Rats entertainment

Forget ambient occlusion and full frame anti-aliasing, A Plague Tale: Innocence's contribution to video game technology is filling the screen with a thousand rats. Join us as we explore this extremely unsettling stealth puzzle game. Musophobes beware!

It's not just about the horror of potentially drowning in a sea of carnivorous rats. A Plague Tale is also a surprisingly pretty and well told story about two children attempting to survive in a plague-ridden 14th century France.

It's a mix of puzzles and sneaking and babysitting your younger brother Hugo, who isn't exactly trained in the art of stealth.

A Plague Tale: Innocence is out now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
