A Plague Tale Requiem: Guide content
Our guide to A Plague Tale: Requiem starts with pages dedicated to the basic gameplay mechanics. These are mainly found in the beginner's guide, where you will learn about the most important aspects of the gameplay. On the following pages, we have described, e.g. combat, stealth, exploration, developing Amicia's skills, crafting consumable items and improving Amicia's inventory with tools and workbenches.
The FAQ chapter contains answers to frequently asked questions. You will learn from it, among others, how to save the game, whether you can repeat chapters, how to have more knives or how to kill armored enemies.
Our walkthrough to A Plague Tale Requiem is a very important part of the guide. We have included detailed walkthroughs for all chapters of the game. We focused on sneaking past or eliminating encountered opponents, avoiding rats, solving environmental puzzles and defeating bosses and elite opponents. Our walkthrough also describers the game's ending.
The walkthrough is supplemented by a chapter on secrets and collectibles available in A Plague Tale Requiem. It will help you get 100% of the secrets, which are flowers and feathers for Hugo's Herbarium, Souvenirs and Hidden Chests. We have divided the descriptions of the collectibles according to the chapters in which they appear.

A Plague Tale Requiem: Quick beginner's guide
- Use stealth a lot. In A Plague Tale Requiem, Amicia has a wider range of skills to eliminate enemies stealthily, but direct confrontations can be deadly.
- Search carefully the locations you visit. You can mainly find tools to improve equipment, crafting ingredients, interactive items, as well as secrets and collectibles.
- Watch out in locations with rats. Stay within reach of light sources and move them so that you do not get eaten. In some locations, you can also distract rats and get rid of enemies by deception (e.g. putting out their torches).
- Use knives to open workbenches. This is the only way to access to some of them. Do not waste the knives you have on the enemies you encounter, as you can kill them in other ways.
- Help companions. Most of the time, you don't need to worry about your current companions (e.g. Hugo or Lucas), but in specific situations, their lives will be in danger. You will have to react quickly.
- Increase Amicia's inventory. Unlocking some of the available upgrades will enable you to carry more, e.g. knives, crossbow bolts or crafting materials. You will be able to use gadgets more frequently.
More tips and hints can be found on a separate page of the guide: Beginner's guide.
