If you want something a little dark and disturbing today how about A Plague Tale: Innocence by developer Asobo Studio. The game footage that we have seen so far follows Amicia and her little brother through 14th century France. The stealth/adventure game tells a story of dark times in history as the two characters must survive against rats carrying the Black Death all while evading the Inquisition’s soldiers. A Plague Tale: Innocence looks to draw you in with emotion and then crush you with disgusting rats and the fear of certain death. There is a mystery here with why are they running and what secrets do they know but for me it all comes back to them damn rats. Gross, talk about the creepy vibe being strong in this one.
I think using the brother and sister angle here will give the game that tight emotional feeling when it comes to survival. You will want the best for each character and we all know that isn’t always the case in these types of games. Prepare to be in a tense battle with your feelings.
The game is set for release in 2019 on PC, PS4 and Xbox. I’m sure we will see more gameplay before then but for now we have this amazing video from Gamescom. Check out this key features of the game and then watch the gameplay video below.
