A Plague Tale: Requiem will be a viable alternative to The Last of Us

A Plague Tale: Requiem makes one hell of a first impression. We’re yet to really see the true potential of the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and it’s difficult to know what chaos the COVID-19 pandemic has wrought on development pipelines – beyond the countless video game delays we’ve seen in the past two years. That’s why it’s worth paying attention when something new is able to stop you dead in your tracks. A Plague Tale: Requiem looks stunning. From its sprawling wildflower meadows to its densely populated forests to its intricately detailed ruins – developer Asobo Studio is set to once again deliver a world that you’ll be excited to spend time exploring. If you can stomach the sight of the rats, that is. 

A Plague Tale: Requiem’s audio and visual design belies its humble AA origins. Asobo isn’t working with the sort of budget or personnel that the Naughty Dogs of this world might be – you have to imagine that The Last of Us: Part 1 had a larger-scale production than this upcoming stealthy adventure game – but still this studio continues to deliver viable alternatives. And there are parallels, outside of the awe-inspiring presentation.
