A Plague Tale: Requiem will release later this year on October 18, 2022, for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S. There will also be a Nintendo Switch Cloud version, and the game will release on Game Pass on day one.
The news comes by way of a recent showcase streamed by developer Focus Entertainment, which, well, focused on the sequel to 2019’s A Plague Tale: Innocence. Roughly 10 mins of new gameplay was shown. You can watch that right here.
Focus also confirmed that the game would feature NVIDIA RTX and DLSS, and that two songs from the game’s soundtrack are available to purchase on composer Olivier Derivière’s Bandcamp page.
As we mentioned previously, it looks like innocence has truly been lost for Amicia and her brother, Hugo. The sequel is taking a more violent turn than the original, with Amicia having far more deadly combat options at her disposal. Though there’s still plenty of vibrance to balance it all out, it seems. Story details are still rather scant, though the newest gameplay video does provide a little more context to the game’s overall narrative.
A Plague Tale: Requiem was revealed during E3 2021 with a stark cinematic trailer, evoking the darkness the two siblings still face on their journey. A teaser of sorts for the sequel appeared in its predecessor, though only click through to see what it was if you’ve completed the original. Pre-orders are available now. Stay tuned for more as we approach October.
