A release date has been set for the new sequel to Ubisoft’s mobile game Brave Hearts: Coming Home, which will debut on Netflix Games exclusively on January 31, 2023.
The new sequel is a follow-up to the puzzle-adventure game released on multiple platforms in 2014. It received rave reviews from critics, notably winning Best Narrative and Game for Change at The Game Awards in 2014.
The sequel was first announced in September 2022 along with a host of other game announcements, with the sequel described as being “led by the original core team and will retain the same DNA while introducing a new story. It will be available to Netflix members in January 2023.”
The game is being produced at Ubisoft’s Montpellier office, which opened in 1994, and at Old Skull Games, a studio based in Villeurbanne, France.
According to Netflix, here’s what you can expect from the new entry:
“1917, as World War I rages on, two brothers will fight to survive in the trenches and find each other again. Their paths will cross with the new Valiant Hearts who will share the joy of reuniting and the horror of the Western Front, all desperate to find their way home.”
