Asobo Studio has revealed that its long-awaited adventure game A Plague Tale: Innocence will take players to medieval-era France on May 14, 2019.
The team dropped the news today alongside the first episode of a new webseries delving into the project’s development.
That episode, titled Roots of Innocence, shows off never-before seen footage from the game, as well as exploring some of the themes the narrative will explore. At the forefront of the narrative is the question of who protagonists Amicia and Hugo will grow up to be in this dangerous world.
Players take the role of Amicia as she and her younger brother set out on a journey across the countryside following the slaughter of their parents. During this quest, the pair must avoid both the plague-carrying rats and members of the Inquisition, but have the ability to turn these two obstacles against one another at points.
A Plague Tale: Innocence was recently recognised as one of OnlySP’s most anticipated games of 2019, so today’s news has the team very excited.
The game will launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
