A Plague Tale: Requiem Gameplay and Story
The sequel Requiem takes place a few months after the events of A Plague Tale: Innocence. The siblings, Amicia and Hug, are now relatively safe and have moved on from the nightmares of Guyenne. They are now exploring Bordeaux.
Hugo has acquired a strange affliction and they’re trying to find a cure for that. The bizarre condition is killing him and developing a unique bond with the swarm of rats at the same time. They manage to find a new home in a town with an expert promising to help them.
However, a secret order of alchemists decides that Hugo will be a great science experiment while the region is put under a plague-related lockdown. As Hugo’s condition worsens, he starts having dreams of a beautiful island where Amicia must go to find the cure.
The game then becomes a long quest to find this dream island that Amicia, the protector of Hugo, must find regardless of whatever it takes. The core remains the same. It’s still a puzzle-stealth-survival adventure featuring plenty of terrifying moments.
The original game received loads of appreciation and players loved the experience. We are expecting the same from the sequel. Are you looking forward to playing it?
