New gameplay footage has also been shown off.
Square Enix announced at the PS5 reveal event last year that they’d be launching a console exclusive open world action title developed by Luminous Productions. Tentatively given the name Project Athia at the time, the game closed out the company’s recent DIrect-style showcase, and was given a proper, official name.
It’s called Forspoken, and it has been officially given a 2022 launch window. While there’s still so much we don’t know about its world and its narrative premise, we did get to see the protagonist, Frey, in action. Several locations from the game were shown off, including a desert, a forest, and what looked like a pretty contemporary city environment. In addition to that, bits and pieces of gameplay were also shown, showcasing flight, traversal, magically-infused combat, and more. Take a look below.
Whenever Forspoken launches in 2022, it’ll be available for PS5 and PC. The game’s PlayStation console exclusivity will last for two whole years.
