Having gone gold, A Plague Tale Requiem is on track for release and in the promotions leading up to launch, developer Asobo Studio has announced the voice cast for the game’s main characters.
The cast of the sequel to 2019’s A Plague Tale Innocence features Kit Connor and Lucy Briggs-Owen. Charlotte McBurney and Logan Hannan have returned to continue to portray Amicia and Hugo, while Connor plays Lucas, their young alchemist friend and Briggs-Owen will be playing Beatrice de la Rune, mother to Amicia and Hugo.
Connor is best known for his portrayal of Nick Nelson in Netflix’s wholesome coming of age teen drama Heartstopper. Briggs-Owen starred as Amelia Ebrahimi in the long-running British medical series Holby City up until its cancellation. She has also lent her voice to games like Bloodborne and Sid Meier’s Civilization 6.
In recent news regarding A Plague Tale Requiem, developer Studio Asobo dropped a gameplay trailer that gave an extensive look at some of the skills and mechanics being introduced in the sequel. All taken, Requiem delivers a more hardened Amicia, determined as ever to survive while new systems focus on the resurgence of Hugo’s infection, which allows him to control and communicate with rat swarms.
It’s worth noting that A Plague Tale Requiem won’t be available for Xbox One consoles. The game is being made exclusively for modern PCs and the latest generation of console hardware. Asobo asserts that this is because they’ve chosen to focus on advancing the underlying technology, with smarter rats and greater draw distances for larger swarms, that ultimately drives the Plague Tale experience.
A Plague Tale: Requiem is currently available for pre-order on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10 PCs, Xbox Series X and S. The game will launch on October 18, 2022 and will be a day one release on Game Pass.
