The Valiant is a real-time strategy game with RPG elements. It was developed by Kite Games studio, known for Sudden Strike 4 and S.W.I.N.E. HD Remaster projects, and it was published by THQ Nordic.


The Valiant takes us to the Middle Ages. The main hero of the game is Theoderich von Akenburg - former crusader, who fifteen years ago put away his sword and never reached for it again. However, fate had other plans for him. During his last crusade, Theoderich and his friend Ulrich von Grevel found a fragment of Aaron's staff, an ancient artifact that hides a powerful weapon that in the wrong hands could threaten the whole world. The peaceful life of Theoderich, unaware of the impending safety, comes to an end when the monk Malcom pays him a visit. The unexpected guest informs him of Ulrich's obsession with finding the remaining parts of Aaron's staff. Having no other choice, the protagonist must once again take up the sword and set off on a journey to find and stop his old friend. Fortunately the hero is not doomed to go it alone; along the way he is joined by other daredevils, such as the battle-hardened knight Reinhard von Kempten and the ambitious mercenary Grimhild Eidottr.

Game mechanics

In The Valiant we observe the action from a top-down view. The pillar of the game is the story campaign with 15 missions, which throws us into different corners of the medieval world - from Europe to the Middle East. Realizing the tasks set before us, we command heroes and their teams. Each hero has an individual set of active and passive skills, which we unlock as we progress. Besides, the protagonist and his entourage gain more powerful equipment, over time becoming more effective in combat. And since we're talking about fighting - battles take place in real time, and during them it is as important to use the abilities of individual heroes and combine them in various combinations, as it is to place particular units correctly.

Game modes

In addition to the story campaign, The Valiant offers a co-op survival mode in which three players work together to fight off hordes of enemies. In addition, the game features a PvP mode, which allows for one-on-one and two-on-two battles.
