A Plague Tale: Innocence hit shelves tomorrow, and Focus Home Interactive and developer Asobo Studio have dropped one last trailer to get players excited. This one is heavy on the drama, as we see Amicia and her little brother Hugo in all manner of perilous situations. Interestingly, we also get a bit of narration from Lord Nicholas, the intimidating Inquisition commander who hunts you relentlessly throughout the game. You can check out the trailer, below.
It definitely looks like A Plague Tale will feature more polished storytelling than your typical Focus Home Interactive title. Asobo Studio doesn’t exactly have the most distinguished history (they’ve mostly done ports of kids stuff) so hopefully the full story delivers. Have you not been keeping up with A Plague Tale?
