In 2019 players will be taken to medieval France during the darkest moments in history, the Black Death, and witness the horrors through the eyes of orphaned siblings Amicia and Hugo De Rune in “A Plague Tale: Innocence”.
The game by Asobo Studios combines adventure, stealth, and action as the De Rune siblings are escaping the Inquisition as well as avoiding hoards of ravenous rats! The rats (much like during the actual Plague) play a big role during gameplay. The rats are afraid of light and fire which can be used to keep them at bay, but this could attract Inquisitors. In order to avoid being seen by your human foes, players will have to stick to the shadows but by being in the shadows the rats may come for you so it’s safe to say this game will keep you on your toes.
The game will be in third-person and the only real weapons Amicia has at her disposal is a trusty slingshot and the creative childish minds to help get past Inquisitors or cause them to fall victims to the horde of rats. Amicia and Hugo will have to rely on each other as well as other orphans they come across as they venture through abandoned castles, villages, catacombs, battlefields, and forests.
“A Plague Tale Innocence” will scurry like rats into stores in 2019 and will be available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
