Forspoken Gets A New Story Trailer, Releases In Spring 2022 (VIDEO)
Square Enix’s mysterious open-world game Forspoken finally has an official release window. Previously known as Project Athia, the Luminous Productions-developed title has received a brand new story trailer that provides more backstory to our protagonist, Frey Holland, while also revealing its Spring 2022 release window.
Sony and Square Enix released the new Forspoken story trailer during today’s PlayStation Showcase presentation. The trailer kicks off in New York City and shows Frey struggling to survive, after which she is transported to the sprawling landscapes of Athia and encounters “Cuff”, a sentient bracelet shown wrapped around her arm. Check out the trailer below:
“Frey is a directionless, gritty yet street smart young woman who has persevered despite her rough upbringing in New York City,” reads the PlayStation blog accompanying the trailer. “And her life hasn’t really gotten any easier now that she’s about to turn 21. Things take a turn for the unexpected when she’s magically transported to Athia, a land where fantasies and nightmares are suddenly very real.”
Playing as Frey, you’ll need to harness newly discovered magical abilities to battle the terrifying monsters that inhabit the land. To have a chance of returning home, she’ll also have to contend with the Tantas — destructive and twisted all-powerful matriarchs who have dominion over Athia.”
Forspoken is slated to release in Spring 2022 exclusively for PC and PlayStation 5.
