Crafting in A Plague Tale: Requiem

You will be taken through tutorials on how to craft fairly early on in the game, but all you have to do is open the crafting menu and hold down the crafting button on the screen when hovered over your desired item. However, there are a few intricacies that aren’t explained right away. When you are exploring the world be sure to keep a lookout for small chests and containers found throughout the environment. Within them will be a bunch of materials, such as alcohol, which will let you craft more of a certain item.

You can also craft particular items without opening the crafting menu at all. When you are aiming with something like the crossbow and perhaps want a fire arrow, all you have to do is look down on the bottom-right and observe the diamond shape. There will be a prompt about what you have to hold in order to craft the resource. This is all done seamlessly without you having to open another menu which might impact your tense gameplay experience.

Equipment can be upgraded at workbenches that can be found scattered around the world. You will need to collect ‘pieces’ and ‘tools’ found around the world to upgrade equipment. It should be noted that some containers which have workbenches locked away can be opened with a knife. You’ll learn quickly over time how to unlock containers in the world.

A Plague Tale: Requiem is available right now on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
