CM – Just expect a tidal wave of rats in A Plague Tale: Requiem next year

Who could forget dear Rat Boy? As revealed on Xbox and Bethsda E3 2021, next year A Plague Tale: Requiem brings us the further adventures of the rat whisperer Hugo and his looping sister Amicia.

Little is known about this sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence, except that it is a direct sequel and will again feature the medieval French siblings who « do anything to survive a brutal, callous world ».

The trailer shows an older Hugo and Amicia, possibly in a different one , more Mediterranean climate. The south of France was often unusually rainy and muddy in the first game. There is also a massive tidal wave of rats. For example, do you remember the glistening blood that came out of the elevators? It is, but all rats. Hugo’s staring eyes in the header image look annoyed because he’s probably looking at a bunch of hungry rats.

If you’ve played the first Plague Tale you’ll know that things got pretty brutal indeed, so is more Brutality only the gilding of the lily. Asobo Studio and Focus Home brought us a game that was part puzzle, part stealth, and part terrifying survival adventure. Hugo and Amicia were driven from their home by inquisitors, and a plague embodied in a meandering rat river consumed any meat they came in contact with. It was satisfying using torches and other sources of light to push and pull these swarms around (so they could eat bad guys alive, heh). You can probably expect more of that in Requiem.

It was less satisfying to watch most of Amicia’s and Hugo’s friends die in various horrific ways, but look – you win some, you lose some.

That is everything we have at Requiem for the time being, but keep an ear out for the pitter pattern of tiny rats in 2022 when it appears in Game Pass.

E3 2021 will take place from June 12th to 15th other events around it. For more really useful information on the entire virtual shebang, check out our E3 stream schedule and visit our E3 2021 hub to keep up to date with the news.
