The Queen of the Night has stolen the Sun, the Moon and the Stars. You play as Aurora, the daughter of an Austrian duke with a pure heart whose soul is brought to the kingdom of Lemuria. Embark on a quest to recapture the three sources of light, defeat the Queen of the Night and restore the kingdom of Lemuria.
Child of Light is a platforming role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. The game puts players in the shoes of Aurora, a child stolen from her home, who, in her quest to return, must bring back the sun, the moon and the stars held captive by the mysterious Queen of the Night. Helped by her playable companion Igniculus the firefly and several unlikely allies, Aurora will face her darkest fears in this modern take on a coming-of-age story.
The game is largely inspired by popular old-school RPGs, such as Grandia and Grandia II. Most of the core creative team is formed of people who worked on Far Cry 3, both games share a similar upgrade skill tree.
It is set to release on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2014. It is powered by UbiArt Framework, an in-house engine by Ubisoft previously used for Rayman Origins and its sequel, Rayman Legends.
