During today’s Sony State of Play, Square Enix revealed a new trailer for the recently delayed Forspoken, highlighting a variety of the title’s combat mechanics and several gorgeous sequences.
You can view the stream where this announcement occurred below:
Forspoken follows Frey as she enters Athia for the first time after being transported from New York City. She then discovers a magical, sentient bracelet has wrapped around her arm. With her new companion, named “Cuff,” Frey navigates the mysterious and sprawling landscapes of Athia in her search for a way home. Forspoken has been designed specifically for the PlayStation 5 and takes advantage of the console to create a game that feels like an authentic next-gen experience.
The gameplay shown mirrors the fast action we’ve seen in games like Final Fantasy XV, but with a more streamlined action system. Players will have access to several abilities and skills, but we don’t know much about the RPG features just yet.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the release of Forspoken, which is currently planned for PlayStation 5 and PC, releasing on October 11, 2022.
