An extensive new trailer for A Plague Tale: Requiem was shown during The Game Awards, showing the first gameplay footage.

The sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence was revealed earlier this year. In the sequel, the main characters Hugo and Amicia return, as does the swarm of rats. Players follow Amicia and her brother Hugo on a new adventure as they try to survive.

The first game is set in France in the year 1349, when the country is ravaged by the Black Death. Amicia must protect her younger brother Hugo while the two are pursued by the Inquisition and try to survive in the unforgiving world.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is coming to Xbox Series X and S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PC in 2022. The game will also be available on Game Pass immediately upon launch. The game will be released via cloud streaming on Nintendo Switch.
