Forspoken PS5 PlayStation 5 1

We now know a little more about PlayStation 5 console exclusive, Forspoken – the project formerly known as Project Athia. The game will star a character called Frey Holland, an “ordinary young woman” played by British actress Ella Balinska who “must harness her magical abilities to survive in the fantastical yet dangerous world land of Athia”. But we’ll be learning even more “later this year”.

That’s according to the YouTube description of an extended trailer for the title, which introduces a “sneak peek of new exhilarating gameplay” where we see Frey cursing at a bear – seriously! The tone of this game is intriguing us right now; it seems both hyper-serious and irreverent all at the same time. We’re loving the look of the traversal and combat, though, and we’re eagerly anticipating the next update so we can see how it all comes together.
