Asobo Studio intends to make use of the latest-gen hardware, by doing things that were previously impossible to accomplish for the sequel to A Plague Tale and A Plague Tale Requiem. While many were quick to infer this statement regarding the visuals, it appears that these additional powers will allow the team to expand on the narrative scope of things as well as the gameplay itself.
Asobo Studio's Lead Level Designer spoke briefly about the team's use of the PS5 in PLAY Magazine (issue #19), which is a PlayStation-focused magazine. Players will notice that in the gameplay.
With the release of a remastered version of A Plague Tale, the team has had some experience with both current-gen platforms. On the PS5 side of things, they're "doubling down" on DualSense capabilities.
A Plague Tale Requiem will be released on October 18 for PS5, Xbox Series, and PC.
