A Plague Tale: Innocence was one of 2019’s standout games, acclaimed for its superb storytelling and impressive graphical fidelity despite the humble size of the development team at Asobo Studio, so news of a sequel during today’s Xbox & Bethesda E3 2021 showcase is sure to have fans in a jubilant mood. Particularly so because A Plague Tale: Requiem looks utterly epic, promising to deliver a grander and more ambitious adventure than its predecessor.
As you’ll see in the trailer below, A Plague Tale: Requiem seems as though we’ll see an older Beatrice and Hugo in the next chapter of their story to battle the evil forces attempting to unleash Hugo’s power to gain political control over the region. And yes, there are lots of rats.
A Plague Tale: Requiem will launch in 2022, according to today’s trailer, and it will be available via Xbox Game Pass. It is not a console exclusive, and so it should be available on PlayStation hardware as well as Xbox and PC.
Twinfinite reviewed the original A Plague’s Tale back in 2019 and was thoroughly impressed, scoring it 4.5/5 and concluding that it is “a late-generation gem that shouldn’t be missed by anyone with even a passing interest.”
