Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has released the first story trailer for upcoming WW1-set narrative adventure, 11-11: Memories Retold.
The game, created in conjunction with the Oscar-winning studio Aardman and DigixArt, brings to life the story of both sides of WW1 – 100 years after its conclusion. The new trailer introduces the two key characters of the game, Kurt and Harry, set amongst the backdrop of the tense, cramped, and claustrophobic trenches.
Kurt, a German soldier played by International Emmy-nominated actor Sebastian Koch, is a father, who is only on the front lines after signing up to look for his son, who is missing in action. While Harry, a Canadian war photographer played by multi-award winning actor Elijah Wood, has arrived on the battlefield only to discover the harsh realities of war on the frontline. The game’s plot revolves around these two playable characters, their companions, and their connection to each other as players tackle this moving, narrative adventure.
Developed by Aardman and DigixArt, players will experience two sides, both at the front and the rear, of a complex historical event – in a war game that stands for peace. Inspired by true events, the story of 11-11: Memories Retold is brought to life using an innovative artistic technique that creates playable characters as if within a painting.
Between the acting talent on hand, the arresting visuals, and the emotional score 11-11: Memories Retold could be a hell of a game. I myself found myself choking up as the trailer came to its striking conclusion.
11-11: Memories Retold is also now available to pre-order digitally from the Bandai Namco Europe online store
