Developer Asobo Studio has announced the 4k next-gen upgrade for A Plague Tale. For players who own the game already the upgrade is free. The enhanced version will be available on the 6th July, so there are only a few weeks to wait.
A Plague Tale released in 2019 on PC, Xbox and Playstation and received a lot of positive reviews. In 2019 Thumb Culture awarded the game the Gold Award for our PC review. At E3 recently the sequel was announced at the Microsoft / Bethesda conference.
The upgrade will bring 4k resolution at 60fps, and support 3D audio with a compatible headset. Recently its been heavily rumoured to be included in the Playstation Plus lineup for July however, nothing has been confirmed by Sony at this time.
I will definitely be playing the PS5 version when it launches in July as I have not spent nearly enough time on the game due to commitments and new releases.
