Unveiled at a conference dedicated to the PlayStation 5, Forspoken took advantage of the Game Awards 2021 ceremony to announce its video release date.
Forspoken will be released on PC and PS5 on May 24, 2022. As young studio Luminous Productions will soon celebrate its fourth anniversary, Square Enix will soon be able to measure the efforts of former Final Fantasy XV developers.
Everyone Frey, Frey, Frey …
The new trailer released for the Game Awards allows you to discover the world of Forspoken in a little more detail. If we already knew that the game largely borrowed its narration from the isekai genre, while the young Frey Holland finds herself propelled into a fantastic universe, we discover that Athia’s world is not a tale fairies. On the contrary: in Forspoken, a toxic fog called “The Corruption” seems to devour everything in its path, and only the newly arrived New Yorker seems to have resisted this elusive evil.
The first trailers already focused on parkour mechanics that will allow the beauty played by actress Ella Balinska to move through the hostile world of Forspoken, but players will also be able to combine mastery of magic to create additional elements such as a very practical ice board.
Forspoken: Royal Edition
Magic will obviously be at the heart of the fights, but the heroine of Luminous Productions can also materialize handguns and throws to alternate between ranged and melee attacks, a combo that is reminiscent of the gameplay of a certain Final Fantasy XV, on which a good part of the Forspoken teams worked. Ah, and don’t get us started on the somewhat demonic laughter at the end of this trailer, or we won’t hesitate to summon Final Fantasy X jurisprudence. You have been warned.
A little more patience: Forspoken will give voice on May 24, 2022 on PC and PS5.
