While Focus Home Interactive opted to show more of Call of Cthulhu toward the end of this year's E3 madness, they did have something new to announce - A Plague Tale: Innocence.
Being a quick reveal deal, there isn't a whole lot to say about this particular title. Teasers are just that - a tease. They'll give us a title and just leave us with more questions than we started with.
The brief trailer introduces us to the sibling pair of Amicia and Hugo; and rats. A lot of rats. While the abundance of vermin would suggest the titular plague is meant more in the biblical way, a few nods to the Black Death that ravaged Europe in the 1300s remain.
But a literal plague of rats certainly does still exist in this world. Seemingly afraid of light, they scatter at the sight of the pair's burning lantern. With a bounty on their head, guards are traipsing through the creatures in an attempt to catch the run-away family. Skillful with a rope, the young girl smashes the hunter's light source causing the rats to swarm their would-be assailant before pressing onto a shrine. From there, things take a turn.
If you can bear to listen to the nursery rhyme playing out at the end of the trailer, you'll know of its significance to the infamous Black Death. With no tentative release date, the wait for A Plague Tale: Innocence could be as long as the plague itself.
