What we've come to know as Project Athia, a PlayStation 5 console exclusive from Square Enix, has received an official title from the Japanese publisher. Its name is Forspoken and the small slice of footage above confirms it will launch at some point next year for PS5 and PC.
The main character is modelled after actress Ella Balinska, who is perhaps best known for her role in the 2017 version of Charlie's Angels. That protagonist's name is Frey Holland, who is described as "an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in the fantastical yet dangerous land of Athia." The game will take PS5 players on a "magical and perilous journey", and besides that, we still don't know much about it. Square Enix confirmed it'll be hosting another digital showcase in the summer season so let's hope more is shared then.
Gameplay helps to give us a real sense of the speed Frey will traverse the land of Athia at in this action RPG. "I can’t wait for players to experience firsthand just how satisfying it feels to move through Athia, scaling cliffs, and leaping across ravines in the future", said director Takeshi Aramaki over on the PlayStation Blog.
