Members of the press were recently granted the opportunity to play A Plague Tale: Innocence for the first time. The result is a brand new trailer for the game, which is full of praise.
“Full of promise” with “everything it takes to be a good game,” A Plague Tale: Innocence is “impeccably polished,” “distinctive and terrifying” with expectations from some of a “game of the year contender.” Doing an “exceptional job at portraying raw, emotional storytelling”, the game also features “haunting art direction” and there’s “a lot more to the gameplay and story than first meets the eye.” Regularly compared favourably to the genre’s best titles, journalists “came away from this preview absolutely desperate for more.”
For more about the game, check out the following text, which comes to us from this trailer’s adjoining press release.
