A Plague Tale: Innocence’s gripping narrative made it one of the standout hidden gems of 2019, and it’s getting a sequel next year. Today’s Microsoft showcase revealed a cinematic trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem that sets the table for another dark journey for the de Rune siblings.
The cinematic trailer doesn’t give too much away, but we hear protagonist Amicia de Rune conversing with an unknown man about her brother, Hugo. Fans will remember that Hugo is cursed with dark magic connected to a supernatural plague of ravenous rats. Will Amicia have to stop her own brother, who she says she’d “protect with her life?” We’re excited (though perhaps a bit apprehensive) to find out. Also of note: Amicia has a crossbow now, suggesting combat could be more involved compared to the largely stealth-focused gameplay for the previous game.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is launching sometime in 2022 for Xbox Series X/S and PC. It will launch day one on Xbox Game Pass as well. There’s no word yet if it’s coming to other platforms but we’ll update the story if anything changes on that front.
