Forspoken 2

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.

In the world of Forspoken, the last remaining bastion of the Athians is Cipal, where the protagonist, Frey, can interact with citizens following the strife that has led to this scenario, the Break. Quests can be accepted, and trading can occur within this area that functions as the game’s hub area. Pilgrim’s Refuges can be found throughout the world as well, where one can partake in crafting and upgrading.

Frey can parkour around the map, providing cathartic movement, one of the prominent factors for the title’s identity. Belfries can be found as points of interest to get a better lay of the land. Combat comprises magic ranging in type coupled with traps that can meld with all sorts of skills to create devastating effects.

Forspoken is now available on PlayStation 5 and PC. Additionally, the Forspoken: In Tanta We Trust Story DLC will be available Summer 2023.
