A Plague Tale: Innocence
A new trailer for A Plague Tale: Innocence is out now and shows us more of the true monsters the kids will need to face in A Plague Tale
If you have been following along with A Plague Tale: Innocence up to now, then you may already know that there are going to be swarms of rats in the game and it would be easy to think of them as the true monsters of the game. They are out to devour our flesh and hinder all kinds of progress as we have seen in the past trailers. No one would fault you for that line of thinking. If you have been paying closer attention to the world in general and how Asobo Studio has been presenting this one, it will come as no surprise that the rats are not the truest of monsters in the game. What I am getting at here is that humans will be the bigger monsters in A Plague Tale and are the true horror to look out for. This is now backed up by the latest trailer for the game before May 14th when the game launches on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
We have seen in the past that the Inquisition is out there in force within A Plague Tale. They are also hunting down the children for their reasons in the world and causing all kinds of problems in general. It looks to go much deeper than just a few soldiers out there following orders and something a bit more sinister at play. Not too surprising given the setting of it all and the timeline they are following. It was a dark time in our real history and A Plague Tale is aiming to shine a light on that as well as offer up some interesting puzzles and stealth gameplay. Have a look to see just what I am getting at here and if it is shaping up to be a title you will want to dive right into.
A Plague Tale: Innocence — Monsters
A Plague Tale: Innocence — Monsters lurk behind every helmet and between every crack in A Plague Tale: Innocence, the poetic and harrowing dark adventure from Asobo Studio and Focus Home Interactive, is about to arrive on May 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Your enemies are everywhere — inside stately homes and lordly cathedrals, down to the very dregs of the world in cellars and basements. Showcased today in our new “Monsters” trailer, while the deadly swarms of rats consume all they come across, harrying Amicia and Hugo’s long journey, far more familiar foes pick their moment to strike with more care. The English army, local brigands and, worst of all, The Inquisition and their mysterious master, Vitalis. All pursue the siblings with a deadly enthusiasm, spurred on by unknown forces.
Lord Nicholas, the commander of the Inquisition’s forces, is the helmeted face of fear for the local populace under the boot heel of his army, and for Amicia and Hugo as they flee. He is brutal and uncompromising, willing to do whatever it takes to complete his mission to capture and return the siblings to his master. Strong, fast, with zealots at his every beck and call, he will be a formidable and merciless foe.
