The De Rune Legacy is the first chapter in the newest game A Plague Tale: Innocence.
You play as Amicia and this chapter is pretty much an introduction and the coming of the Inquisition.
Here’s a walkthrough of The De Rune Legacy in A Plague Tale.
Progress through the forest
Your start off as Amicia following her father. Your only task is to progress through the forest.
You can also pet your dog.
Keep walking until you reach a part where you have to show off your slinging skills.
Pick up the rocks near the fallen tree.
To sling it, aim first and hold the aim button until the target becomes small. Press throw when the target area is small.
After that, the dog called ‘Lion’ runs away. Follow Lion.
Sneak up on the wild boar
To sneak up on the boar, use crouch and walk through the tall grass. You have to aim at its head, so try going around to get a good shot.
After hitting the boar, it runs away. Follow it.
You will see the dead boar on the ground. Continue looking for Lion.
A cutscene will load, showing Lion getting devoured by something inside the ground.
Look for Beatrice
Beatrice is Amicia’s mother. After the cutscene, you’ll be back in the village.
To reach your house, you need to go through a chapel or a church.
You will then reach the house (image below).
Inside the house, you can go either left or right. If you go right, there’s a ladder here.
Up there, you can grab some spices.
Now, head back to the main entrance and use the ‘left side’ this time.
Go upstairs through the winding staircase and you will meet a servant. Enter the first door and a cutscene will load.
Beatrice (mother) will run out after a commotion is heard.
You need to look for Hugo. Hugo is at one of the last rooms. He is hiding behind the blanket or some cloth.
Get out of the house
During the cutscene, the father gets killed by the leader of the Inquisition force.
You need to escape as the guards are looking for you. Call Hugo to come to you.
The correct path is quite simple. Just use paths that are behind guards, or away from their gaze.
You will see servants getting murdered one by one. Escape while they’re distracted.
Keep heading towards the fireplace.
As you open the door, a cutscene loads. Beatrice comes in and rescues you guys.
At this point, just follow Beatrice and remember to crouch.
Use the tall grass to get out of the compound.
Keep going until you reach this part where you have to climb up.
Now, you’ll be stuck here. To distract the guard, grab the pot or rock on the bench.
Throw it on the armor reserve.
When the guard walks away, keep moving forward.
You will meet another group of guards blocking. Throw a rock at the pan.
Continue going ahead again. This time, you need to pick up the pot and throw it somewhere to distract the guard.
Once he moves, continue going ahead. As the door is locked, call Hugo to crawl through the hole.
Maintain crouching and go through the trees when the guard passes by.
Keep following Beatrice through the tall grass. To distract the guard, you need to first ask Hugo to stay.
Once the guard turns around, jump over and grab the pot in front of you.
Throw the pot at some other direction to distract the guard.
Once the guard moves away, call Hugo and Beatrice to join you.
Finally, you’ll be left with one more guard. This time, use a rock to throw at the bucket on the scarecrow.
The guard will look for awhile and turn around. Escape the area when he turns around.
A cutscene will then load. Beatrice is implied to be murdered by the leader of the Inquisition.
You now have to bring Hugo with you.
Escape the Inquisition
Together with Hugo, sprint all the way. The guards probably won’t kill you if you keep running.
Just run between the guards and follow the path.
You’ll eventually reach a dead end and a cutscene loads. Amicia and Hugo jumps into the river and a new chapter starts.
