The upcoming action-adventure stealth game, A Plague Tale: Requiem, is getting a release on Nintendo Switch via Cloud.

The sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence, Requiem continues the story of siblings Amicia and Hugo de Rune looking for a cure to Hugo's blood disease. The story takes place in southern France during the 14th century, where the player has to contend with not only the French Inquisition soldiers but also hordes of rats spreading the Black Plague.

Players control Amicia who is equipped with a number of weapons, such as a crossbow and a knife, which she must use to defeat and distract enemies. The gameplay is set to be mostly similar to the first game, but expands on features such as gameplay and environments.

So, when is the game set to release on Switch?

When Does A Plague Tale: Requiem Release on Nintendo Switch?
