Asobo Studio takes us one last time behind the scenes of A Plague Tale: Innocence, their new own-IP title scheduled for release on May 14 of this year. Once again, discover more about the forging of this incredible game by a no-less incredible team, with the webseries’ third episode, Children of the Plague, available now.
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.
Learn much more about both foes in this episode, Children of the Plague. The full webseries is now available.
A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
