A Plague Tale: Requiem takes place six months after the first game, with Amicia and Hugo de Rune traveling to Southern France in search of a cure for Hugo’s blood disease. It explores the connection of the siblings, Hugo’s plight with his powers, and Amicia’s own trauma as she kills and so on to protect herself and her brother.
In our A Plague Tale: Requiem review, we wrote, “A Plague Tale: Requiem is everything that one could want from a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. It’s more ambitious and action-packed than Innocence, and is quite easily one of the best new game releases of the year. The fact that A Plague Tale: Requiem is a day one Xbox Game Pass game adds significant value to Microsoft’s subscription service, and anyone with Game Pass should be sure to play it as soon as they can. Those on other platforms shouldn’t miss out either, as A Plague Tale: Requiem is easily worth full price. Simply put, A Plague Tale: Requiem is a must-play game.”
