A new trailer for the upcoming A Plague Tale: Innocence has dropped, and it places the focus on the true antagonists hiding in the shadows; not the rats that carry the plague, but the human embodiment of overzealous nature, beset by an incredible lust for power.

A week from now, A Plague Tale: Innocence will finally be released, and the game is shaping up to be a very interesting and multi-layered one. We’ve already seen footage of early gameplay in which the main character, a young girl named Amicia, tries to traverse cobbled streets in ruined France, all the while avoiding the plagued rats and the Inquisition which hunts her. Just last week, developer Asobo Studios also dropped an overview trailer, which gave a rundown on the story for Amicia and her brother Hugo, as well as detailing what their journey will entail.

The newest trailer, however, is dedicated to their true enemy: the Inquisition. Lead by the Grand Inquisitor Vitalis, the Inquisition's forces are commanded by the mysterious Lord Nicholas. It would seem that for all the trouble they’re worth, the rats are nothing more than a momentary distraction to the dangers presented by the Inquisition. The trailer makes both Vitalis and Lord Nicholas out to be very dangerous adversaries, capable of going to great lengths to ensure that Amicia and Hugo won’t succeed in their journey, and I for one can’t wait to prove them wrong.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is set to be released next Tuesday, May 14, on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Stay tuned for my review of the game once the full embargo lifts.
