Square Enix Announces Forspoken Steelbook Exclusive to Best Buy; No Art Yet Provided

Publisher and developer Square Enix has revealed that pre-ordering Forspoken from Best Buy will grant customers an exclusive Steelbook. Unfortunately, the design of the Steelbook has not yet been shared, so it’s best to wait on that revelation before pre-ordering to assess the quality of the artwork. Thanks to Wario64 on Twitter for sharing this news.

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.

Forspoken is releasing on PC and Playstation 5 on May 24, 2022.
