A Plague Tale: Innocence is action – adventure horror stealth game released in May 2019 for Microsoft Windows, Playstation 4, Xbox One.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is probably best described as a stealth game, though how you interact with it depends on the situation. With humans, it’s a lot of sneaking around, using distractions like smashed pots to divert attention so you can get past. When it comes to the rats, they’re terrified of light, so you’ll find yourself using fire to make pathways through the diseased swarms. Sometimes, you’ll have to deal with both simultaneously: a guard wielding a lantern might be prowling around, keeping the rats at bay. It’s a slow experience right until it isn’t – and then you find yourself in a panicked run for survival.
And the best part of A Plague Tale is the way it weaves gameplay and storytelling together. There are cutscenes, but the most powerful narrative moments are ones that happen in game, as you watch Amicia and Hugo – and, later, some helpful friends – work together through terrible situations. In terms of storytelling, the game does well in creating a great atmosphere, and shows how the two siblings need to quickly mature in this world full of death and constant peril.
You play as Amicia de Rune, a teenage girl from a noble family. Her village is raided by the Inquisition, who are searching for her brother Hugo, who has a mysterious illness. They flee and head to the home of Laurentius, Hugo’s doctor. He is bedridden by the Plague, and instructs them to complete their mother’s work, who was working on a cure.
The story, graphics, music (composed by Olivier Deriviere) and voice acting are impressive in the game, although the game is not so popular in the world of so many games, A Plague Tale: Innocence is worth playing and probably one of the best games of this genre, definitely the hidden masterpiece.
