[UPDATE]: The title of this article has been amended to more effectively communicate that this is a free trial build of A Plague Tale: Innocence, rather than the entire game.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive is giving players a chance to try their superb story-driven adventure game A Plague Tale: Innocence free of charge across all platforms today (PS4, Xbox One, PC).
The free demo allows players to experience the first chapter of Hugo and Amicia’s harrowing journey across medieval France, as the pair escape the clutches of a strange plague and a mysterious organization attempting to apprehend them.
If you aren’t up to speed, A Plague Tale launched earlier this year to a positive critical reception, commended for its excellent writing and narrative. Gameplay is a fairly basic affair, but there’s a nice mix of stealth, puzzle-solving, and basic combat to keep things interesting.
You can head to each platform’s respective digital store to find the free trial.
