Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Asobo Studio today released the third and final episode in their webseries for A Plague Tale: Innocence. With the first and second episodes introducing you to the characters and the unforgiving world they share, Children of the Plague focuses on their nemeses: the unnatural rat plague that swarms across medieval France and the Inquisition relentlessly hunting Hugo and his sister Amicia.
Death and disease follow in the wake of the plague rats, and not one person - clergy, persecutor, royalty, or peasant - is safe. While for Asobo rats were second to the main characters and the narrative focus, they became an integral part to the game’s structure and a core part of the experience, influencing every aspects of the design. The inquisition has begun to fight back, and their equipment is specific for stopping the plague, using light and armour to keep the rats at bay.
A Plague Tale: Innocence releases on the 14th of May on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
