The developers at Asobo Studio, along with publisher Focus Home Interactive, today announced that A Plague Tale: Innocence is now available in upgraded form on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, with a streaming version also available for Nintendo Switch. The game previously released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.

The newer version of the game boasts enhanced graphics up to 4K UHD, with 60FPS. There also are audio optimizations and faster loading times, as has become standard for games appearing on the more powerful consoles.

Players who already own the game on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One aren't being left out in the cold, though. There's a free upgrade available for them, meaning pretty much everybody wins.

A Plague Tale: Innocence tells the story of Amica and her little brother Hugo, who have the misfortune to live right in the midst of a truly dark period in Earth's history. Now you can explore that history in an interactive medium, making your way through a beautifully tragic world that critics seem to have found quite compelling at the time of the game's initial release.

If you're interested in A Plague Tale: Innocence, not that today's availability refers to digital editions only. The game will be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in stores starting October 19, 2021.

If you haven't yet played A Plague Tale: Innocence but find its premise intriguing, this looks like the ideal time to get around to it. A Plague Tale: Requiem, the forthcoming sequel, was announced at E3 2021 as part of the Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, and is due to arrive on Xbox Series X, PlayStation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch next year.
