A Plague Tale: Innocence by Asobo Studios will launch next week but here is a look at some of the brutal villains you will confront in the game. You can check out the newest trailer for yourself below:
As you might have guessed from the title, A Plague Tale: Innocence takes place in 14th France during a plague epidemic. Publisher Focus Home Interactive has provided a detailed description of the game:
Monsters lurk behind every helmet and between every crack A Plague Tale: Innocence, the poetic and harrowing dark adventure from Asobo Studio and Focus Home Interactive, is about to arrive on May 14 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Your enemies are everywhere – inside stately homes and lordly cathedrals, down to the very dregs of the world in cellars and basements. Showcased today in our new “Monsters” trailer, while the deadly swarms of rats consume all they come across, harrying Amicia and Hugo’s long journey, far more familiar foes pick their moment to strike with more care. The English army, local brigands and, worst of all, The Inquisition and their mysterious master, Vitalis. All pursue the siblings with a deadly enthusiasm, spurred on by unknown forces.
Lord Nicholas, the commander of the Inquisition’s forces, is the helmeted face of fear for the local populace under the boot heel of his army, and for Amicia and Hugo as they flee. He is brutal and uncompromising, willing to do whatever it takes to complete his mission to capture and return the siblings to his master. Strong, fast, with zealots at his every beck and call, he will be a formidable and merciless foe.
