A Plague Tale: Innocence - Experience crafting, alchemy, and more in the Gameplay Overview Trailer

With just a short couple of weeks to go until release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, A Plague Tale: Innocence is fast becoming one of the most anticipated games of the year. The first major own-IP game developed by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Home Interactive, today’s overview trailer for A Plague Tale goes into how to take on your challenges - from the much-discussed rats and deadly universe, to the unique capabilities you’re given to combat or bypass Inquisition soldiers and the capabilities of your new allies.

Amicia is not completely alone in this adventure, as the trailer reveals. Her brother Hugo, while young and sickly, is a vital component of the partnership, his smaller stature able to keep them both safe at key moments. Other orphans - thieves, alchemists, and more - will teach Amicia new skills and provide new tools to hide, escape, and even kill.

In A Plague Tale: Innocence join Amicia and Hugo on a grim journey out of childhood and into a harsh 14th century reality they are ill-prepared for. Pursued by the mysterious and deadly Inquisition, hiding from the rats and suspicious, angry populace at every turn, while desperately seeking a safe haven - this is their life now and you must lead them to safety, no matter the danger.

A Plague Tale: Innocence releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 14. Pre-orders are available now!

High Praise from ACG

So this is an action game and not an RPG, correct?
It's more a story-driven puzzle game some light combat and light RPG elements apparently, but it runs like dope and looks amazing. Watch the ACG review. Pre-ordered a while back and hope to delve into it at some point this week.

I have this on PC and its a pretty damn good game i have to say. It does have some annoying graphical problems. Its VERY demanding (cant hold a locked 60fps at 1080p with a 980ti), and rather annoyingly it uses double buffered vsync so everytime the framerate drops from 60, it goes straight to 30fps. I have tried injecting tripple buffering but to no avail. It also has some kind of loading stutter, where you enter a room or area you havent been before and you get these stutters until it calms down. I am running on a SSD, and have 16gb of DDR4 ram,.
It doesnt take away from the game being very good though.

Is it an adventure game, RPG, linear in fashion?

Well i have only played about 2 hours, but its not an RPG, its linear from what i have played so far. Its very story orientated, and pure stealth in the 2 hours i have played. Apparently you can kill enemies later in the game (you have to avoid them at first). You pick up rocks and pots, that you throw to distract enemies etc. from what i have read, its mainly a stealth game, with heavy story. I only got it last night, and i'm not usually a stealth person, but its very well done, and i only stopped playing because i wanted to try Rage 2 lol.

Thanks for the short synopsis. Going to add this to the list.

Just to confirm the stuttering was a problem on my end. The game really doesnt like Rivatuner on screen display, i turned it off and there was no stutter.

Game seems to have mostly quite favorable reviews (lowest I’ve seen is Ign’s 7/10) with most other I came across around 9/10 or 9,5/10

I’m a bit surprised how very little we hear about it, generally (haven’t even seen a OT or official review topic here on Gaf)

Definitely my kind of game (single player, story driven), but I hear it’s got very little replay value, though, so I’m not wiling to pay $66,99 for this
When it’s $40-49,99, I’m definitely jumping in

According to the ACG review it's already 40 bucks.

It's a linear story driven game. I like it. They don't make these anymore.
Game is good looking. Facial details and animation, not so much.
