A Plague Tale: Requiem Release Date, Platforms, and Everything We Know

The rats come out to play for the A Plauge Tale: Requiem release date

Single-player games, while lacking the social elements modern gaming is known for, have remained an important part of the industry. Even as multiplayer-focused titles continue to release, the field has yielded excellent options of all sizes, including Marvel’s Spider-ManStray, and a new arc in the God of War series. Asobo Studios and Focus Entertainment continue that tradition this October, bringing us a sequel to the acclaimed A Plague Tale: Innocence, which was released back in 2019. If you like stealth and horror, stay on the lookout for the A Plague Tale: Requiem release date.

A Plague Tale: Requiem Release Date

A Plague Tale: Requiem is scheduled to release on October 18, 2022, on PC via Steam, as well as PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. Players can pre-order the game on select platforms. 

What is A Plague Tale: Requiem?

Plague Tale: Requiem is an action-adventure game emphasizing story, stealth, and horror. The story centers on Amicia and her brother Hugo in a fairly accurate depiction of Earth in the late Middle Ages, right until the Black Plague goes from a conventional, far-reaching disease to a literal swarm of rats devouring all in their path. Amicia and Hugo have since left the setting of France where the series began, but trouble has followed.

Amicia must engage her opponents, armor-plated soldiers, with cunning and unconventional tactics if she wishes to succeed. She is still armed with her sling that can trigger different effects based on the ammunition but now sports a crossbow as well. 

Using the rats themselves to solve scenarios is not out of the question either, especially after the reveal of Hugo’s supernatural abilities in the previous game. They offer not just an overwhelming tide of destruction but also improved senses that augment the stealth-oriented gameplay the original was built on.
