A Plague Tale stars Amicia, a young girl who lives on a large estate with her family in medieval-era France. (She also looks remarkably like Aloy, the lead in Horizon Zero Dawn .) Her relationship with her family is curious. While she’s close with her father — an early scene shows the two out hunting together — she rarely sees her mother, who spends her time trying to find a cure for Amicia’s brother, Hugo, who suffers from a mysterious illness. Still, it seems a mostly peaceful life — until very early on in the game when the Inquisition lays siege to the estate in search of Hugo. The siblings eventually escape, but they are forced out on their own where they have to figure out how to survive while also trying to find out why, exactly, the Inquisition wants Hugo.
