A Plague Tale: Requiem – release date and formats

A Plague Tale: Requiem is set to releases on October 18, 2022 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch via the Cloud. It’ll also be available on Xbox Game Pass on launch.

The sequel was first announced back in June of last year, during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase. It was a pleasant surprise, but the original game was very well received at the time.

The sequel promises an expanded slice of stealth action – but as well as Amicia’s slow-burn grounded combat approach, it appears Hugo’s now developed some supernatural powers of his own.

Among your powers include the ability to command some of the rat hordes yourself, setting them upon hapless guards for some gruesome kills.
