Back during the PlayStation 5 reveal event, Sony showed off a game by the name of Project Athia. Published by Square Enix, this PS5 console exclusive showed off very little, but what was shown was intriguing. Now, Square Enix has given fans a second look at the game, as well as announcing the official name and release year.
During the Square Enix Presents Spring 2021, the publisher showed off a new trailer for Project Athia, revealing that the PS5 and PC game will in fact be called Forspoken. At the original reveal event, no release date was given for Forspoken, and while we still don’t have a full date, the publisher confirmed that it will release some time in 2022.
“Introducing Forspoken, The New Narrative-Driven Adventure Set in a Beautiful Yet Cruel World. Play as Frey Holland, a young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical yet dangerous world of Athia,” reads the description for the game.
While the original trailer showed off a world that appeared to be very traditional in nature, this latest trailer injected much more personality, with the protagonist seemingly hailing from a modern era, and somehow ending up in the mythical world of Athia – though we will have to wait to find out more.
Though not too much was shown, enough was revealed to keep fans hungering for more. Hopefully much more of this promising game will be shown off between now and its release in 2022.
