A Plague Tale: Innocence Chapter 3 Walkthrough
Inside the church, head through the courtyard where you’ll meet the Priest who’ll agree to help you find Laurentius. Follow him into the depths of the catacombs of the church.
Soon after, you’ll be introduced to the second and perhaps more important threat in the game… the rats.
After devouring the Priest, the swarm of rats surrounds both Amicia and Hugo, but fortunately, you’re prompted to use the light and fire of the torch to keep the rodents at bay.
Proceed further down the crypt and let go of the torch to help Hugo and yourself up a barricade. Then burn a stick (near the crate) and continue, as you would scaring the rats away.
Quickly reach the next chamber as wooden sticks will extinguish rather quickly and the last thing you’d want is to have it go out in a swarm of infected rats.
Entering the Crypt
Before you can proceed through the entrance of the crypt, you’ll need to remove the layer of rats that prevent you from accessing the opening.
Climb up and into the corridor nearby and bring down the hanging chandelier with your slingshot to scare the rats away.
Moving forward, in the next room, hit one end of the cauldron’s chain to have it swing across the room. You’ll need to position and move accordingly, as you stay in the light of this chandelier.
Ascend the stairs and reach the kitchen to be shocked, at first, to see no light sources. Well, fear not, you can shoot down the pieces of ham from the ceiling to distract the rats.
Lift the wooden table block ahead to help Hugo proceed, scare the rats away with the torch and salvage any items you can from this area. Make your way under the wooden beams and into the next area.
Power of the Light
Take cautious steps, as you’ve to stay in the area lit by Hugo. Follow Hugo’s torchlight accordingly and he’ll hand you the torch at the end of it. Proceed down the room and light up the brazier.
Then look for the chandeliers, one is ablaze and the other won’t be.
Grab a stick to light the one that isn’t lit. Hugo will then soon drop down the chandelier having it come crashing down. Light this one again.
Have Hugo come down the ladder and make your way together with your brother to the newly found door. Open it and climb up the barricade to finally reach the crypt.
You’ve discovered the secrets you’ve come here to know. Now make your way to the exit of this rat-infested territory.
Exit the Monastery
Find a stick nearby and continue to light it along the path of rats, looking for any braziers to set ablaze when the stick runs out. The final escape is an intense one as you let go of the stick of light and run hastily to the exit of the monastery.
Once you’re out of the catacombs, both characters share a moment of relief in the triggered cutscene, as it marks the end of Chapter 3 in the story campaign for A Plague Tale: Innocence.
