Ubisoft Reveals Next-Gen RPG, Child of Light
During its Digital Days event today, Ubisoft unveiled Child of Light, a digital download RPG heading to next-gen consoles and PC.
Child of Light‘s standout feature is the UBIArt Framework graphics engine, which allows the developer to create the game world using original concept art. This has allowed Ubisoft’s creative team to design a game that appears to be a water color painting come to life.
“Ubisoft’s strengths include its diversity and the freedom it gives its creative teams,” said Patrick Plourde, creative director, Ubisoft. “We want Child of Light to be like a playable poem, a love letter to art and video games.”
Key Features [via press release]:
- An Adventure Waits! – Created by the talented team of Ubisoft Montréal using the UBIArt Framework, Child of Light is an RPG inspired by fairy tales. Take an extraordinary journey through the vast world of Lemuria and explore its mythical environments, interact with its inhabitants as you discover new locations and their secrets.
- The breathing world of Lemuria – Across your experience through Lemuria you will meet encounters that you will remember, from friendly fairies and gnomes to vile wolves and dark dragons.
- Fight monsters and evil mythical creatures – Aurora has the power to fight creatures from the dark and to restore the Stolen Lights. Fight alongside the Igniculus in Active Time Battle Systems.
- Your firefly ally can be controlled by another player, so you can live this adventure with your friends.
Child of Light will release on next-gen consoles and PC in 2014.
