It is explained why tale: Requiem does not reach PS4 and Xbox One

Next October will finally arrive A plague tale: requiem to the new generation consoles, leaving the PS4 and Xbox One outside this time. Many wonder what this decision caused. Fortunately, Asobo Studio, the developers, have finally offered an answer.

Through a new interview with Edge magazine, Kevin Choteau, director of this title, revealed that everything they plan to achieve in the visual section and the gameplay would have been impossible during the last generation of consoles . This was what he said about it:

In Innocence, some parts might seem like a theater decoration due to technical limitations. With Requiem we have been able to carry the horizon much further. All these advances are aimed at serving the narrative, since, when we write, the greatest power allows us to propose sequences that were previously impossible.

Choteau mainly refers to sections such as the persecutions of the rats, as well as the locations that evolve dynamically. However, although there is no version of PS4 and Xbox One, Nintendo Switch users can enjoy this game, but not in a native way, but through the cloud.

A plague tale: Requiem_ will arrive at PS5, Xbox Series X | S, Nintendo Switch and PC on October 18, 2022 . On related issues, Pilge Tale will have its own television series. Similarly, here you can see gameplay of this new title.

Editor’s note:

It is time to say goodbye to last generation. More and more games will begin to be exclusive to PS5 and Xbox Series X | S, and that’s fine. Eliminating the limiting of the previous generation gives developers more tools to improve the experience.
