New A Plague Tale: Innocence Trailer Shows Off Life in 12th Century France

June 13, 2018Written by Anthony Nash

Publisher Focus Home Interactive is busy showing off a ton of new games at E3 2018, and one of those, A Plague Tale: Innocence, has just received a brand new trailer. The game, which focuses on two siblings struggling through the brutal world of 12th century France, is currently in development and set to launch sometime in 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

The newest trailer for the game (above) gives us a more cinematic look at life in the 12th century. As one might guess, it’s not the greatest, as both players constantly struggle to avoid plague-infested rats that seem to be very hungry and very eager to spread the disease. With E3 2018 still ongoing, it’s very likely we’ll have more information on his game sooner rather than later, so make sure to stay tuned.

Here is a quick overview of A Plague Tale: Innocence, courtesy of Focus Home Interactive:

Join siblings Amicia and young Hugo, as they struggle through the heart of the brutal and ruthless world of 12th century France. The rats swarm in uninterrupted waves throughout the Kingdom of France. In the disease-devastated villages, countryside and battlefields, they devour everything in their path, men and animals alike, to satisfy the endless hunger of their ever-increasing numbers. The faint glow of the flame Amicia holds appears to be the only thing that repels this uncontrollable and voracious mass’s relentless advance…

A Plague Tale: Innocence tells a grim and emotional story, sending us on journey through medieval France, with gameplay blending adventure, action and stealth, supported by a compelling, moving story. Follow Amicia and her little brother Hugo, trying to survive a harsh, brutal world plagued by the Black Death. On the run from the Inquisition, and surrounded by unnatural swarms of rats that appeared with the Black Death, Amicia and Hugo embark on a rocky journey that will not leave them unscathed.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is set to launch sometime in 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
