Gamescom 22: Check out the new gameplay overview for A Plague Tale: Requiem

The highly-anticipated sequel to Innocence, A Plague Tale: Requiem is on the way for an October release. And as such, it’s also at Gamescom 2022.

Playing the plague

Embark on Hugo and Amicia’s next journey and venture south of 14th century France before setting sail to a mysterious island in the Mediterranean Sea. Brave a terrible fate and find a cure for Hugo’s illness thanks to Amicia’s new resources—including the use of alchemy to manipulate fire, the long-distance power of a crossbow, her cunning use of terrain, and her ability to wrestle out of an enemy’s grasp. Choose to strike from the shadows or unleash hell with the help of Hugo’s new powers: to perceive surrounding enemies’ movements while moving stealthily and manipulate hordes of rats to decimate entire squads of soldiers.

Focus Entertainment press release

In addition to this first look at the game’s play, Focus Entertainment is planning a big Gamescom for A Plague Tale: Requiem. The show itself kicks off on the 24th, and the publisher will showcase the game with a playable demo right at the booth (Hall 8.1, Stand B-051 – C-058). If you’re going, make sure to stop by for that.

But there’s more, as a behind the scenes video series will launch for Requiem too. That’ll be starting on August 30th. Look for it to include “exclusive interviews with developers from Asobo Studio”. And of course, that set of videos will also lead into the game’s actual retail launch, on October 18th.
