A Plague Tale: Innocence: Screenshots Unveiled

Editor’s Note: this article was edited by OPNoobs staff for neutrality.

Hordes of rats ravage the Kingdom of France

A Plague Tale: Innocence, the upcoming adventure game developed by Asobo Studio, unleashes hordes of rats in a new series of images. Join orphan siblings, Amicia and young Hugo, as they struggle through the heart of a brutal and ruthless world in which millions of rats ravage the Kingdom of France - already beset by war and the Black Death.

1349 - Rats swarm in uninterrupted waves throughout the territory of France. In the disease-devastated villages, countryside and fields of battle, 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 today's images, witness just one of many desecrated sites that saw clashes between the armies of France and England. In the midst of hundreds of piled corpses, hordes of rats teem over the bodies and leave little hope for the survivors. In the midst of this chaos, Amicia and Hugo have just one chance of escaping 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.

A Plague Tale: Innocence arrives in 2019

Developed by Asobo Studio, A Plague Tale: Innocence will offer an adventure supported by an original scenario, with gameplay that blends action, adventure, and stealth phases. Follow our protagonists, Amicia and her little brother Hugo, both orphans and on the run from the terrifying Inquisition. Our young heroes will also need to survive against an even greater danger: supernatural swarms of rats that appeared with the great plague infecting across cities and countryside.

  • An original story featuring two young orphans on the run from the Inquisition during the Great Black Plague 
  • A gameplay that blends action, adventure and stealth phases. 
  • Survive against deadly swarms of rats ravaging everything in their path
