A Plague Tale: Innocence was one of our absolute favourites from 2019; from the whole Xbox One generation in fact. One of its standout features were the downright disgusting 'rat swarms', and as it turns out, they're gonna get a whole lot more intimidating in the sequel.
In the latest issue of Edge Magazine, director on A Plague Tale: Requiem discussed various aspects of the upcoming sequel. Within, the dev touched on what moving away from Xbox One and PS4 means for Requiem.
"When we write, [the increased quality] allows us to consider sequences that were previously impossible, such as chases with hundreds of thousands of rats, or locations that evolve dynamically according to the story and events."
The director also said that certain aspects of the previous title, Innocence, "could look a bit like a theatre set due to technical limitations" and that the game world in Requiem will be more believable with the move to a next-gen-only release.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is sure to be one of the biggest Game Pass launches of the year, when it hits Xbox Series X|S on October 18th.
