Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked A Plague Tale: Requiem 22 months ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 7 weeks ago.
Play involves navigating and exploring the world. You need to work with both Amicia and Hugo to get around guards and solve simple puzzles to subdue the rat threat. Unlike other games you are generally underpowered, which makes this an experience focused on stealth and avoidance of violence, although sometimes that becomes unavoidable.
The result is a game that questions your ability to sacrifice your innocence to save the one you love. You face the savagery of a collapsing world coming to terms by being overwhelmed by the rats. But just as pressing is the human response to the chaos and whether you can find hope with others to survive.
Rated for younger players in Australia. Rated Mature Accompanied (MA 15+) for Strong themes and violence.
The Developer describes the game as including "Frequent Violence or Gore, General Mature Content."
14+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. It's a hard game and there are no substantial difficulty settings. You need good timing and resistance. Players also need to have good observation and problem solving skills as the best way forward isn't also the direct route.
