While developer Asobo Studio is currently recognized for the 2020 release of Microsoft Flight Simulator, the French developer was previously praised for the 2019 launch of A Plague Tale: Innocence. Since its inception, the title was instantly acknowledged for its gripping storytelling and involvement for detail to the worlds that the developer created for the game at the time.
But, there is certainly more in the series that could be told following the ending of the most recent game. So when Asobo Studio unveiled A Plague Tale: Requiem, players instantly knew that another massive release is on the way. Of course, the reveal taking place during the Xbox-Bethesda E3 Showcase also comes with the game shipping day one on Xbox Game Pass as well.
You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:
“After the original game’s epic finale to a heartbreaking story of resilience, players will embark on the emotional journey’s second chapter. They will follow Amicia and her brother Hugo on a perilous new quest, doing whatever it takes to survive a brutal, uncaring world,” Aurélie Belzanne, Head of Communication at Asobo Studio shares.
“A Plague Tale: Requiem is the direct sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. Previously, players lived the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending adventure through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo came to know and trust each other, as they struggled to survive against overwhelming odds and fight to find their place in the world.”
That was not the only announcement from Asobo Studio at the presentation on Sunday. Additionally the firm also unveiled the Xbox Series X|S version for Microsoft Flight Simulator with a tease for the following Top Gun update later for this fall. You can read the full report by heading here.
