Asobo Studio gave us a surprise hit back in late spring 2019. That was the introduction to Amicia de Rune and her younger brother Hugo in A Plague Tale Innocence which is set in the 14th Century during the French Inquisition. We received confirmation of a sequel from last summer that’s set for a 2022 launch and called A Plague Tale: Requiem.
Before today we hadn’t seen much on the game and rumors suggested a June 17th release date. That has since been and gone and A Plague Tale: Requiem never launched. Since then publisher had announced a stream for June 23rd to give some information on the game.
A Plague Tale: Requiem And What We Know Now
Prior to the event, we heard Asobo is working on graphical features just for PC. This will be the game taking advantage of Nvidia RTX ray-tracing and DLSS. This is what PCGamen said.
A Plague Tale Requiem will launch later this year, and we now know that the game will support Nvidia DLSS and ray tracing. This is the first time either technology has made an appearance in the stealth game series, and makes a GeForce RTX GPU an ideal choice to run the sequel.
As for when we can play A Plague Tale: Requiem, well it is coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. So for the date make a note of 18th October. We also get an extended look at gameplay as seen in the trailer below.
The game is also coming to the Nintendo Switch. However, it will be a cloud-based release. For Xbox users, it will be playable as part of Game Pass at launch. If you haven’t played the original it’s very much worth a look and has been upgraded to support the newer consoles.
