A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released on May 14

Announced in 2017 by Asobo, a studio based in Bordeaux, A Plague Tale: Innocence is a game that will plunge you back into the darkest hours of the Kingdom of France. And the game has just gone gold, which means the development of the game is over. It only remains to wait until May 14th to finally discover A Plague Tale: Innocence.

The game takes place in the Middle Ages in 1348 while France is ravaged by the Great Plague. You will follow the story of two siblings, Amicia and Hugo de Rune, chased by the Inquisition. Amicia will have to do everything to protect her little brother, not only from the dangers around them but also from the ubiquitous rats. The game presents itself as an alternative version of history, with real elements.

“Before the rats, it’s first and foremost the story of Hugo and Amicia. It’s the collision between the innocence of two children and their relationship, and the rest of the world: a historically crude Middle-Age, made even more cruel by the rats and a quite special Inquisition.”

Kévin Choteau - Game Director

“It’s definitely a dark game. We are coldly telling the harsh reality of the world of that time. However, there is no wanton violence. Amicia will have to take decisions that will cost her part of her soul. It’s a theme we explore in our game: how far will she go in order to survive?”

Aurélie Belzanne - Communication Manager



A Plague Tale: Innocence is a narrative adventure game in which infiltration is a big part of the gameplay. Amicia has a sling, which she can use to fling various projectiles either to distract the guards or to kill. She will also be able to use her environment to distract her opponents, for example by throwing objects away to clear a passage. Hugo will also become more and more independent as the game progresses, and interactions between the two siblings will also be crucial to getting out of trouble. Finally, fire is also an important element because it will allow you to scare the rats. You can also move them away with food. A Plague Tale: Innocence will be released on May 14, 2019 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (Steam). To get it at the best price, visit our comparator.
