a little cry about it. I bet that's exactly what they want, too, the monsters. Valiant Hearts: The Great War may be a puzzle-based adventure game, but, as you can see from the tone of this new trailer, the character-led look at World War 1 won't be afraid to play with your emotions when it releases on June 25th.

Ubisoft have let loose the games hose at their Digital Days event in Paris. As well as announcing an unexpectedly HD'd re-release of Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, they've also revealed a couple of new games that continue their experiments with smaller-budget, digital only releases. And, if you're looking for experimental, Valiant Hearts: The Great War ticks a lot of the right boxes. It's an exploration driven adventure set during the first World War, which tells the story of five characters and a dog.
