Forspoken is being developed by Luminous Productions, a studio created by the Final Fantasy 15 development team, so expect some beautiful action and a compelling story. The worst writers include Gary Whitta (of the famous Rogue: One A Star Wars story) and Amy Hennig, who worked on the Uncharted series. The game’s music will be composed by composer Bear McCreary.
Forspoken is a game about a young woman named Frey who is about to turn 21 years old. Instead of celebrating at some expensive club in the Meatpacking area, Frey is transported to the world of Athia. “where the fantasies and nightmares are suddenly very real,” reads the Sony blog post.
Frey will learn new magical abilities to help her defeat Athia’s fearsome monsters, but to return home she will need to deal with Tantas, the almighty matriarchs who hold Athia in the hands of their deputy wear their strength.
We’ve only had one release window for Forspoken so far, thanks to the PlayStation rollout in September 2021. Expect the game on PS5 and PC in spring 2022. Sony already has the exclusivity on the table front. controller, so it won’t appear on Xbox One or Nintendo Switch. A video from Sony that highlights the game among other upcoming PS5 games includes this in fine text: “In development for PS5. Also available on PC. Not available on other consoles until at least 24 months after the date of issue.”
What we’ve seen so far about the game suggests that Frey will be an exceptional sporting hero. The protagonist can run fast and jump long distances, cross canyons by jumping between stone spiers. When she jumps, you can see the stream of grass from her feet in midair, which suggests her abilities are somehow enhanced by the ground below her.
The same theme also applies in combat. The trailer shows her facing three wolf-like foes, patches of orange light – possibly fire – visible through their delicate framing. The woman summoned tree roots from the ground, which swallowed one of the wolves. Again, the suggestion is that you will exploit the natural world to solve the problem.
Story details – Forspoken
Balinska said what she’s seen about the game so far being the first video game I’ve worked on, it’s remarkable to see the incredible world and Forspoken story come together, blurring the lines between reality and fiction.
“Frey as a character is real, she’s alive, she’s a lost girl – figuratively and literally – and a character that I instantly connect with, because I feel so many people in the world So did the world when they set out on this adventure.”
Frey is transported to the magical and dangerous world of Athia, where she must learn to harness her newfound magical powers to defeat monsters and Tantas, who rule the land. Her magic stems from “Cuff”, a magic bracelet that can talk to her (and is voiced by Jonathan Cake). Frey must defeat Tantas with Cuff’s help for a chance to return to New York City – and her cat.
