Details from the press release further explain the expectations from the game as:
The Valiant is an upcoming action-RTS with RPG elements, designed to bring a fresh experience to players wanting something new in the genre. Focused on more tactical combat with smaller forces, players encounter a sweeping, story-driven campaign where each mission’s challenge is unique. Decisions both on and off the battlefield count, as players will want to select their forces carefully for each mission (no base building here!), as well as decide the skills and equipment given to each hero. With three unique skill trees per hero, there are plenty of options to explore when finding the playstyle that fits best, and Valiant’s fast-paced, melee-centric combat will give new challenges to even the most veteran RTS player.
Players can also expect multiplayer in the form of both cooperative and competitive.
As for release, there isn’t anything concrete. According to the YouTube description of the trailers, The Valiant will be “coming soon to PC, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.”
