A Plague Tale: Requiem is an action adventure where you play a pair of siblings Hugo and Amicia. The story continues from the first game's discovery of the plague of rats and Hugo's latent abilities. Standing out again for weaving the sibling interactions into the game, and the beautiful environmental storytelling, this takes Amicia and her brother on an intense new quest for hope, as a terrifying curse hunts them down.

Play involves navigating and exploring the world. You need to work with both Amicia and Hugo to get around guards and solve simple puzzles to subdue the rat threat. Unlike other games you are generally underpowered, which makes this an experience focused on stealth and avoidance of violence, although sometimes that becomes unavoidable.

The result is a game that questions your ability to sacrifice your innocence to save the one you love. You face the savagery of a collapsing world coming to terms by being overwhelmed by the rats. But just as pressing is the human response to the chaos and whether you can find hope with others to survive.

Content Rating

This game has been rated PEGI 18.

In the US, ESRB state: A Plague Tale: Innocence's rating: from a third-person perspective, players avoid swarms of rats and use stealth tactics to sneak around soldiers. One method of deterring rats is to lure them to corpses or soldiers, who are shown screaming as they are bitten/eaten. Cutscenes depict characters being impaled by swords, struck by arrows or maces, and stabbed by spears. Some game environments contain corpses that have been impaled, burned, or partially eaten/mutilated (sometimes with entrails visible).
The Developer describes the game as including "Frequent Violence or Gore, General Mature Content."
