A Plague Tale: Requiem has launched today across PC, Xbox, PlayStation and even Nintendo Switch today, bringing the next chapter in the adventure of Amicia and Hugo de rune through alternate history France. The follow-up to A Plague Tale: Innocence, Requiem brings improved visuals and continues the story told across the brutal 14th century.
The sequel also comes to Game Pass for Console, PC and Cloud, effectively making A Plague Tale pretty much playable anywhere you want. The RPG follows-up the award winning A Plague Tale: Innocence, seeing our main characters explore southern France, and even into the Mediterranean itself, as Amicia and Hugo brave the dangers of the brutal, medieval world.
"The heartrending story of Amicia and Hugo continues: embark on their next journey and venture to the south of 14th century France and beyond, setting sail for a mysterious island in the Mediterranean Sea. Brave a terrible fate, looking for the cure to heal Hugo’s illness, and discover the cost of saving those you love in a desperate struggle for survival within a dark, plague-ridden medieval world twisted by otherworldly forces."
The new entry sees a more open environment, allowing for a bit more exploration and freedom whilst playing. Asobo and Focus Home are saying that A Plague Tale: Requiem is set up for both returning players and newcomers, while the fact that the sequel is only on next-generation systems (barring the Cloud streaming on Switch) helps to push the visuals even further. Indeed, A Plague Tale: Requiem also takes advantage of the newest PC tech, with DLSS 3 support for Nvidia 40-series GPUs coming at launch.
