A Plague Tale: Innocence is an upcoming action adventure game from developer Asobo Studio and publisher Focus Home Interactive, that takes place in 14th century France. It follows the story of two siblings, Amicia and Hugo, who attempt to survive the plague-ridden country.
Recently, Asobo Studio showed off eight minutes of gameplay from the upcoming title. We watch teenage Amicia stealthily making her way through a village to eventually reach a university. During her journey, we see her distract enemies by launching throwables at them or even throwing a rock at a hanging corpse to catch a guard’s attention.
Some light crafting is shown, as well as how rats are afraid of light. Amicia equips a torch to fend them off. Rats pose a deadly threat, and through this demo, we see her sneakily avoiding them or leading them feed on guards instead of herself.
A Plague Tale: Innocence arrives for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 14.
