A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14 - new webseries takes you
behind the scenes starting today with Episode 1: Roots of Innocence

A
Plague Tale: Innocence is the new own-IP title from Asobo Studio, with a
newly-announced release date of May 14, 2019. Asobo are game
development veterans who have honed their craft on some of the
industry’s biggest projects, and now forge new ground with their own
original story of Amicia, Hugo, and the Black Death. Focus Home
Interactive will highlight the work of this incredible French team in a
new behind-the-scenes webseries, the first episode of which, Roots of
Innocence, is available now.

The first episode focuses on Amicia
and Hugo, the two main characters of A Plague Tale: Innocence, and their
relationship. These children encounter 14th century France in a similar
way to the player, an unknown and dangerous place that they barely
understand but must survive. As the realities of the world of adults
press down on them, their familial love will be tested as they work
together to overcome challenges from the rat plague and pursuing
Inquisition alike.

This episode also introduces you to Charlotte
McBurney and Logan Hannan, the young actors who provide voices for
Amicia and Hugo. Both are immensely talented and have their own approach
to and opinions of these realistic, troubled characters. As your
constant companions through the adventure, their work is as vital as
anyone’s to creating a moving, emotional experience that will stick with
you long past the first playthrough.

A Plague Tale: Innocence releases May 14, 2019 on PS4.
