One of the surprise games of last year was A Plague Tale: Innocence from Asobo Studio and Focus Home Interactive. When my fellow Enthusiast, Brett Medlock, reviewed the game for PlayStation Enthusiast he described it as “a brilliant game that shouldn’t go unplayed”. It even made Andrew Gonzalez’s favourite games of the year list, in the second spot no less. Safe to say that this is a game that you shouldn’t be sleeping on. Well, if you haven’t had a chance to play the game yet, then you may be interested to know that A Plague Tale: Innocence is coming to Xbox Game Pass.
The announcement was made on the game’s official Twitter account. You can check out the Tweet below –

The news was also confirmed on the official Xbox website where they also announced that Gris is coming to the PC version of the subscription service. Hopefully, this means that us console players may be able to check out that game soon too. We have also learned that a few games will be leaving the service in February. These titles are Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Resident Evil 4, and Saints Row: The Third.
If you want to know more about A Plague Tale: Innocence, you can check out the accolades trailer for the game below along with the official description –
As rats herald the plague, perfect scores and brilliant reviews have heralded the release of A Plague Tale: Innocence with press, players, and influencers making their love known. With tens of thousands of concurrent viewers on Twitch, Must Buy ratings from some of YouTube’s biggest gaming stars, and reviews calling it “incredible”, the “sleeper hit of the year”, and “outstanding”, Asobo’s new IP debut has had a stunning impact. See it all in the new Accolade Trailer, released today.
With audiences more interested than ever in strong narratives and compelling single-player experiences, A Plague Tale has captured hearts and minds with the dramatic story of Amicia and Hugo De Rune crossing through hell to find safety. A “triumphant” and “thrilling” story has been appreciated alongside the terror and horror of the rats that never let up, and “excellent” gameplay to create something that, as one critic put it, is “as close to perfect as games can get.”
Focus Home Interactive and Asobo Studio are delighted with the reaction and can’t wait to hear the thoughts and feelings of the players as they dive into Amicia and Hugo’s dark world.
