A Plague Tale Requiem, announced the launch date with a gameplay trailer

A Plague Tale: Requiem saw it recently on the occasion of the Summer Game Fest, and precisely of the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase. On that occasion, however, no launch date was announced.

We, therefore, expected to have to wait a bit before the game returned to show itself, but today a new and full-bodied trailer of the game published by Focus Home Interactive and developed by Asobo Studio was released. And together with the gameplay video, the release date also arrives on October 18, 2022.

Pre-orders for A Plague Tale: Requiem is already open for all versions: the game will be released on PS5, Xbox Series X | S (where it will be available from day one on Game Pass ), and PC. Different speech for the version dedicated to Nintendo Switch, which will arrive in an as yet unknown future.

The trailer shows us some exciting sequences as the two protagonists, Amicia and little Hugo, must cross hostile territory in an attempt to escape from the soldiers who try to capture them.

In the twelve minutes of gameplay, it clearly emerges that the interaction between the two characters and their skills will be a key element of the game both from a narrative point of view and regards the game design solutions adopted by the development team in the construction of the levels.

The player will be called to interpret the situation in which he finds himself by choosing different approaches and favoring – at least in this initial phase – a stealth strategy, even if in some cases the clash with the enemies will prove inevitable.

As far as the technical level of the game is concerned, given that it is a next-gen title, the work done by Asobo Studios (which is not surprisingly the team of wonders behind the impressive Microsoft Flight Simulator ) already seems excellent.

Finally, the Collector’s Edition was also presented for those who are not satisfied with the simple physical or digital version.
