Action RTS-RPG The Valiant Announced
THQ Nordic and Kite Games have announced The Valiant. The game is billed as a mixture between action, RTS, and RPG. It is planned to release for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S though a release window has not been announced.
The Valiant features a historical setting and follows former crusader Theoderich von Akenburg. Despite forsaking war, he is dragged back into conflict when a monk tells him that an artifact Theoderich and his former ally Ulrich von Grevel uncovered years prior contains untold power. Ulrich has begun search for the remaining parts of the artifact, which threatens the safety of the world.
Theoderich’s journey takes him across Europe and the Middle East where he recruits new allies and leads them into smaller-scale battles within unique missions. Players select which heroes to deploy in each mission, each hero coming with three different skill trees. In addition to its story campaign, the game will include a cooperative three-player “Last Man Standing” mode, where players face hordes of enemies as well as 1v1 and 2v2 competitive multiplayer.
