A Plague Tale: Requiem Gets Gameplay Overview Trailer & Playable Demo at Gamescom

A Plague Tale: Requiem, the sequel to the critically acclaimed A Plague Tale: Innocence by Asobo Studio and Focus Entertainment, has revealed a new Gameplay Overview Trailer. The game will also be present at Gamescom from August 24–28, with a demo to play at the event on the same dates. Additionally, Focus Entertainment will launch its “In Focus” behind-the-scenes video series on August 30 to present the making of A Plague Tale: Requiem ahead of its release on October 18!

Embark on Hugo and Amicia’s next journey and venture south of 14th century France before setting sail to a mysterious island in the Mediterranean Sea. Brave a terrible fate and find a cure for Hugo’s illness thanks to Amicia’s new resources—including the use of alchemy to manipulate fire, the long-distance power of a crossbow, her cunning use of terrain, and her ability to wrestle out of an enemy’s grasp. Choose to strike from the shadows or unleash hell with the help of Hugo’s new powers: to perceive surrounding enemies’ movements while moving stealthily and manipulate hordes of rats to decimate entire squads of soldiers.

Attendees will get to play one of the first chapters of the game at Gamescom from August 24–28. The public will find the demo at Microsoft’s booth (Hall 8.1, Stand B-051 – C-058). It will offer Gamescom visitors the opportunity to play the same level shown at the Tribeca Festival for those who missed it in June. Another demo will be shared with press attending Gamescom, letting them experience the level seen in the Extended Gameplay Trailer hands on.

Finally, Focus Entertainment launches its “In Focus” behind-the-scenes video series on August 30, sharing exclusive interviews with developers from Asobo Studio, the team behind A Plague Tale: Requiem.

A Plague Tale: Requiem will release October 18 on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation®5, PC, and in Cloud Version on Nintendo Switch. The game will also be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass for Console, PC and Cloud.

I've been an avid gamer since I stumbled upon ZORK running in my local Radio Shack in 1980. Ten years later I was working for Sierra Online. Since then I've owned nearly every game system and most of the games to go with them. Not sure if 40+ years of gaming qualifies me to write reviews, but I do it anyway.
