In the fresh trailer A Plague Tale: Innocence, the developers showed how the main character Amicia will confront the Inquisition and other dangers of France in 1349. The girl is armed with a sling, which works as a ranged weapon. With its help, she can stun guards, destroy light sources and break unreliable structures. Amicia is a young girl who is not able to cope with the majority of enemies. On her way, she will meet thieves, alchemists, and other professionals who will teach her different skills. The game is a series of survival puzzles, mostly consisting of methods to scare away or distract the hordes of hungry rats or direct them towards murderous knights. The main method of scaring rats off is fire, as rats will seldom enter within a radius of burning torches and braziers. The younger brother can be directed towards specific tasks when Amicia is busy.
Plague Tale: Innocence will be released on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 14th.
