Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released this May. It’s an action/adventure/survival game about two orphans trying to survive in medieval France. Rat plagues, lack of hygiene, and the Spanish Inquisition are just some of the obstacles Amicia and Hugo will face as they journey through forests, catacombs, abandoned battlefields and, if they’re fortunate, villages.
In advance of the game’s release, Asobo has produced a series of short videos introducing the public to the world of A Plague Tale: Innocence. The first video is all about Amicia and Hugo:
The second video details the world the orphans are trying to survive in, and the real-world locations the development team used as inspiration to recreate the Dark Ages.
The third and final video introduces you to the villains and obstacles the pair are up against, both human and rodent.
Far from flat protagonists, Amicia and Hugo will react to events around them and express vivid emotion, even when you’re controlling the game. Gameplay includes elements of action, exploration and stealth….we expect it to be a lot like The Last Of Us, except it takes place in a wasteland that actually existed.
A Plague Tale: Innocence will be out for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC May 14.
