Last year, Square Enix presented a new IP via the working title: Project Athia. Now, we get a deeper look into their next action RPG, now named Forspoken.
In Forspoken, by Square Enix and Luminous Productions, you will play as Frey Holland (Ella Balinska). As per the Square Enix press release, “[Frey is] an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical and dangerous land called Athia. ”
Based off the trailer, it initially gives me a Final Fantasy XV feel but with a deeper focus on magical powers. It’s also nice to see that we will finally be receiving a minority-led female AAA title. They are few and far between, and they can certainly present a new story to a genre that absolutely needs it.
Check out some screens below:
Forspoken is set to release in 2022 and will be released on PlayStation 5 and PC.
