Sons of the Forest Release Date: Everything We Know
The extended gameplay trailer, which you can watch below, showcases 12 minutes’ worth of gameplay. Requiem’s gorgeous environments instantly stand out, and the sequel’s visual improvements also extend to its character models.
Although they left their ravaged home behind, Amicia and Hugo are still hunted by soldiers who outmatch them in a straight-up fight.
Stealth still plays a major role in staying alive, and Hugo can use his powers to spot people through walls, allowing the duo to move around them carefully.
Amicia has access to her trusty sling, which she can use to shoot different types of projectiles. One sets fire to grass and other patches of ground, taking out any unlucky enemies investigating them. Another seems to be capable of extinguishing flames and temporarily distracting opponents.
A Plague Tale: Requiem also equips Amicia with a crossbow. Hugo can also call upon some old, deadly friends in dire situations, although controlling the rat swarm seems to come at a great cost for the boy.
Amicia and Hugo are talented duos but, despite the tools in their arsenal and the horrifying experiences they’ve been through, they still haven’t fully lost the vulnerability that made them such compelling protagonists in the first game.
