We of the most pleasant surprises this year has been A Plague Tale: Innocence. Well, I say pleasant but this is a dark game. When Brett reviewed the game he described it as having an “enthralling story” set in a “beautiful, yet, dreadful world” and having “moments of frightening action”. French developer, Adobo Studio really stepped up a level with A Plague Tale: Innocence. If you have yet to experience the plague (you know what I mean), then you may be interested to know that there is now a free demo available for the game on the PlayStation store.
This demo features the first chapter of the game and will introduce you to Hugo and Amicia as they make their way across medieval France. Of course, travelling is not so easy when there is a plague as well as a nefarious organisation after you. Oh, and the rats. Don’t forget the rats!
If you are unfamiliar with A Plague Tale: Innocence, you can check out the launch trailer for the game and the official description below –
Follow the grim tale of young Amicia and her little brother Hugo, in a heartrending journey through the darkest hours of history. Hunted by Inquisition soldiers and surrounded by unstoppable swarms of rats, Amicia and Hugo will come to know and trust each other. As they struggle to survive against overwhelming odds, they will fight to find purpose in this brutal, unforgiving world.
