It’s been confirmed that the Nintendo Switch version of A Plague Tale: Requiem will only be playable on the system via cloud streaming.
This news has been confirmed by the game’s official Twitter account which posted the announcement trailer alongside which system A Plague Tale: Requiem would be coming to. Seeing as though the game is going to be a next-gen exclusive, it was pretty safe to assume that the Nintendo Switch wouldn’t be able to run the game on the actual hardware.
This means that if you were hoping to play A Plague Tale: Requiem on the train to work, unfortunately, you’re not going to be able to do that. Cloud streaming on Nintendo Switch will require a pretty strong and reliable internet connection, so you’ll likely only be able to play the game indoors. With this news, A Plague Tale: Requiem joins the very short list of games exclusive to cloud streaming on Nintendo Switch, including Hitman 3 and Control: Ultimate Edition.
In case you missed the announcement, A Plague Tale: Requiem is a sequel to A Plague Tale: Innocence and was announced during Xbox and Bethesda’s joint E3 conference on Sunday. Despite being announced at that conference, the game is not an Xbox exclusive and is also coming to PC, PS5 and Nintendo Switch. A specific release date was not announced, but we can expect the game to launch at some point in 2022. However, it will be playable on Xbox Game Pass on the day of release.
Thankfully, this gives you time to play the first game which was one of the more underrated releases of 2019. You play as Amicia, a young, noble French girl whose family is torn apart by a combination of the French inquisition and a deadly plague of ravenous rats. You are tasked with journeying across a plague devastated France with your ill brother Hugo, all the while avoiding capture.
A Plague Tale: Innocence is currently available now on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Amazon Luna for the three people out there that actually have a subscription. If you’d like to know more about A Plague Tale: Innocence, you can read our review here.
