Asobo Studio is still saying A Plague Tale: Requiem will release this year for PS5 as the developer shares a new trailer as part of the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase. It was presumed we would get a final date as part of the livestream but a specific day and month weren’t shared.
At least the game itself is still shaping up nicely. Featuring a healthy amount of gameplay, the trailer shows how Requiem expands on A Plague Tale: Innocence with more movement and combat options. For now, we have this trailer to munch on while we wait for the final date.
“Embark on a heartrending journey into a brutal, breathtaking world, and discover the cost of saving those you love in a desperate struggle for survival. Strike from the shadows or unleash hell with a variety of weapons, tools and unearthly powers,” the YouTube description reads.
Side question: ive looked over what was announced at the showcase and nothing really stuck out besides this, Kojima and Starfield. Any recommendations i overlooked?
@Danloaded Sadly, no. The show was crappy. It’s ridiculous just how many Indie games are coming out nowadays. They all blend together even harder than AAA games.
@Danloaded Not really, it wasn’t that impressive. First-party from Xbox hasn’t really ever been something that has been for me anyway that’s why I left and bought a Nintendo Switch to go with my PlayStation 5. It was a bit of a weird showcase in truth. The usual suspects were there but I looked at most of those games and most could probably run on last gen. There were tons of indies too.
Really liked the first one. If it wasn’t for a couple of bugs and getting caught in death loops 3x, it’d been amazing. This one looks to be more action orientated, but that’s fine by me. Also, play it in French, it’s just better.
I liked the look of Forza Motorsport and Starfield and one or two others, but in reality the most recent State of Play was better although of course most of the games shown there are multi-platform anyway.
Shame Kojima has gone green but he wanted complete freedom to make what he wants and to publish where he wants, so can’t knock him for accepting the huge sums of money MS are giving him.
I’ve always had interest in trying the first one, but never liked how you’re this small kid fighting against trained soldiers. I’ve always felt that it should focused on being powerless instead did a killing machine.
Really looking forward to this! The first one was great. I can see this having some big open spaces, similar to what TLOU2 did. Probably not as big as TLOU2 did, but I’m sure there will be an obvious difference from the first game. This will be one of the first games I play when I get a PS5.
