Welcome back to A Plague Tale Webseries. We’re happy and thankful that many of you appreciate the work of our team. Plunge today into the creative process behind A Plague Tale: Innocence in our third and final episode, Children of the Plague!
With the first and second episodes introducing you to the characters and the unforgiving world they share, episode 3, Children of the Plague, focuses on their nemeses: the unnatural rat plague that swarms across medieval France and the Inquisition relentlessly hunting Hugo and his sister Amicia.
Death and disease follow in the wake of the plague rats, and not one person - clergy, persecutor, royalty, or peasant - is safe. While for Asobo Studio, rats were second to the main characters and the narrative focus, they became an integral part to the game’s structure and a core part of the experience, influencing every aspect of the design. The inquisition has begun to fight back, and their equipment is tailored towards stopping the plague, using modified armor and light to keep the rats at bay.
A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
