16 minutes of uncut gameplay for A Plague Tale: Innocence
28 August 2018
Good news everyone! We have something special for you right here at Games news. Straight from Gamescom, we have 16 minutes of uncut gameplay for A Plague Tale: Innocence. This is a new indie developed game that relies more on survival elements and lateral thinking, rather than brute force. You play as Amicia, a young woman trying to escape the plague ridden cities with her little brother Hugo in early 14th century France. Amicia will be able to use elements such as fire to defend herself and Hugo from the swarms of deadly rats.
From what we can see, there's plenty to fear as hundreds of rats are rendered on screen and pose a tremendous threat.
A Plague Tale: Innocence, the upcoming adventure game developed by Asobo Studio for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, unleashes its hordes of rats in 16 minute-long, uncut gameplay video.
In this gameplay sequence, which was unveiled behind closed door to journalists at E3 last June, we follow Amicia and her young brother Hugo through a small portion of one of the game's chapters – the site of a brutal clash between the armies of France and England, currently locked in what will be known as the Hundred Years' War.
The story of A Plague Tale begins in 1349. Rats swarm in uninterrupted waves throughout the territory of France. In the plague-ridden villages, countryside and battlefields, this uncontrollable and voracious mass advances relentlessly. The creatures devour everything in their path, men and animals alike, to satisfy the endless hunger of their ever-increasing numbers. In the midst of hundreds of piled corpses, hordes of rats teem over the bodies and leave little hope for Amicia and Hugo to escape with their lives - the faint glow of the flame Amicia holds appears to be the only thing that repels A Plague Tale: Innocence’s swarming menace.
Check out the gameplay trailer below and stay tuned for more news on this epic, rat infested game, coming soon.
