Ubisoft’s mobile game Valiant Hearts: Coming Home launches exclusively on Netflix Games on January 31.
Previously announced in September 2022, Netflix and Ubisoft announced the official release date of Valiant Hearts: Coming Home was yesterday. As part of a recent partnership, this is the first of three mobile games from Netflix and Ubisoft. Also coming to Netflix Games in 2023 is Ubisoft’s The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot and a mobile game of Assassin’s Creed.
Valiant Hearts: Coming Home is a narrative game set during World War I. It combines puzzle games, adventure and action as players follow the story of four war heroes trying to survive. According to Netflix and Ubisoft, Valiant Hearts: Coming Home is inspired by the Harlem Hellfighters, one of the first African-American infantry regiments during WWI and WWII.
The upcoming game is the sequel to Valiant Hearts: The Great War, the puzzle adventure game released in 2014 on Android and iOS devices, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One, and other platforms.
Valiant Hearts: The Great War has won multiple awards, so the upcoming mobile game sequel is a smart addition to Netflix’s gaming lineup. The company has launched other popular games to boost its audience, such as Oxenfree, Into the Breach, Lucky Luna and more.
The gaming division of Netflix has been known to use popular IP as a way to entice gamers. For example, Netflix recently launched its latest mobile game, Narcos: Cartel Wars Unlimited, based on the popular TV series ‘Narcos’. In the strategy game, players take on the role of a cartel head, build their own empire and destroy enemies.
The company also plans to release more games this year, including Vikings: Valhalla and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge.
To access Netflix mobile games, you need a Netflix subscription. Subscribers can go to the Netflix app under the ‘Netflix Games’ tab or download titles directly from the Google Play Store or Apple Store. There are more than 50 games available on the platform.
