Fresh off of its appearance at the Tribeca Games Showcase, Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Requiem received a new gameplay trailer at the Xbox-Bethesda Showcase. It showcases more combat with Amicia seemingly embracing her violent side, slaying soldiers left and right. Check it out below.

Along with striking from stealth with a knife and crossbow, Amicia can also push enemies into a pile of rats to brutally kill them. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Hugo’s powers can be used to ravage enemies. When channeled, the player’s perspective shifts to the rats as they bear down on their target. It’s a disturbing new twist but also very cool.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch (via the cloud) along with launching day one on Xbox Game Pass (for consoles, PC and cloud). It’s still coming in 2022 with a release date yet to be revealed but it looks stunning thus far. Stay tuned for more updates in the meantime.
