This page of A Plague Tale Innocence guide has a walkthrough for chapter 1 - Legacy of De Rune Family. It serves as a prologue. You will meet the main heroine of the game - Amicia De Rune. Read the walkthrough to, e.g. learn how to complete the hunting sequence, what to do when the Inquisition arrives, or how to sneak together with Hugo.
A Trip with the Father
The adventure begins with a trip to the forest. Follow Amicia's father to the great apple tree. There, you will encounter the first challenge - learning how to shoot. Take a bag of rocks lying near you, and point in the direction of the tree. There, you will find a downed tree trunk, which is a line of fire. Stand next to it and start shooting.
You will have 10 seconds to knock down 6 apples. If you don't manage, you won't fail the mission, so you can use this as an exercise in aiming. After this task, you will find a sequence of chasing a dog, in which your task is to follow the path, avoiding obstacles.
Then, a hunting sequence will begin. You have to sneak up on a boar and shoot it with a slingshot. Hit him on the head. Use tall grass to get around the animal. In this case, speed is important. The slingshot makes sounds that will frighten the boar. Therefore, you need to aim and shoot before the attention indicator above the animal is filled. The animal will start to run away when that happens, and you will have to wait until it calms down, and repeat the attempt.
After this sequence, you will have one more sequence of a pursuit of the dog.
Invasion of the Inquisition
After returning home, you should go to Amicia's mother. In order to enter the building, where she is, you need to go through the chapel. You'll go out into the yard. Go towards the woman standing at the door. After a short conversation, you will be inside the building. Climb the stairs and turn into the office where the Amicia's mother is.
After this conversation, the mansion will be attacked. First, you will have to get to Hugo. He is in the last room from the entrance, in the corner, behind a veil with the pattern lock. You can get there through the door coming out of the mother's office.
Then you will have to sneak with the boy to the exit. After hiding behind a table in the room, wait until the guard does not look at you and slip into the next room.
Once you get there, reach the corridor.
Then, wait until the situation in the staircase calms down. Wait for the soldier to turn his back to the stairs. After that, go downstairs.
In the next room, wait until the opponents turn their backs and use the covers to get to the opposite door.
There, you will have to wait again until the enemies will not look and slip behind the covers into a small storage room. Here, you will find a way out of the building.
From now on, you will follow your mother. At some point, the woman will stop. When that happens, throw a stone at a metal object in the area. Do not use the slingshot! The sound it makes will attract the attention sound of enemies.
At some point, instead of stone, you will have to use a vase. Throw it in the opposite direction than the path you will follow. The sound of a breaking vase will make the guard go to this particular spot. This is especially important when Amicia has to get alone to the other side and create a passage for Hugo and mother.
After you pick up the vase, wait until the guard reaches the wall. Then, throw it towards the yard. Call your friends as soon as he turns towards the sound and takes a few steps.
After completing this sequence, prepare to run.
