The game takes us back to the 1300s wherein we play as Amicia, accompanied by her sick brother Hugo.

In order to do so, the siblings face many obstacles in the form of soldiers and infectious rats.

Basically, Alicia needs to protect and escort her little brother throughout the entire game. There will be times when Alicia needs to let go of Hugo to scout an area and create diversions. If you take too long to accomplish these tasks, Hugo will occasionally freak out. Players need to rely on their stealthy gameplay since A Plague Tale Innocence isn’t heavy on combat. There are certain circumstances wherein Alicia has to fight off some enemies. In order to do so, she’ll have a slingshot-like weapon equipped to fend off foes. Be very wary though, because all it takes is one hit to meet your death in this game. 

A Plague Tale Innocence is free on the Epic Games Store from August 5 – 11.
