I just found out about this game yesterday, here, on VGC, from a CGI post, in a thread that I can't remember. Then Jim Sterling referenced it in his Rage 2 Jimpressions. Color me interested.

Dunno if you saw it, but Jim has since done a Jimpressions video for A Plague Tale. He fucking loves the game, and the way he talks about it has gotten me interested too. Looks like the sort of midtier, not quite AAA, but still decidedly not indie title that we used to get all the time back in the day but don't really anymore, the kind that added tons of hidden gems to old console's libraries and is sorely missing now.

That is a good description of the game but I'd give it more credit than mid tier honestly, it is really nippin at the heels of AAA in many ways. Hell, many or most AAA games feel like AA games these days in comparison to this now that I think about it. This is finished and polished, something a lot of AAA games can't seem to get right.

I did see the video, but thank you anyways. Actually watched just over half because I didn't want to to see too much in advance. I found

, but it's video games, so whadrugondo? :) Maybe it's explained more in the game.

This game looks goooood. Like, better than GoW at points when it hits those highs and ontop of that, good lord it is pretty on top. Stunningly beautiful.
