Ubisoft has revealed the debut trailer for the upcoming RPG Child of Light. Set in the fantasy kingdom of Lemuria, you play as Aurora, a young princess on a quest to return light to the world where the sun, moon, and stars have been stolen by the evil Black Queen.
The ‘Beware the Night’ announcement trailer showcases the beautiful art style of Child of Light along with a few of the gameplay features. Princess Aurora is guided by a blue fairy orb named Igniculus. A second player can drop in and out of the game to control Igniculus to discover hidden treasures or aide Aurora in battle by blinding her enemies.
Child of Light is being developed by Ubisoft Montreal with Far Cry 3 director Patrick Plourde at the helm. It is being developed using the UbiArt engine, the same engine used for the Rayman franchise. The game will be released sometime in 2014 for current and next-gen consoles.
