Child of Light Releasing April 30

Child of Light

Ubisoft revealed that Child of Light, their upcoming JRPG-inspired game, will release on April 30, 2014. The game will cost $14.99 and be available on the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U and PC.

Child of Light is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal, the same studio behind the Assassin’s Creed franchise, Watch Dogs and Far Cry. It was revealed at last year’s GDC Europe by Patrick Plourde, the creative director of Far Cry 3. In fact, much of the team behind Far Cry 3 compromises the creative team behind Child of Light.

[adsense250itp]In Child of Light, players take on the role of Aurora and her companion Igniculus. With a story told in rhyming verse, Aurora travels through the world of Lemuria on the quest to free the sun, moon and stars from the clutches of the Queen of the Night. Retrieving those sources of light are only part of Aurora’s coming-of-age tale.

Ubisoft Montreal will be using UbiArt Framework to power the visuals and engine of Child of Light. The engine was also used in Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends. Gameplay will feature an Active Time Battle system found in the Final Fantasy series and other RPGs. Players will also be able to craft items and unlock skills using a deep progression tree. Co-op elements will also come into play with Igniculus, giving players the option to play solo or with a friend.

To coincide with the release date announcement, Ubisoft released a new feature trailer for Child of Light. The trailer provides a glance at the type of action and gameplay players will experience during their time in Lemuria. Check out the trailer and its gorgeous visuals below.
