Military shooters are dime a dozen these days, so it's nice to see a studio take a different approach to the ubiquitous subject matter. It's even more heartening when that title's publisher also happens to be more famously known for its annual franchises. Perhaps most exciting of all, though, is when that game will be made using the UbiArt engine.

We are, of course, talking about Ubisoft's forthcoming Valiant Hearts: The Great War. The gorgeous puzzler tackles World War I head-on, and sees you play as five different characters in a heart wrenching tale of the atrocities and ugliness of war. The studio recently released a new video on the PlayStation Blog that shows off some fresh footage of the game, as well as interviews with its creators.

According to the clip, huge amounts of research were put into the title's narrative, so as to maintain historical accuracy. What's more, the team attempted to put a strong focus on smaller, more personal stories, to try to help ground the experience. As we said in our preview, we're pretty excited for the unique puzzler, and this trailer hasn't diminished that at all.

Will you be picking up Valiant Hearts: The Great War when it arrives in June? What do you make of the ambitious title? Let us know in the comments section below.
