Asobo Studios' new IP, A Plague Tale: Innocence, features a unique setting and some interesting gameplay mechanics. Set during the black plague and at the height of the Spanish Inquisition, it's safe to say the game is brimming with narrative potential.
Today the studio has dropped an all-new story trailer highlighting the very above, which makes us even more amped to get our plague evasion skills on.
The story begins in the Kingdom of France, as the Hundred Years’ War and the 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.
Watch the new story trailer embedded below.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is out for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 14.
