Today, A Plague Tale: Innocence launched on Xbox One and PC. The game is an adventure that blends action, adventure, and stealth. The title follows protagonists Amicia and her little brother Hugo, both orphans and on the run from the terrifying inquisition. The young heroes will need to survive against an even greater danger, supernatural swarms of rats that appeared with the great plague, infecting cities and countryside alike.
A Plague Tale: Innocence supports a significantly higher resolution on Xbox One X, but it's not a native 4K presentation. Despite this, it looks crisp on the system, but the post-processing effects give it a slightly dream-like quality. Unlike Rage 2 which only renders at 1080p, A Plague Tale: Innocence looks stunning on a 4K display.
A Plague Tale: Innocence looks like a "AAA" game, but only costs $50. This may be due to the fact that it's a new franchise publisher Focus Home Interactive wants everyone to give it a go.
In our review, we said, "While there are some minor flaws with A Plague Tale: Innocence, the game as a whole is still absolutely fantastic, offering players a gripping narrative, a compelling mix of stealth and puzzle gameplay, and gorgeous audio-visuals. This is, without a doubt, one of the best games of 2019 so far."
Trying to live in a dying world
A Plague Tale: Innocence is a superb stealth adventure with excellent gameplay, gorgeous presentation, and a fantastic story that shows how the worst of what the world can throw at humanity can bring out the worst of it.
