Three years since the launch of the first game, A Plague Tale is now only two months out from the release of its sequel Requiem, and Focus Entertainment has just offered a fresh look at its gameplay over on YouTube. Set following the events of A Plague Tale: Innocence, the new title will reunite players with Hugo and Amicia, who are now venturing through the south of France during the 14th century before setting sail to a mysterious island in the Mediterranean Sea in hopes of finding a cure for Hugo's illness.
While the game will retain a large part of its stealth elements, there'll also be new mechanics such as Hugo's new powers, which Focus describes as the ability "to perceive surrounding enemies' movements while moving stealthily and manipulate hordes of rats to decimate entire squads of soldiers."
For fans of the franchise, A Plague Tale: Requiem will arrive on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC on October 18. Those who attend this year's Gamescom will also be able to try out the first chapter of the game.
Elsewhere in gaming, Square Enix has announced that Winter Soldier Bucky Barnes will be joining Marvel's Avengers as the next playable character.
