Ubisoft’s Valiant Hearts: Coming Home mobile game will launch exclusively on Netflix Games on January 31.
Previously announced in September 2022, Netflix and Ubisoft Announced the official release date for Valiant Hearts: Coming Home yesterday. As part of a recent partnership, this is the first of three mobile games from Netflix and Ubisoft. Also coming to Netflix Games in 2023 is Ubisoft’s The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot and a mobile game Assassin’s Creed.
Valiant Hearts: Coming Home is a narrative game set during the First World War. It combines puzzle, adventure and action gameplay as players follow the story of four war heroes trying to survive. According to Netflix and Ubisoft, Valiant Hearts: Coming Home takes inspiration from the Harlem Hellfighters, one of the first African-American infantry regiments during World War I and World War II.
The upcoming game is the sequel to Valiant Hearts: The Great War, the puzzle-adventure game that released in 2014 on Android and iOS devices, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, and other platforms.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War won multiple awards, making the upcoming sequel to the mobile game a smart addition to Netflix’s lineup of games. The company has released other popular games to increase its audience, such as Oxenfree, Into the Breach, Lucky Luna, and more.
Netflix’s gaming division has been known to use popular IPs as a way to attract gamers. For example, Netflix recently released its latest mobile game, Narcos: Cartel Wars Unlimited, based on the hit TV series “Narcos.” The strategy game allows players to take on the role of a cartel kingpin, build their own empire and destroy enemies.
The company also plans to release more games this year, including Vikings: Valhalla and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.
To access Netflix mobile games, you need a Netflix subscription. Subscribers can go to the Netflix app under the “Netflix Games” tab or download titles directly through the Google Play Store or Apple Store. There are more than 50 games available on the platform.
