A Plague Tale: Requiem is an action-adventure survival horror stealth video game developed by Asobo Studio and published by Focus Entertainment. It is the sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence, and follows the story of siblings Amicia and Hugo de Rune who searches for a cure to Hugo’s blood illness in Southern France while fleeing from the soldiers of the Inquisition and swarms of rats who are spreading the black plague.
Recently, Focus Entertainment released A Plague Tale: Requirem’s 1.3 update, which includes improvements to the game’s balance as well as bug fixes that are both common and platform-specific. The 1.3 Patch Notes also revealed that the game is now compatible with Steam Deck.
