A Plague Tale: Innocence Web Series Comes to an End with the Third and Final Episode
A Plague Tale: Innocence may still be a fair ways off. But this did not deter Asobo, the studio behind the title, from continuing its web series. In fact, the recently released third episode will be the last we’ll ever see. As Asobo explains that this was never meant to be a particularly long road.
The third and final episode is aptly named ‘Children of the Plague‘. And the four minute long video discusses the title’s main antagonists, the rats and sure, the titular Plague is what drives the rodents mad. But within the game, they are the main force of harm and malice – as the studio explains.
A Plague Tale: Innocence while featuring combat elements, will mostly concentrate on the stealth and exploration. As the video, showcases a plethora of puzzles, and stealth elements which all revolve around the use of light. As in-game, the plague infested rats, are afraid of any source of light – not just fire.
Towards the end of the video, there’s even a snippet of info explaining the technology and the engine behind the rat-based mechanic. Those who prefer a more technical approach to game development will surely love it. And while Asobo did not show too much during the engine presentation, then it did show that the title’s main mechanic will be rather exploitable.
A lot can still change until May, and by that time, A Plague Tale: Innocence may not be what we’ve seen today. And the above video shows that Asobo listens to fan feedback. As character animations appear to be much improved, in relation to what we’ve seen before. But before we can pass the final judgment, we’ll have to wait until the title hits the streets.
A Plague Tale: Innocence will release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 14th.
