A Plague Tale: Requiem will release for PS5 on 18th October 2022, it's been confirmed. Publisher Focus Entertainment shared the news during a gameplay-focused livestream, giving us our latest look at the sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence. Check it out above. Footage shows off some new characters, weapons, and abilities.
The game's available to pre-order on the PS Store now for £49.99/$59.99, and you'll gain access to "an exclusive crossbow skin, extra cosmetics for Amicia, and bonus crafting materials" if you choose to do so when it releases.
"In this new extended gameplay sequence, follow Amicia and Hugo as they make their way through a massive ochre-red quarry overwhelmed with soldiers eager to capture them. Fortunately, the duo has many new tricks up their sleeve and doesn’t shy away from getting their hands dirty. Watch how it all plays out and get ready to embark on their heart-rending journey into a brutal, breathtaking world, and discover the cost of saving those you love in a desperate struggle for survival."
Watched the livestream, and damn it looks good. They definitely improved the gameplay and it looks like it's no longer a "trial and error" type of stealth.
I'm so ready! Just hoping they don't pull of a Rodrick lol!
Can't wait to play this on a deep discount! 😀
Definitely day one on this one, the first game is one of my favourites.
Is it me remembering the first one too fondly or do the facial animations not look as good this time?
It would be cool if this was offered at no extra cost as part of a subscription
@DualWielding Least we will get a trial as part of Premium.
I really enjoyed the first and have this on my list. I may do a replay of the first while I wait for a price drop in the new one.
I definitely don't need a trial as I enjoyed the first one greatly. But I will most likely get this on discount seeing it's also on Gamepass.
Already pre-ordered. First part offered nothing groundbreaking in terms of gameplay but I highly enjoyed story, atmosphere and the characters.
@DualWielding who wouldn’t be? Sure any great game included in a subscription service would be fine but sometime the quality will suffer from it as already seen with the large Microsoft games.
Nevertheless I understand it feels kind of expensive to buy games for PlayStation when they are otherwise included in the game pass.
I really liked the first so I’m there day one for this. If they took the criticisms to heart and improved the parts that needed improving this could be something really special
@DualWielding it is on sub for gamepass
October is jam packed with releases: Forspoken, Gotham Knights, Marvel's Midnight Suns, Modern Warfare II, and now this.
Meanwhile November is just crickets lol
Cool, and see it is day one one Gamepass. Will try it there
Looks excellent! The stealth looks much more open to different approaches compared to the original. Looking forward to it!
Instances like this are why I have both a PS5 and Series X. Will enjoy this day one on Game Pass at no additional cost.
I will still buy this on PS5 even though I also have a Series X because the DualSense features in the first game were good enough for me to pay for the game.
With that said, it couldn't be releasing at a worse time. So many other games coming out around it that there will be no way I can really play it until sometime next year. The one positive is that it will probably be on sale by the time I'm able to get to it. I'm looking forward to playing it though as I loved the first game until the last couple of chapters, whenever that may be.
I loved the first one, great game, will take advantage of it being on Game Pass
October is starting to get packed
Call Of Duty MW2
Plague Tale Requiem
Property others Im missing
Thought this was a PS4 game aswell shame I enjoyed the first one 👎🏻
Day one for me. I haven’t watched a single video on it and don’t plan to, I can’t wait to go in blind with this one.
*****! Why october? It's packed now.
@jrt87 I preorder it Day one on a disc and play it at my own pace. Even double dipped with the first one for PS4 and 5.
@Odium Same plan here, I purposely skipped watching today's trailer!
October 18 can't get here soon enough.
@KidBoruto I just played the original for the first time about a month ago and it was fantastic. I’m already sold on this one, but want everything to be completely fresh.
I can’t wait for October!
so can't wait for this, the OG was my GOTY of 2019
@CapGod @jFug @Danloaded We're getting a grand total of at least 10 games in October...crazy times. Not to mention The Callisto Protocol (Dead Space's spiritual successor) in December.
That's not even counting the games still left with vague 2022 release windows.
No More Heroes III (PS5 Remaster/Upgrade) - October 04
Overwatch 2 - October 04
Marvel's Midnight Suns - October 07
Forspoken - October 11

Only care about forspoken, Gotham and plague in october specifically. And gotham is looking like a skip
@CapGod I probably won't be buying any of them at full price, my backlog has grown immensely again and I need to focus on older games.
@Reeneman Name one Microsoft game you’ve seen the quality suffer directly due to gamepass…
In the 5 years the service has been out they’ve released like a handful of exclusive games day 1 on it from their studios. (Since owning said studio)
From what I can think off the top of my head there’s
Sea of thieves - critically acclaimed. Still millions playing
Forza horizon 4 +5 - both critically acclaimed
Gears 5 - critically acclaimed. (Regarded as a step up in quality over 3-4 by most)
So that in my mind leaves crackdown 3 and halo infinite? …crack down 3 had how many years in developement hell?
Halo infinite had how big a budget? How many years in developement? And was also delayed a full year…
These two games certainly aren’t the result of gamepass… certainly weren’t rushed out the door. And certainly didn’t have low budgets due to gamepass day 1.
Seriously, this whole narrative that day 1 effects quality is what Sony has spun you because they don’t have the resources Microsoft has. We’ve seen nothing of Xbox first party day 1 releases to suggest that the quality of their games are suffering due to being placed on the service day 1. Hell, we’ve literally just seen their two big games for this year get delayed until next year! We’ve seen gameplay from one game from all the studios they picked up in 2018…not one release from them yet…and not any coming in the next 12 months! Games are not getting rushed out for the service are they?
These games aren’t low budget. Again halo infinite, one of the most expensive games ever made.
No, if these games come out lacking in quality they were always going to be lacking in quality, regardless of gamepass.
@Bleachedsmiles I don’t nee that Halo Infinite had a huge budget and at least if it really had than it was a waste of money. Where did the money went to? New engine… nah, good narrative story… nah…
You can not cover the investments for real big budget games with a cheap subscription service - at least not when nearly every gamer in the world not uses this service.
Ms have the money to push this and take some financial risks, that’s true but they won’t make this for decades.
So far what you get since the Xbox one Plattform are just promises and announcements but without any huge results. They surely have some good games (Forza alone is beautiful) but that’s not enough. What did they tell about the power of the cloud due the Xbox One (years later where is it?) the huge power of the SX. It’s all a big marketing bubble but as a gamer you won’t get the chance to play a lot of great games but what you do is waiting.
Are you really going to argue with a game like Sea of thieves? It will be a good one for sure, but that’s one of your examples for this huge super duper Series platform? Come on.
Sony did a lot of bad stuff in the recent years as well and I’m happy to have some kind of competition but the whole Xbox Plattform is too weak unfortunately. They have to do what they did with the Xbox 360, that was such a fantastic gaming plattform.
@Reeneman actually read what I wrote.
The argument that the quality of Xbox’s own games have suffered due to day 1 gamepass mandate is a false narrative. Often spun on here because Sony have come out and said their first party quality would suffer.
Nothing Xbox has shown so far shows that Xbox’s own studio first party games have suffered in quality for being day 1 on gamepass.
How you feel about halo infinite is a different argument. It had the developement time invested in it (it even got delayed a year like I said). It had the big budget… in fact there’s been zero reports gamepass has effected any games budget negatively.
If it’s a bad game (I personally enjoyed it) it was ALWAYS going to be a bad game regardless of day 1 gamepass or even if gamepass existed. 343 have shown they have internal problems.
‘Promises and announcements’ - again, that’s a different argument. What does that have to do with gamepass effecting their quality??? These games are not being rushed out. If there’s issues developing these games then there was always going to be issues regardless of gamepass. Are you starting to understand the point?
Sea of thieves is an example of one of the very few first party games that has come out on gamepass day 1. It’s an example that, regardless of your enjoyment of it, is a critically acclaimed and successful game for them. Why do you think they’re still supporting it now??
@Bleachedsmiles let’s make it more clear … it has the risk that it will negatively impact huge triple A games. It seems that you are well I formed about game development, so you know how much budget is behind such a game.
And like I said Sea of thieves might be a very nice title but this isn’t a huge triple a title. Games of this size are fine for such a service, same goes for other more indie like titles.
But you won’t be able to release a huge amount of triple A titles just backed with such a service.
That’s the main marketing bubble by Ms, again. Why they’re not going to release all of their titles only by GamePass? Because they rely on sales on PC and PlayStation as well.
@Reeneman Again, this is a different argument. That’s the thing I’ve noticed about you guys…you can’t just stick to the original point you was attempting to make - that gamepass has already effected the quality of Xbox studio games. The goal posts move because there’s nothing behind it other than it being a lazy comment.
The future releases…who knows? Hell blade 2 may be of lesser quality than hell blade 1…from what I’ve seen of it it doesn’t look like they’re not getting the time and budget they need to make it.
We’ve just seen starfield get delayed…whether it’s a good game at release or not who knows. But has gamepass effected the quality of that game?
And that’s the point. When somebody says a subscription service has effected quality of the games there’s only two ways it could do that correct?… budget will either be cut. Or games will be rushed out. Unless something else comes to your mind?
What have we seen for a fact so far? AAA games releasing day 1 on gamepass from Xbox getting delays…so we know they’re not being rushed for the service.
We also know for a fact so far that day 1 releases from Xbox game studios haven’t had their budgets lowered because of gamepass.
The games actually being good or not is a different argument. And has nothing to do with them releasing day 1 on gamepass effecting their quality. Unless you believe games like halo infinite would have been loads better had it not come out on gamepass. Crack down 2 loads better had it not come out on gamepass etc
