Focus Home Interactive launched the third and last behind-the-scenes video for the Asobo Studio developed adventure A Plague Tale: Innocence, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 14, 2019.
The trailer continues to give players a look at what the development team is putting together to make this adventure. This video, titled Children of the Plague, focuses on the nemeses that these characters will encounter through the game: the rat plague that has pretty much taken over France and the Inquisition who are hunting Hugo and his sister Amicia.
During the game, the disease will follow where the rats have invaded, but in this medieval world, nothing is safe. During development, the team made the rats second to the main characters and as a strong narrative focus for the story. The team also included the Inquisition, who fight back against the plague or at least try to.
A Plague Tale: Innocence will tell a grim and emotional story, that’ll send players on a journey through medieval France in the year 1349 to help characters two lost children, Amicia and Hugo De Rune, survive a harsh, brutal world plagued by the Black Death (also known as the Black Plague, which was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history). You’ll be going on one rocky journey of adventure, action, and stealth as you attempt to escape from terrifying Inquisition soldiers while also trying to avoid swarms of disease-infested rats that would love to take a bite or two out of you. Across your journey, you’ll explore desolate and plague-ridden landscapes, like medieval castles and villages, catacombs, wasteland battlefields, and verdant forests, as you search for shelter.

Author’s take: I’ll be the one to say it, it would suck living during medieval times.
