BANDAI NAMCO have kicked off their Gamescom 2018 news with a showcase of 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, revealed today, 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.
11-11: MEMORIES RETOLD is also now available to pre-order digitally from the Bandai Namco Europe online store here
The emotional journey will start on 9th November, 2018, when 11-11: MEMORIES RETOLD will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
