The release date for A Plague Tale: Requiem has been revealed for October 18, and there’s a new 10-minute gameplay segment to go along with the announcement.
Ahead of the October 18 release date for A Plague Tale: Requiem, pre-orders are now available on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox stores. As for the extended game, you can check out 10 minutes of all-new action just below, starring returning siblings Amicia and Hugo as they travel through France once again.
A Plague Tale: Requiem certainly looks bigger than its predecessor, and this game proves it. After a sequence strolling through lush wilderness, the two brothers take an unfortunate turn to a quarry, where some local soldiers want nothing more than to capture them.
The situation quickly requires Amicia to take a stealthy approach, one that players will no doubt be used to since A Plague Tale: Innocence. Hugo’s brother and guardian has plenty of tools to work with, including the ability to highlight enemies and their movement through walls and objects, as well as a deadly new crossbow.
The second half of the gameplay demo shows a wide open space outside the quarry, larger than the vast majority of areas in A Plague Tale: Innocence. However, as the sequel’s first trailer showed earlier this month, this new game appears to be much more violent and combat-oriented than its predecessor.
Finally, Nvidia is bundling its DLSS and RTX features into A Plague Tale: Requiem for PC, so you can enjoy ray tracing and improved frame rates. When Asobo’s new game launches later this year in October, it will be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one for PC, Xbox consoles, and cloud devices alike.
