Square Enix has given us a new look at Forspoken, a fantasy-flavoured action-adventure, coming to PlayStation 5 in Spring, 2022.
Forspoken—which was until March called “Project Athia”—is about a woman who zaps into a fantasy world. Once there, she has superpowers, courtesy of… some bracelets that she is wearing?
According to a post on the PlayStation Blog, Frey is a directionless, gritty yet street smart young woman.”
Check out the trailer:
The description reads:
“Mysteriously transported from New York City, Frey Holland finds herself trapped in the beautiful and cruel land of Athia with a magical, sentient bracelet wrapped around her arm. Her new, cynical companion “Cuff” helps Frey navigate through the sprawling landscapes of Athia.”
Apparently, in search of a way back home (and to her cat), Frey will have to battle a being called Tantas. Tantas seems to be a queenly figure, sitting on a throne, with a odd helmet—think silver dinner plate + bucket.
Also worthy of note is that Frey seems to be able to fly and, as she remarks, “move shit with my freaking mind.” As for Athia itself, it looks as if Forspoken might be an open-world game, but we will have to wait and see.
Forspoken is coming to PlayStation 5 and PC in Spring 2022
