In 2020 Project Athia was introduced as a working title. Square Enix have now revealed that the games name will be: Forspoken It is a narrative driven adventure developed by Luminous Productions.
You’ll play the role of Frey, as she enters Athia for the first time. This new land is stunningly beautiful, but also cruel and deadly.
Story Introduction Trailer
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. In search of a way home, Frey will battle monstrous creatures, confront the powerful Tantas, and uncover secrets that awaken something much more from within.
Frey’s distinct lack of any weapon. There’s no sword, shield, bow or axe to be found in her arsenal. Instead, Frey takes down her foes with her newly discovered magic abilities.
Frey throws water orbs, shoots charges from her bare hands, and conjures an incredible tidal wave to encase, then freeze her foes
Square Enix is hoping to make an impression with this game release. Its stated goal being to include the highest quality visuals in any open world game to date. Forspoken will also be a PS5 console exclusive for at least 2 years. For me, this is one reason to buy said console (if I can actually find one)!
