If you happen to be lucky enough to be attending Gamescom from August 24-28, you can get your hands on a demo of A Plague Tale: Requiem, the upcoming action-adventure sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. If not, you can still learn more about the upcoming title with Focus Entertainment’s In Focus, a behind-the-scenes video series, on August 30 to present the making of A Plague Tale: Requiem. But before any of that can take place, you can go ahead and watch the over-five-minute gameplay overview trailer released by Focus Entertainment.
A Plague Tale: Requiem picks up a few months after Innocence, at the start of summer. “Embark on Hugo and Amicia’s next journey and venture south of 14th century France before setting sail to a mysterious island in the Mediterranean Sea. Brave a terrible fate and find a cure for Hugo’s illness thanks to Amicia’s new resources—including the use of alchemy to manipulate fire, the long-distance power of a crossbow, her cunning use of terrain, and her ability to wrestle out of an enemy’s grasp.” A Plague Tale: Innocence was a story-heavy adventure title, and Requiem looks to follow that tradition.
A Plague Tale: Requiem will release on October 18 on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation5, PC, and in Cloud Version on Nintendo Switch.
