Valiant Hearts out now (and cheaper) on iOS

2 min read


Valiant Hearts is one of this year’s games that I still desperately want to play. Ubisoft has really done well with their indie-like 2D side-scrollers, and I’m an absolute sucker for a game that looks as good as Valiant Hearts does. Earlier this year Ubisoft revealed that the World War I platformer would be making its way to iOS in the future. That day is today, and you can pick up Valiant Hearts right now on your Apple device of choice.

Unlike the PC and console versions of the game, Valiant Hearts is split up into to packages on iOS. The first will set you back $4.99, offering the first two chapters of the game only. If you haven’t drowned in your own tears by then, you can purchase the remaining three chapters for $8.99. So, in total, the iOS version of The Great War is actually the cheapest around. Until Steam rolls in with a new seasonal sale of course.

If you’re still not up to speed on what Valiant Hearts is about, here’s the spoiler free condensed version. Valiant Hearts tells the tale of five different characters during the First World War, with the consequences of their actions affecting the war around them. It’s a heartbreaking tale, one which melted Zoe’s heart earlier this year, although some would argue that the gameplay isn’t entirely up to scratch.

It still looks like a must play to me, and now there’s a whole new platform to explore it on. Just make sure you don’t accidentally burst into tears in front of everyone if you intended to play this on the go.

You can all call me Sandy until I figure out how to edit this thing, which is probably never. Sandy not good enough? Call me xXx_J0k3R_360degreeN0Sc0pe_xXx. Also, Geoff’s a bastard.

  • Too much for an iOS game. I know, it’s fundamentally the same thing as the console and pc game – but there’s a “sweet spot” when it comes to mobile games pricing – and this isnt it.

      $9 is a sensible price for a new game with high production values. Squenix’s practice of selling 5 year old games for $20 is more unfortunate. I’m always happy to see premium mobile content.

    I have to say, even though it isnt the longest game, I absolutely loved this game.

    Gameplay-wise it isn’t too challenging but the game does a very good job at telling it’s story.

    Everytime I would go into the menu, the menu music would tug at my heartstrings.

    And that ending!
