Forspoken presents a story with strong female characters

Between the Final Fantasy resurgence and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Square Enix has been on quite a roll lately. As revealed in their latest event, the game publisher wants to keep the ball rolling. Square Enix is launching the epic single-player adventure Forspoken next year, highlighted with a new trailer revealed today.

Voiced and acted by star Ella Balinska, Frey Holland, a woman from New York, is transported to the fantasy world of Athia. She quickly discovers that a miasma called the Break is corrupting everything in Athia. As a survivor of the Break, Frey uses a flurry of spells to defeat corrupted creatures in a pursuit against the evil witch Tanta Prav (played by Walking Dead star Pollyanna McIntosh).

As Luminous Productions’ first game, the developers experimented with a unique formula, melding East and West into a promising single-player game. Though the game’s mechanics share similarities with popular Square Enix games, Forspoken also takes inspiration from Western influences and mythologies (as you might notice from the newly revealed boss, Jabberwock).

Besides the lore influences, the developers also wanted to create a story with strong female characters. With Balinska and McIntosh on board, Forspoken is poised to become just that.

Forspoken is currently set to launch on May 24, 2022. It will come out for the PlayStation 5 and the PC for now. Preordering either version will have perks when the game comes out.

The PlayStation 5 preorder will come with the base game, the Cat’s Meow Cloak, Covet Nails, and Wicked Nails. Meanwhile, the digital edition of the console game will come with the base game, the No Limits Cloaks, Symbol Combo Necklace, Trigger Happy Nails, and Crafting Starter Kit.

The PC preorder will come with the game, Elite Cloak, Spectra Combo Necklace, and Overclock Nails.

Further, the Digital Deluxe Versions for either platform will come with an added bonus: Digital Mini Soundtrack, Digital Mini Art Book, early access to upcoming story DLC “In Tanta We Trust,” and a Rare Resource Kit (only for PS5).
