Forspoken just got an age rating here in Europe from PEGI (that's the region's ratings board, for those who might not know). It's an 18, which is equivalent to 'Mature' in the US. PEGI's description highlights mature themes such as suicide, consumption of alcohol, and strong language. It's not a huge surprise to see Forspoken slapped with an 18, but there are wider implications.
Indeed, the fact that the game's been rated does suggest that development is approaching its final phase, and that its current release date of 11th October will stick. There was a rather flimsy rumour going around earlier this week that Square Enix could delay Forspoken in order to make room for Final Fantasy XVI — but that always seemed a little unrealistic. Certainly not impossible, but it would be a strange move from a company that will have already mapped out its marketing plans for the rest of 2022.
Anyway, are you looking forward to Forspoken? We remain a bit sceptical of the project going by what we've seen — the game has some serious tech demo vibes — but there's still plenty of time for updated footage to wow us. Let us know if you feel the same in the comments section below.
I am looking forward to checking this out and I don't believe the world will be as soulless as earlier peeks led some to believe.
Of course I'd like to see a lot more before I'd commit, but I suspect that we will see something soon, and I'm hoping it will impress.
I was liking what I had seen of it so far, but some of the enemies in the open world did look very static.
Hopefully the extra months will soften the edges, because I've loved everything else I've seen about this game.
Definitely one I'm excited for.
Yeah, I’m getting this one too. Hopefully it’s actually good
I think suicide bumped it up 18, which totally makes sense.
Any word if this will be receiving a trial/demo, for the top tier thing?
@PhhhCough If the reports are accurate, it needs to have one
I’ve got it preordered. My only current preorder for the rest of the year right now, which seems a little strange to say.
I don’t care how it reviews. I loved FFXV (and therefore Luminous), so I’m diving in and hoping this one gives me good feelings just like one did, as strange as the title was.
I’m a sucker for the whole, ‘our reality colliding with a fantasy world’ thing, so I’m interested to see how this turns out. Hopefully the fall isn’t too congested as I’d like to give this an honest go.
I think it needed a delay but hopefully they can get the Polish up
Really don't see a lot of overlap between JRPG FFXVI and this action game Forspoken so as long as they release a few weeks apart I don't see a problem.
Really looking forward to this one! Hope its rumored inclusion of microtransactions won’t ruin the experience.
I like the look of it. Probably won’t play it at release… but I’m sure I’ll end up playing it at some point.
I hope that doesn't mean the characters are gonna cuss every 5 seconds.
I like the look of what I’ve seen but I’ll wait for reviews square has been very inconsistent.
Great to hear this should still be on target for it's October release date.
Have you even seen the trailer? That girl drops more F-bombs than me when I stub my toe
I look forward to playing it in a year or so when it "fails to meet square's expectations" as literally everything does in their eyes.
