A Plague Tale: Innocence is the brand new own-IP title from Asobo Studio, bringing their veterancy in game development to a moving story of adventure and bonding through the darkest hours of history. In today’s Story Trailer, see just a glimpse of the heartbreaking tale of young Amicia and her brother Hugo, on the run from the Black Death, a plague of rats, the Inquisition, and worse besides. Today also marks the beginning of pre-orders on all platforms for A Plague Tale: Innocence, set to release on PS4, Xbox One and PC on May 14th.
The story begins in the Kingdom of France, as the Hundred Years’ War and emergence of the plague start to take a toll on the population. The De Rune family lives a still-peaceful, sheltered life in their castle and surrounding lands, but it can’t last…
Amicia and Hugo’s journey will take them to incredible places, some indescribably horrifying, others hauntingly beautiful, and many a mix of the two. The people they meet, and their fates, will shape their story – and it is unlikely either sibling would survive without the other. As they grow closer, the world gets harsher, and that bond becomes ever more vital.
Pre-orders are now available for digital and retail on consoles, and digital PC, for A Plague Tale: Innocence. Digital pre-orders come with alternative outfits and coats of arms for Amicia and Hugo, while retail ones have additional benefits depending on region – please check local listings for full details.
A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Pre-orders are available now.
