A Plague Tale: Requiem Gameplay Video
- The events of Requiem are set six months after the finale of Innocence. Hugo de Roon has not conquered his illness completely, so he and his sister Amitia set out in search of a cure.
- One of the themes of the sequel is the struggle with guilt. According to the journalist, Amitia, who is forced to kill people, expresses a wider range of emotions, including anger, than in the original.
- The main character has acquired a crossbow. It can be used to eliminate enemies in armor – they are not affected by stones launched from a sling. However, shooting everyone right and left is not possible: the crossbow bolts are a rare resource.
- Another new element of equipment – disposable knives, scattered throughout the world.
- The crafting system did not go anywhere. In the demo, you can make familiar with the first part of the potions for kindling and fire extinguishing. There is also a novelty – the resin: it increases the burning radius of the sources of fire, plus no one forbids the lure of the guardian in a pool of resin and set it on fire. More than 20 combinations of materials and projectiles are claimed.
- Enemies no longer kill Amitia with a single blow – the protagonist can survive some damage (if not played on “hard”). When the enemy comes close, sometimes there is an opportunity to perform a counterattack. In addition, the increased map area makes it easier to escape and hide after detection.
- There is a pumping system. It takes into account your style of play – for example, for the bloodthirsty approach is rewarded with combat skills.
- According to the journalist, in general, Requiem does not look like a giant step forward compared to its predecessor. Nevertheless, the sequel successfully develops the original gameplay formula, and the picture in it is even more spectacular than in Innocence, which is still very beautiful.
