Phew, we’re still trying to catch up with Gamescom goodies today. One of the little gems from the week that’s been flying under the radar is A Plague Tale: Innocence. It’s a new adventure game from Focus Home Interactive and Asobo Studio, an outfit the appears to have spent of its history porting Disney games to various platforms.
We’re guessing Asobo grey very sick and tired of Mickey’s stupid mousey face because they’ve made a dramatic about-turn with A Plague Tale: Innocence. Misery is the order of the day here, served with a side salad of pestilence, famine, and voracious hordes of rats.
They’ve dropped an extensive gameplay trailer for A Plague Tale, showing a 16-minute portion of the game that was previously only shown behind closed doors at E3. In it, Amicia and her younger brother Hugo are traveling together through the plague-ravaged and war-torn French countryside. It’s perhaps not the most uplifting sight, although there’s no denying A Plague Tale has a gorgeous look to its deathly landscape.
Gameplay in A Plague Tale appears to be focused on adventuring alongside like puzzle-solving and stealth elements. You know the drill by now - light the flames to scare the baddies away and clear the path.
Focus Home Interactive has penciled in A Plage Tale: Innocence for a 2019 launch on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
