Asobo Studio and Focus Entertainment has lifted the wraps off the debut gameplay trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem, which showcases everything from beautifully detailed environments to brutal combat. There’s also swarms of rats returning, which you’d expect if you played the first game.
In this new trailer, as Robert Louis Stevenson’s poem “Requiem” sets the tone, witness the first glimpses of Amicia and Hugo’s epic adventure in a brutal, breathtaking world twisted by supernatural forces. After escaping their devastated homeland, Amicia and Hugo journey far south to new regions and vibrant cities.
The game picks up as Amicia and Hugo attempt to start a new life and control the latter’s curse, which reawakens, bringing death and destruction in the form of floods of devouring rats. With no choice left, the pair travel to a prophesied island believed to hold the key to Huge’s condition, and must become numerous foes and challenges using weapons, tools, and unearthly powers.
Check out the trailer below.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is scheduled for release on PS5, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X/S in 2022.
