Square Enix’s Forspoken is out on January 24th for PS5 and PC, and reviews are close behind. Review aggregation site OpenCritic has confirmed that the review embargo for the upcoming action RPG lifts on January 23rd, 6 AM PST. That’s when we’ll know what critics have to say.
Developed by Luminous Productions, Forspoken is the story of Frey, who’s transported from New York to Athia and discovers magical powers. Along with exploring massive open regions with Cuff, a sentient bracelet, she’ll battle the three Tantas and survive a catastrophe known as the Break. Check out the opening gameplay here, as Frey battles corrupted creatures and a dragon.

The developer also revealed requirements and exclusive features for PC players. Head here for more details on what to expect, and stay tuned in the coming days for more.
