A Plague Tale: Requiem is a sequel to 2019’s A Plague Tale: Innocence, which introduced Amicia and her younger brother Hugo as they were pursued by Inquisition soldiers across France.

As to what the sequel will involve, the Steam page for A Plague Tale: Requiem shares the following:

“After escaping their devastated homeland, Amicia and Hugo travel far south, to new regions and vibrant cities. There, they attempt to start a new life and control Hugo’s curse. But, when Hugo’s powers reawaken, death and destruction return in a flood of devouring rats. Forced to flee once more, the siblings place their hopes in a prophesized island that may hold the key to saving Hugo.”
