Square Enix today announced that the open-world action game it announced last year – previously known under the working title Project Athia – has been officially renamed Forspoken.
The production will be released in 2022 on PlayStation 5 and PC.
Details about the gameplay and plot are still unknown. The new material reveals only the heroine in a short fragment of the cut-scene. We also see some gameplay snippets towards the end.
Forspoken is a fantasy game, but the action is set in a world resembling a modern one – at least this is indicated by the clothes of the main character, Frey Holland.
The girl has magical abilities that allow her, among other things, to move quickly. However, Frey will not avoid combat and will use his talents also offensively. The creators emphasize that the game will put great emphasis on the narration.
