gameplay, release date… Towards a new masterpiece?

gameplay, release date… Towards a new masterpiece?

Our regions have talent, and Asobo Studio too. The Bordeaux studio recently presented A Plague Tale: Requiem to us through ten minutes of gameplay, and we are once again expecting a little gem.

[Mis à jour le 24 juin 2022 à 11h03] A Plague Tale isn’t the most famous franchise in video game history, but it’s probably already ringing in your ears. With its first installment, A Plague Tale: Innocence, considered one of the recent masterpieces of video games and multiple awards for its incredible storyline, intensely immersive gameplay and superb soundtrack, Asobo Studio has proven that he deserved his place in the big leagues. And Focus Entertainment understood this very well by re-engaging the machine for a second episode. It is this sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem, that we are talking about today. Showcased through 10 minutes of gameplay, the upcoming outing laid things flat, showing jaw-dropping graphical quality and armrest-pounding gameplay. Add to that the announcement of an official release date, and you will have the little scoop of this end of June.

If you’ve never had Plague Tale Innocence in your hands, you might wonder what exactly the game is about. It is a third-person action-adventure game with a heavy emphasis on stealth, driven by a dramatic storyline revolving around the quest of Amicia and her brother Hugo, in the heart of fourteenth-century France. But the Middle Ages is not always very rosy, it is even rather dark in the fourteenth century, right in the middle of the worst plague epidemic in the history of Humanity and at the height of the Hundred Years War. Suffice to say that the context has something to keep you in suspense. Especially since Amicia and Hugo are pursued by the Inquisition who believe the latter responsible for the epidemic because of his strange illness which also gives him supernatural abilities.

In this second part, we find our characters far from the Guyenne of the first opus, closer to the Mediterranean coasts in “new regions far to the south, where an island with two mountains calls”. Of course, Requiem continues its momentum by applying the same recipe, exploration, infiltration, rats and tears, all in breathtaking photorealistic environments. Requiem will also offer new mechanics, such as the ability to control rats or see through walls that we saw in the gameplay presentation. We also obviously expect a masterpiece in terms of writing and screenplay, and a historical reconstruction worthy of the greatest Assassin’s Creed.
