Focus Home Interactive seems to be putting a lot of weight behind A Plague Tale: Innocence, as it's gone and hired actor Sean Bean for its latest promotional video. As you can see above, the actor, known for playing characters who die onscreen, reads The Little Boy Lost by William Blake, a short poem that has some thematic parallels with the bleak PlayStation 4 title. This isn't the first video game he's been involved in lately; he appeared as the first Elusive Target in Hitman 2 last year.

Anyway, it looks like the publisher is pushing this game pretty hard. It took a similar approach with last year's Vampyr, which went on to be a "tremendous success." We imagine we'll see a similar story here. The game is out now on PS4 -- have you been playing? What do you think of A Plague Tale: Innocence? Light a torch in the comments below.
