The action-adventure survival game by Asobo Studio, A Plague Tale: Innocence, just received its next-gen upgrade. So, if you were looking for a reason to play the title, well, here it is. Players who own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One can upgrade to their respective next-gen console versions.


The upgrade was announced last month, with a new trailer, which you can watch below, was released as well. Both Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will run the game at 4K 60 FPS. 3D Audio support is available as well, assuming you have a headset supporting the feature. All of these are free. While upgrading from previous-gen consoles is free, no new content is given.

The developer also revealed how to carry forward your game save progression. Xbox players will have to do nothing as their progress is carried forward automatically. However, from PS4 to PS5, you will have to do a few steps. First, you must install the latest update on PS4, then download your progress on your PS5 via cloud save.

Nintendo Switch Release

A Plague Tale: Innocence can now be played on Nintendo Switch using Nintendo’s Cloud Streaming technology. The developer highly recommends that players first try out the free demo to see if their connection is good enough before spending money.

About the Game

A Plague Tale: Innocence was released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC back in May 2019. The game received a positive reception from both fans and critics. You can check out our review over here. The game was developed by Asobo Studios, the same developer behind Microsoft Flight Simulator, and was published by Focus Home Interactive.

Planned Sequel

The original game surprised many and became a big success. A full-fledged sequel, A Plague Tale: Requiem, is already planned and will release for PC, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Switch (Cloud) sometime in 2022. However, given the trouble caused by the current pandemic, I won’t be surprised if the title gets delayed.
