A few days before the official release of A Plague Tale: Requiem, the plot is revealed a bit in a deluxe trailer dedicated to the story.
After the release in 2019, A Plague Tale: Innocence immediately won the audience and critics. Much deserved unanimous success as the game developed by Bordelais of Asobo Studio (Microsoft Flight Simulator) was brimming with quality. A true declaration of love for the video game medium, the title manages to stand out thanks to its compelling storytelling, beautiful gameplay and staging, and an accurate representation of 14th-century France devastated by the Black Plague. his cute duo of heroes.
Thus, three years later, Amicia and Hugo De Rune are back in action to embark on a journey that promises to be much more epic and dramatic than the previous one. The first images released bit by bit regarding this sequel showed a much more mature Amicia than at the beginning of the first opus. She hardened, and her face is now marked by the hardships she had to endure. The same goes for Hugo, whose strange illness continues to progress, risking eventually killing him.
The latest trailer, mainly intended to give a glimpse of the adventures awaiting players in A Plague Tale: Requiem, shows a much wider cast of characters and already hints at the hero duo’s long journey. After leaving their homeland after the events of Innocence, Amicia and Hugo head south to a mysterious island in search of answers and a solution to cure a little boy. However, this swift rush will not be synonymous with peace, as enemies old and new will haunt you.
The trailer allows us to once again see the technical gap that exists between the first opus and this one, which promises to be much more beautiful than its illustrious ancestor. The sets will also be much more diverse, with near-paradise landscapes that will contrast with the grim ruins that A Plague Tale: Innocence has accustomed its fans to.
The final verdict on A Plague Tale: Requiem is coming soon as the game is scheduled to release on October 18, 2022 on Windows PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S (and day one on Game Pass) and Switch in the cloud. .
