Bandai Namco has released the story trailer for 11-11: Memories Retold, which introduces key characters Kurt and Harry against the backdrop of “tense, cramped, and claustrophobic” trenches.
Here is an overview of the game, via Bandai Namco:
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.
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 due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on November 9.
