Last update: Thursday, October 20, 2022

The following walkthrough of A Plague Tale: Requiem focuses on the beginning of Chapter I - Under a New Sun. Our walkthrough explains how to hide from Lucas and scare him, how to reach the castle ruins and find a way out of them, how to escape the Beekeeper and avoid detection.

Hide from Lucas the Perfidious

Follow Hugo to the castle ruins - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Follow Hugo to the castle ruins.

Lucas will offer to play hide and seek. You have 10 seconds to hide - we recommend running to the nearby ruins and vaulting over the small wall.

Start sneaking (Circle/B on consoles) and point the camera toward Lucas so you can see what he is doing. Sneak somewhere else if he comes too close.

Scare Lucas the Perfidious

Keep watching Lucas - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Keep watching Lucas. Sneak up on him from behind and hold down the Interact button (Square/X on the controller).

Defend King Hugo's kingdom

Walk with Hugo to the next part of the ruins, then to the river - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Walk with Hugo to the next part of the ruins, then to the river. Stand in front of a log. Time for a slingshot tutorial - you must hit floating objects with it. Hold down both the aim button (L2/LT on consoles) and the shoot button (R2/RT) each time to charge the slingshot so your projectiles are more accurate and stronger.

Eventually Tonin will appear and you'll need to repeat what you've done, shooting some more floating objects.

Follow the river

Start walking along the river - on the way you'll need to climb twice and walk under a fallen tree - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Start walking along the river - on the way you'll need to climb twice and walk under a fallen tree.

You'll reach the locked castle gate. There is a interactive gap on the left through which Amicia can squeeze through. Keep going until you fall down to a lower floor.

Find a way out of the castle

Take the only available path and reach the place you've jumped off of - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Take the only available path and reach the place you've jumped off of. You'll encounter a hostile Beekeeper you must run away from, as Amicia can't beat him in direct combat.

Make sure to sprint (Hold R2/RT on the controller), otherwise the Beekeeper will catch you. Keep running straight ahead, then immediately turn right, as the gate is closed. Jump over the obstacle, run straight and squeeze between the crates (the beekeeper has to be far behind you for the action to succeed).

You can treat the next section as a stealth tutorial - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You can treat the next section as a stealth tutorial. Crouch in tall grass to avoid detection.

Wait for the enemies to spread out and start sneaking towards the hut. Always carefully look at the area around you before leaving tall grass. Go through the hole to enter the hut.

After leaving the hut you'll need to distract an enemy for the first time - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

After leaving the hut you'll need to distract an enemy for the first time. Hold the inventory button (R1/RB on consoles), select stones and throw one at the toolbox on the left. Use this opportunity to sneak past.

Get closer to the next enemy. To the left of him is a small ledge you can climb.

On the higher ledge, there is a small hole - you need to crawl through - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

On the higher ledge, there is a small hole - you need to crawl through. Don't come out of hiding until the enemies leave.

You'll trigger a tutorial on quickly distracting enemies - press the appropriate button (Triangle/Y on the controller) and the Beekeper will stop approaching you. The opponent will change the direction he is facing and now you can sneak past him.

Get near some more enemies - here you'll find some Pots - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Get near some more enemies - here you'll find some Pots. You can select them from your inventory and throw them.

They must shatter behind an enemy and be in their hearing range (the ring surrounding an enemy). If you throw a pot correctly, the guard will be distracted by the noise, letting you slip past.

You'll reach a locked door - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You'll reach a locked door. Order Hugo to squeeze through. Hold down the command button (L1/LB on the controller) and press the action button (Triangle/Y on the controller). Wait for Hugo to open the door for you, then open the gate.

Keep moving forward - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

Keep moving forward. You'll encounter more enemies and trigger a few QTEs - quickly press the displayed buttons (such as Square in the example pictured above. The scene will suddenly end - this is scripted and always happens.

Follow the bird

You will now take control of Hugo - Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 1, Reach the castle - walkthrough - Chapter 1 - Under a New Sun - A Plague Tale Requiem Guide, Walkthrough

You will now take control of Hugo. Keep approaching the bird as it lands - this shows you the correct way forward. Walk in-between the rocks and remove the branches. Once you reach water and a large tree, just watch what happens next.
