At the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase at E3 2021, Microsoft announced A Plague Tale: Requiem, which will be released on the launch day of Xbox Game Pass in 2022 for PC and Xbox Series X | S.
Microsoft’s previous game, A Plague Tale: Innocence, launched in 2019 and since its release the game has quickly seen over 1 million total sales. The game took place in France and the story revolved around the survival of two children under the protection of the protagonist Amicia against a cruel priest who, to advance his own plans, carried out an inquisition by spreading rats across the country.
Since the story of Innocence ends with one of the children, Hugo, gaining supernatural powers to control rats, and both protagonists Amicia and Hugo becoming refugees in France, the story of A Plague Tale: Requiem starts from there go on. .
