A Plague Tale Innocence was one of the most critically acclaimed indie games of the last few years, with its high level of polish, heartfelt narrative, and terrifying rat-filled ruins. The A Plague Tale Requiem release date gave players another excellent narrative to explore, and refined features to get through its dingy world.

This exceptional sequel followed up from where the first game left off as Amicia and Hugo try to survive as they explore new environments and locales. Hugo’s powers have also reawakened, death and destruction are returning in a flood of devouring rats spreading throughout the land.

A Plague Tale Requiem release date

A Plague Tale Requiem’s was released on October 17, 2022, for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. A cloud version for Nintendo Switch players also debuted on the same day. For fans of the franchise, this wait marks a three-year gap since the game’s predecessor, A Plague Tale Innocence.

A Plague Tale Requiem Gameplay

One of the best chunks of A Plague Tale Requiem gameplay we saw was at the Focus Showcase on the game, which dived deep into the story and gameplay shifts with the sequel.

However, the overview trailer for the game went into more detail about the systems, characters, and the gameplay and story of the game. This time around, Amicia is equipped with a few new weapons to help her in combat, such as a knife, stones, and even a crossbow to deal with both human and rat foes. Bolts, throwing pots, and rocks can be infused alchemical buffs, allowing you to gain the upper hand in specific combat scenarios.

As you may know from playing the previous game, combat isn’t all you need to do to survive. Stealth elements are present in the game, and you’ll need to use your wits to sneak past foes undetected. Unlike the first game, you won’t die instantly from getting hit by an enemy, and you can return to stealth mode after you’ve been initially detected.

Using light sources to stave off rats is essential to survival, too. If you don’t use light to ward them away, you’ll be devoured by hordes of plague infested rats within seconds. A pretty grizzly way to go.
