Originally teased at GDC Europe last month, Ubisoft Montreal has released an official announcement trailer for Child of Light.
The project is led by Far Cry 3′s creative director, Patrick Plourde, and will be heading to the Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC. According to Ubisoft Montreal, Child of Light will focus on Aurora, a young princess who is whisked away to the kingdom of Lemuria. Unfortunately for Aurora, she discovers that the inhabitants of the kingdom have all turned into crows. Along with a mystical blue orb companion named Igniculus, Aurora embarks on a journey to discover what has caused Lemuria’s plight.
Child of Light will feature turn-based battles and a skill tree closely resembling the one seen in Far Cry 3. Igniculus can also be controlled by a second player, making Child of Light somewhat unique as a cooperative RPG. Both characters feature different play styles, with Aurora attacking and defending with her sword and magic, while Igniculus uses a light source to heal and blind enemies. The turn-based battles will be familiar to Final Fantasy players as it will feature an “Active Time Battle System Meter” that indicates when it’s each character’s turn to move in battle.
Child of Light will be released in 2014 and you can view the announcement trailer below.
