About A Plague Tale: Requiem

About this game

Travel to Southern France in the 14th century to help Amicia and Hugo de Rune in A Plague Tale: Requiem, an action-adventure stealth game from Asobo Studio and Focus Entertainment set six months after the first game.

Stay Hidden

On the run from the French Inquisition as well as rats spreading the black death, Amicia and Hugo would do well to remain hidden. Although Amicia is more than prepared to fight if need be thanks to a crossbow. With that and a slingshot, and a bit of alchemical knowledge, you will be able to light torches from a distance — or extinguish them.

Use the Rats

While the siblings may be trying to keep clear of the plague-ridden rodents, thanks to Hugo’s special powers you will be able to use them to your advantage. Reveal enemy positions, use them to solve puzzles, or just overwhelm (or kill) enemies. They may be afraid of the light, but with hundreds of thousands on-screen at any one time, the light can only save you so often.

Explore Medieval France

Set in a brand new region of France, with vibrant colours and new locales, this sees Amicia and Hugo trying to get passage out of the country. They will have to move through towns, villages, harbours and marketplaces as they seek to set sail to the Mediterranean.

This entry in the Plague Tale series is a great improvement on the previous one. There are less alchemical utilities, but the introduction of a new weapon and new ways to use the utilities makes up for it. The skill progression is based on how you choose to play the game, if you want to play a stealth run, then you'll see an improvement in your stealth skills, if you want to fight everyone in sight, your aggressive fighting skills will improve. I do recommend trying to balance between all of the styles as there are sections that are strictly stealth based and there are full on fights as well. The story does a fantastic job of expanding further on the legacy of the carrier of the Macula and what is involved with that. The scenery is beautiful, much like the previous game, with some improvements in graphical options for more modern graphics cards. It's far more expansive and you will find yourself going to many new locations that make the world feel much larger, more realistic, and lived in. Overall, I recommendthe game, it was a joy to play through.

Best Game ever

Plague Tale: Requiem... Well, the game is awesome, by my opinion, one of best, if not THE best game, ever. I loved Plague Tale: Innocence, and considered it the best game before this one, but this is just way better in every aspect. Graphically the game delivers excellent visuals, world is so much more collorfull compared to the first game, there is no raytracing at the time when I finished the game and wrote this review, but even without it the graphics are perfect. The story is perfect, lots of cutscenes, lots of dialogue, not something you can see in many other games, compared to the first game, hard to compare, both deliver a fantastic story. Gameplay isn't too dificult, but it's not too easy either, well balanced I would say. Controlls and game mechanics are a bit different, compared to first game, but aren't too dificult to adopt, in fact the improvements made with weapon and ammo selection make it easier than what was the case in first game, you can also combine different types of ammo, I like that change. During 25 hours I spent playing this game, I have enjoyed every minute of it, the game doesn't take too much time to complete, but it's not too short either, the first game I finished within 11 hours, and in my opinion that was just too short, but The story really make up for it, this game on the other hand improves the story, and doubles it's lenght, which provide excellent experience overall. As for issues with optimization, well I haven't seen any, I run this game on 4k resolution with RTX 3070 Ti, put most setting on high and step up DLSS to quality, the game didn't stutter, didn't crash, freeze or anything, maybe I was just too focused on the story, so I didn't notice some small issues, but enjoyed it regardless. Bugs: very rare: the only one I experienced is when Lucas got stuck surrounded by rats, because he didn't follow Amicia from one place to another, when he was supposed to. when it comes to features, the only thing missing in this game, I think would be the benchmark option, for a next-gen demanding tittle, the benchmark would be a usefull tool for settings adjustment, especially for those running slightlly older hardware. Besides that benchmark feature and missing raytracing at launch (which was advertised a lot, especially by nVidia), I have nothing else to complain about. Overall it's a unique great game, certainlly a candidate for GOTY - and this game deserves nothing less. Should you buy it? Definetlly, if you are looking...

A fitting sequel that is even more beautiful than part 1. There are huge, stunningly gorgeous areas to explore, brimming with detail and directorial nuance. There is a surprisingly long and evolving story with more depth added to character development and relationships. And it gets quite extreme. For example, Amicia's PTSD is now fully formed, and it's a brutal and visceral experience. And, then, the horror can get very surreal indeed. Unfortunately, there have been no real changes to the mediocre core gameplay: it's just somewhat frustrating stealth and a bit of combat, though I should note that a new system has been introduced that is immersive and wickedly fun to use. [SPOILER]You can control the rats![/SPOILER] Of course it's used sparingly. Still, as with [I]A Plague Tale: Innocence[/I] I am left wondering why we even need all this action. I have would enjoyed the games just as much, if not more, if they were straightforward exploration/puzzle adventures, or even "walking sims". [I]Requiem[/I] is at its best when it just lets you wander around a lovely locale at your own pace, basking in the views, and listening in on everyday conversations. It looks so good. We finally get HDR here and it's done well and adds a lot to the beauty of the sun-kissed southern French countryside. A small concern is that the bump in environmental realism highlights flaws with people and especially faces. Animations are sometimes wonky. My criticisms seem so insignificant when the game is considered as a whole. At many moments I felt in the presence of a monumental achievement by many artists working passionately together. While never quite transcending its own artifice, this is a great and memorable game. Play part 1 first (it's very good!) and then prepare to be wowed by this one.

Easily one of the best story driven games I've ever played. The first one isnt great , But its worth picking up on sale to go into the 2nd game with more context. But certainly not needed.

Great sequel to a fantastic series. Game mechanics are similar and feel familiar - like a natural continuation of the story - but they also build slightly on some of the tricks & mechanics from the previous game. The voice acting and motion capture in this game is incredible. The voice actors work off each other so well and create a very compelling story and player compassion for the characters. As cheezy as it sounds - the bond Amicia has with Hugo can be "felt" even more in the sequel and is a testament to the actors and writers. Also - as far as visuals go... this is probably one of the "prettiest" and - in contrast - has some of the most horrific scenes i've ever seen in a video game. The range between the colorful levels and the darker more intense levels is crazy and appreciated it even more on the 2nd play through. As for any negatives ive seen from in the reviews... I noticed two trends; the optimization and the ending. As for the first, didnt have a single issue with this. My computer isnt a really a potato, but i was able to have it port this to my 4k big screen TV without noticing any performance issues. Could have been fixed - but would recommend checking the recommended specs before purchasing anyway. For the ending.... (no spoilers) but I can see why it could have split the fan base. I decided to play it again and noticed the 2nd go round that there are clues and symbology in the other chapters that i missed the first time & these tend to point to a specific outcome. Not sure i agree with the hate - but - all and all, the devs are great story tellers and I look forward to more games from them in this genre!
