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.

New Gameplay Trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem Marks the End of Innocence https://www.gameskinny.com/l7uwu/new-gameplay-trailer-for-a-plague-tale-requiem-marks-the-end-of-innocence https://www.gameskinny.com/l7uwu/new-gameplay-trailer-for-a-plague-tale-requiem-marks-the-end-of-innocence Mon, 13 Jun 2022 12:32:07 -0400 Jonathan Moore

A Plague Tale: Requiem, the direct sequel to 2019's A Plague Tale: Innocence, debuted a new gameplay trailer over the weekend as part of the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase during Summer Games Fest 2022. While it's not the first time fans have seen Amicia and Hugo in action on their new adventure in southern France, it's more action-packed than the trailer shown during The Game Awards 2021

Captured on Xbox Series X, the trailer starts by highlighting the varied environments the pair will travel through, from dark villages with dead birds hanging from the trees to vibrant camps full of life, seemingly far away from the touch of the rat plague. It quickly slides into grimmer, grittier violence than we've seen before, where Amicia uses much more than just a sling and wits to survive. She stabs and chokes enemies in her path and shoots them down from afar with a crossbow. 

There's still stealth in A Plague Tale Requiem; Amicia and Hugo can't take everyone head-on, and sometimes hiding under a table, creeping through tall grass, or causing a distraction is the better bet. But it's obvious the pair have grown up and changed since the first game's events. Amicia is "tired of being afraid," and the trailer is, after all, dubbed "End of Innocence." Though, Amicia will have her internal conflicts along the way. 

A Plague Tale: Requiem will launch for PC, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, PS5, and Nintendo Switch (as a Cloud version). There's still no release date for the game, though developer Focus Entertainment has teased a reveal for June 23 during an extended gameplay event. The Xbox and Bethesda presentation confirmed that all games shown would release within the "next year," Requiem being one of them. Pre-orders are available now.

A Plague Tale Requiem Continues Hugo and Amicia's Story https://www.gameskinny.com/rjv89/a-plague-tale-requiem-continues-hugo-and-amicias-story https://www.gameskinny.com/rjv89/a-plague-tale-requiem-continues-hugo-and-amicias-story Sun, 13 Jun 2021 15:46:21 -0400 Josh Broadwell

Focus Home Interactive is officially making A Plague Tale 2, and it's called A Plague Tale: Requiem. Set for release in 2022, A Plague Tale: Requiem is a direct sequel to Innocence and follows Amicia and Hugo.

Focus Home announced A Plague Tale: Requiem during the Xbox/Bethesda E3 2021 showcase and said it will release on Game Pass when it launches. For now, we know A Plague Tale: Requiem will release on Xbox Series X|S and PC. It was also confirmed in a press release following the reveal that the game will be coming to PS5 and Nintendo Switch via "Nintendo's cloud streaming technology." 

The Plague Tale: Requiem trailer gives away very little, but what it does show is evocative and full of contrasts. Waves of rats flow through the streets, Hugo is on his own, Amicia is facing her own challenges, and at some point, they venture a beautiful, sun-lit land of flowers and peace.

We noticed mention of A Plague Tale sequel in a post-credits Easter egg for A Plague Tale: Innocence. And the sequel was rumored to be in development in late 2019. According to that report, which was picked up by us and other industry publications, A Plague Tale 2 was allegedly meant to be revealed in 2020, but that didn't come to pass. While there's no definitive release date outside of the 2022 window, it looks like fans won't have to wait much longer.

A Plague Tale 2 Reportedly in Development https://www.gameskinny.com/lnnae/a-plague-tale-2-reportedly-in-development https://www.gameskinny.com/lnnae/a-plague-tale-2-reportedly-in-development Thu, 05 Dec 2019 10:01:13 -0500 Jason Coles

A Plague Tale 2 appears to be in development, at least according to a new report from Xbox Squad. This should be exciting news for fans of A Plague Tale: Innocence, including our very own reviewer, who found it to be a worthwhile experience, even if it did have its flaws. 

According to Xbox Squad, A Plague Tale 2 will be officially revealed in 2020, but won't be released until 2022. All of this info also apparently comes directly from a higher-up at developer Focus Home Interactive. 

Considering that release date, it means A Plague Tale 2 will almost definitely be a next-gen title. Just think of all the rats you can have on-screen using the power of an Xbox Scarlett or PS5. 

While reports of this nature can sometimes be a little misleading or incorrect, if something gets enough traction, then the chances are that it's true. Having other industry sites like Eurogamer reporting on this really helps add credence to the report. 

If you're looking to get stuck in A Plague Tale: Innocence now that you know there will be a sequel, it's probably worth sticking around after the credits for what appears to be even more confirmation of a sequel. 

Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more news and information on A Plague Tale 2 as it develops.
