Developer Asobo Studio released a new plot trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem ahead of its October release.
A new trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem has been released by the developer ahead of the game’s launch next month. Set six months after the events of the first game, A Plague Tale: Requiem reintroduces players to Amicia and Hugo De Rune as they embark on a new adventure in a world overrun with rats.
Asobo Studio recently confirmed that players can expect A Plague Tale: Requiem to run for 15-18 hours, significantly longer than the original’s nearly 10 hours. However, the team stressed that the tracking is not on a larger scale for its sake, but that timing fits the story. In support of this message, a new story trailer has been released to reveal what gamers can expect on October 18.
In the latest trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem, players get to witness the return of Amicia and Hugo De Rune as they settle into new lives in Provence, France. The happiness seemed to disappear quickly when thousands of rats swarmed the village, bringing with it a black death and a mysterious illness that struck the younger brother. Viewers then get a taste of the game as Amicia is seen sneaking past multiple enemies before taking them down, while also introducing new weapons like smoke bombs that extinguish torches to attract mice to them. enemy positions.
Fans of 2019’s A Plague Tale: Innocence will also be pleased to hear that Hugo will be getting an expanded role in Requiem. The younger De Rune brother will be able to use his powers to control the rats ravaging France, but it seems his power is more than that. The latest trailer hints that his powers have increased a lot compared to the previous one, as he sees places that players will need to explore in order to explore in the game’s storyline.
Despite the new trailer, details on exactly how the story progresses in Requiem are still hazy, however, the changes don’t seem to be just superficial. Asobo focused on developing Requiem on current generation consoles, allowing them to make changes like displaying hundreds of thousands of mice in real time, something that was not possible on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One consoles.
It is worth mentioning that the original game has focused so much more on narrative elements that it is considered one of the most emotional games on the Xbox Series X/S. It remains to be seen how the extended playtime and new gameplay mechanics will affect the overall Requiem experience, but fans will have a short wait for the next Plague Tale game.
