Fans hoping for a new look at A Plague Tale: Requiem had their prayers answered during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, as Focus Home Interactive and Asobo Studio delivered the first-ever gameplay trailer.
The trailer follows Amicia and Hugo from A Plague Tale: Innocence as they travel through a world suffering from the plague. Stealth and action gameplay are both shown, including a moment where Amicia burns a shack with a flaming object she throws with a sling.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is set after the events of Innocence, as the brother and sister duo travel from Aquitaine from the first game to another area of France, Provence, while dealing with sickness within the family. In the official post on Xbox Wire, Requiem’s lead writer Sébastien Renard says that Provence will give players a “new, more colorful, and more vibrant palette” that creates a “sharper contrast between the harsh reality of the medieval setting, in which terrible events are happening, and beautiful, sometimes uncharted environments.”
A Plague Tale: Requiem is slated to launch in 2022 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
