As promised by Square Enix, Forspoken will be getting post-launch support in the form of an expansion in the relatively near future. Titled 'In Tanta We Trust', this DLC is actually a prequel in terms of story. It's set 25 years before the events of the main game, with protagonist Frey travelling back in time to experience the all-important Purge of the Rheddig — a massive battle that marked the beginning of the fantasy setting's corruption.
It sounds like there'll be a focus on fighting alongside a second hero named Cinta. The expansion's promising new magical abilities, environments, and, of course, story content.
The DLC is set to launch on the 26th May, but if you happened to buy the Digital Deluxe version of Forspoken, you'll get early access to the expansion, starting on the 23rd May.

The key art for this is cool!
@get2sammyb yep indeed. But game will be even more dead when FF16 is around the corner. Noone will ever play this again after that release.
@ORO_ERICIUS I guess it's not a multiplayer game so doesn't matter too much. As it gets discounts, PS Plus releases, etc, I'm sure plenty of people will try it out.
@ORO_ERICIUS Who cares if its dead its a single player game numbers mean jack.
Oh art looks cool.
I rented the main game - and enjoyed it enough to finish it. Newark getting trashed in a game by a New Yorker is priceless. Should have done some Boston jokes also 😄
I'll spend some cash for the DLC this time.
@get2sammyb you got it mixed up with FF14. That’s a multiplayer game. FF16 is Single Player
To quote Nowe from Drakengard 2: "But why?"
Just let the game die, FFS.
I guess I expressed myself wrongly or rather translated my native language... I meant that nobody will play Forspoken anymore when Final Fantasy 16 is on the market. As a direct comparison to Square Enix. Of course, a PS Plus offer or discounts can temporarily change that, but to be honest I don't see a future for Luminous Productions. I'm very disappointed with what was shown last year and what you got in the end.
@PlayStationGamer3919 he was on about Forspoken not being a multiplayer game
@ORO_ERICIUS and I still think you miss the point that there's no missing out on anything for a single player game. So if somebody enjoyed the base game they will likely try this out at some point.
@ORO_ERICIUS what you said was fine buddy. People just disagree. Due to it being single player it doesn't really matter too much when a new release is out as discounts and PS Plus releases, etc will make it available to a larger audience.
Obviously sales can be lost due to competition, but this was too far gone for any real impact
Enjoyed the game decently enough overall, but the last few acts felt really rushed so left kind of a sour taste in my mouth. Don’t think DLC could bring me back to it.
Awesome! Looking forward to it. That was much quicker than expected. Definitely getting this, even though I’ll be knee deep in Tears of the Kingdom by release.
@theMEGAniggle then again. Forespoken is a mid game at best
I'm sure both players will be thrilled.
@DrGonzo Not to be pedantic (read as: to totally be) but I'm not quite sure you're using "pedantic" in the right context there 🤔 lol
Here's the Google definition to clarify:
excessively concerned with minor details or rules; overscrupulous.
"his analyses are careful and even painstaking, but never pedantic"
I apologise for my pedantry.
Same issue as with Saints Row; promise and/or sell a season pass before release, then be held to it when the game flops badly. I appreciate that a lot of planning and resourcing goes into DLC, which are still massive projects even if smaller than a main game, but it's still unfortunate.
This game isn't half as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Looking forward to this.
Well, I suppose another round is in order, given that you've got a 120Hz capable telly and cable, so you can enjoy really epic battles... for those you actually play it and don't like the voice acting, try to change it in Japanese, it's brilliant... cuff talks like 50% less and Frey sounds like those mental anime girl, haha
@PlayStationGamer3919 the game is just meh, less than adequate, a lot of potential but wow that story and the dialogue is a mess
@cassiel hmmm I will try this out. Japanese was my way to play GOT and yea it was amazing
@DrGonzo if that was sarcasm then why add the bit in parentheses... 😂 Very funny joke !
I actually enjoyed Forspoken so I'm looking forward to playing some more.
Loved this game personally it will be well received when it inevitably goes on PS Plus. Most who hated it didn't play it or just played the demo which is wildly different from the full game. They shot themselves in the foot with that demo though. Humorous game and the traversal is outstanding.
Looking forward to this!
Does that mean that we have to find the landfill full of unsold Forspoken copies?
@ORO_ERICIUS I will play the game and the DLC when my wallet allows it. I am eager to play it, but couldn't to this day.
Is this paid dlc?
Maybe I'll finally try balan wonderland something about seeing this made me think of square enix flops.
Very excited for all 13 people that bought/play this game!
I think all the Oro was saying earlier in the thread is that its not ideal for the the devs to be making DLC for a widely ridiculed game that releases around the time of one of the biggest RPG releases in years. Like if your action sci-fi film was releasing the same weekend as a new Star Wars.
I mean, remember, even a supposedly successful (yet often disliked) game like FFXV ended up cancelling planned DLC because the DLC was selling so badly. And will people play this eventually even if it's on PS+? They'll maybe play the main game for a bit, have a laugh, then stop. Bit of a tangent, but look at trophy data for any game and it's surprising how briefly most people play games - even good ones - with it often being the case that only 60-70% of people get a trophy you get after a few hours. A trophy for completing the game can often be sub-10%. It's even worse for DLC.
@theMEGAniggle I agree 100%
Thanks for the release date! We'll probably get a trailer sometime in April.
