The five-minute sequence highlights several new features, including new combat options that were never an option to players in the often stiff and rudimentary original outing. Stealth, too, which is the backbone of the entire A Plague Tale experience appears to be far more robust, both in how it controls and the depth of main protagonist Amicia’s bag of tricks to get out of sticky situations.

There are also crafting and basic progression systems this time around, by the looks of it, the UI for which only flashes up very briefly on screen but reminds me of The Last of Us with its crafting station.

As previously reported, A Plague Tale: Requiem is set to launch on Oct. 18, 2022, for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. The Switch version will run via cloud streaming.
