There’s no sign of the Forspoken media barrage slowing, with Square Enix and Sony unrelenting with their promotion of the release ahead of its 24th January launch. This video, anchored by Frey actress Ella Balinska, is not shy on spoilers, so if you’ve already decided to pick up the title and want to go in fresh – well, maybe give the video a miss and stop reading here.
For the rest of you, the showcase includes an epic battle with villain Tanta Sila, as well as a look at some of the Breakbeasts you’ll be fighting all over the open world of Athia. As is always the case with this game, the combat looks spot-on – it’s almost like a spiritual successor to the inFAMOUS franchise, and with Sucker Punch’s attention elsewhere, that’s no bad thing.
The video concludes with a look at an illusory New York that Frey will find herself trapped in, and have to fight her way out of. It’s all looking rock solid, but don’t take our word for it: there’s a demo on the PS Store right now. Have you checked it out yet? And what are your impressions thus far?
