One of the big surprises of Xbox and Bethesda’s conference was the reveal and confirmation of A Plague’s Tale: Requiem, the sequel to the critically-acclaimed A Plague’s Tale: Innocence.
It appears the game will continue to follow the journey of Amicia and Hugo but most importantly the game has been confirmed as coming to Xbox Game Pass at launch which is another terrific boon for the subscription service.
A Plague’s Tale: Requiem launches sometime in 2022.
The description from the Xbox blog:
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.
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.
A Plague’s Tale: Requiem releases for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, and Nintendo Switch through cloud streaming.
