While there are ton of new games here at E3 pulling us from one booth to the next, Focus Home Interactive and developer Asobo Studios has managed to also impress us with their upcoming new title A Plague Tale: Innocence. The game tells a grim and emotional story, sending players on a journey through medieval France, with gameplay blending adventure, action and stealth, supported by a compelling, moving story.
As the explained, players follow Amicia and her little brother Hugo, trying to survive a harsh, brutal world plagued by the Black Death. On the run from the Inquisition, and surrounded by unnatural swarms of rats that appeared with the Black Death, Amicia and Hugo embark on a rocky journey that will not leave them unscathed.
The rats swarm in uninterrupted waves throughout the Kingdom of France. In the disease-devastated villages, countryside and battlefields, they devour everything in their path, men and animals alike, to satisfy the endless hunger of their ever-increasing numbers. The faint glow of the flame Amicia holds appears to be the only thing that repels this uncontrollable and voracious mass’s relentless advance.
With full confidence we can say that the game is coming along quite well and at this point it is safe to say that more than 90% of the games here at E3 look amazing and A Plague Tale: Innocence is no exception. A Plague Tale: Innocence already looks fantastic!
Plague Tale: Innocence arrives on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.
