Plague Tale Requiem: Chapter 8, Escaping from the Count’s Soldiers – walkthrough

The second part of Chapter 8 (A Sea of Promises) in Plague Tale Requiem is more intense. Our guide will help you escape from the Count’s soldiers and avoid the attacks of the Falconeer’s falcon.

In the second phase of Chapter 8 (A Sea of Promises) of Plague Tale: Requiem, Amicia and Hugo must run away from the Count’s soldiers. Our walkthrough shows how to evade the pursuit and hide from the Falconeer.

  • Escape from the Count’s soldiers
  • Escape from the Falconeer
  • Follow the Count and the Countess

Escape from the Count’s soldiers

After the events on the stage, Amicia and Hugo become enemies. Once you have control of them, you must flee from the soldiers. Keep sprinting and reach the building to temporarily lose the chase.

Continue along the path and you will find an additional workbench in the barn. Ask Hugo to go through the hole in the wall (shown in the image above) and he will unlock the gate for you.

Behind the gate, you will find a wheeled cart that you can push. Place the cart in a way that allows you to access the upper floor of the barn. There is a secret chest in this area.

Escape from the Falconeer

A more challenging task awaits you – you will encounter a Falconeer who sends his falcon to hunt you down. Being caught in the open when the falcon attacks means instant death.

Start by throwing a rock at the nearby tool box. This will distract the falcon and make it fly towards the tool box.

Take advantage of the falcon being distracted and quickly move to the next cover. Do not try to reach covers that are too far away, as you may not make it in time.

Repeat the above two steps until you reach a side door (shown in the screenshot above) which leads away from this location.

Your new objective is to find Arnaud. Simply follow the linear path to an area where Arnaud will duel against the Count.

Follow the Count and the Countess

You will be taken to the Count’s estate, but this time you will be treated as a guest. Simply follow the Count and his wife, listen to their conversations and complete basic interactions (such as tasting and praying). You will eventually reach a room prepared for Hugo and Amicia. This marks the end of Chapter 8.

The game does not allow you to freely explore the estate. More freedom awaits you in the next chapter.
