Launching a brand new license is never easy, but Square-Enix lends itself to the exercise with Forspoken, an AAA action-adventure game which continues to unfold gradually. A little reminder of the facts: we play Frey Holland (played by actress Ella Balinska), a New Yorker who finds herself propelled into a devastated and fantastic world. This universe is Athia and it is populated by formidable enemies, the Tantas.
Fortunately, our protagonist will be able to help herself with magical powers discovered on the job, which she will owe to a magic bracelet with words called Cuff. Suffice to say that its possibilities are exciting since it will be able to soar, jump very high and very far while launching destructive magic attacks.
This new trailer released during the Game Awards 2023 ceremony does not only allow us to set foot in its singular atmosphere, but also to have some more concrete information such as the release date, set for May 24, 2023 on PC and PS5.
In addition to this after all important detail, we are also learning the existence of a DLC, which will serve as a prequel to the story and which will notably be included in the Digital Deluxe edition.
While waiting for more information, we suggest you take a look at this new trailer, thus summarizing rather well the action and the confrontations, as well as some of the funny characters which will punctuate the adventure. And if you want more details, we have just put together a small article summarizing everything we know about the title of the Luminous Productions team: it happens right here.
Finally, note that the open world will be based on ultra-modern technologies, promising an experience that will properly exploit the capabilities of the PlayStation 5 and the PC. It’s always good to take and we cross our fingers to be pleasantly surprised.
