A Plague Tale Requiem was shown as one of this year’s Triebca Games Spotlight choices at Summer Games Fest. And, while we didn’t get a deep new look at the game, we did see some story scenes that showcase how Hugo and Amicia have grown since the first game in 2019. And, the gameplay is still going to be stealth-focused despite Hugo and Amicia being both slightly older here than they were in A Plague Tale Innocence.
The game does have polished-up animations for the more action-focused combat and stealth kills, but Asobo has said in the Tribeca Showcase that the game is still hooked on the need to survive. But, that action will serve the narrative core of Amicia, her relation to the violence she has had to endure and her relation to the world around her.
Overall, the game is looking significantly better than the original with huge visual upgrades and increased fidelity on Amicia and Hugo and the environments they are exploring.
We should hopefully see more of the game at the Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase on Sunday, with the game hitting Game Pass. We may even get an A Plague Tale Requiem release date. But, for now you can check out the section from the Tribeca Games Showcase:
This showcase from A Plague Tale Requiem is just one of several to come out of the Tribeca Games Showcase – and that’s not the only showcase taking place this summer. If you want to keep track of everything going on, you can check out our Summer Game Fest 2022 schedule right here. We also have a list of the best PS5 survival games and the best Xbox Series X survival games here, if this has tickled your fancy.
