A Plague Tale Guide

"...even a rat may drown a nation." A Plague Tale: Innocence Guide is a compendium of knowledge about this climatic stealth-adventure game. In our guidebook, we explain how to avoid detection and how to solve all puzzles. Also, we have prepared a detailed walkthrough of the whole story.

Last update: 06 October 2022

Rats are coming! The following guide to A Plague Tale Innocence has a complete set of information necessary for completing the game, understanding its mechanics, and discovering all the secrets.

The detailed walkthrough for all 17 chapters is the most important part of the guide. You will find solutions to the puzzles, tips for exploration, or ways of defeating enemies. The walkthrough also has strategies for the bosses, including the final boss.

Another large chapter is dedicated to the secrets and collectibles. It has detailed instructions on how to get 100% of curiosities, flowers for Hugo's herbarium, and gifts for the companions.

Besides these two main chapters, we have also prepared a few smaller ones. The game guide has, e.g. information about stealth, avoiding rats or upgrading equipment. The FAQ section has answers to, e.g. using the companions, finding crafting resources, or information about any possible supernatural elements.

We have also included an appendix which has, e.g. a trophy guide with detailed descriptions of all the achievements, the game's length, controls, and PC system requirements.

A Plague Tale Innocence: Quick beginner's tips

  1. Stealth is key to survival. Amicia is able to eliminate some of the opponents, but this is too risky, not always available, or may require specific items. Avoiding detection is the best way to go through locations.
  2. Upgrading the equipment regularly is important. You will be able to, e.g. carry more items or use more powerful gadgets. All this will make the gameplay easier.
  3. Try to explore every location you visit. Some of them may not be accessible to Amicia again after making enough progress. The only way to visit them again will be resetting the entire chapter.
  4. Don't leave Hugo alone for too long. The boy will stay with the main heroine throughout the majority of the game. However, there are situations where you will have to move alone. Return to Hugo before he starts panicking out - this can alarm enemies in the area.
  5. Sources of light are a universal solution to your troubles with rats. You can create in various ways, e.g. by carrying a torch, setting something on fire, or lighting stationary light sources.
