At the PS5 reveal event, Square Enix popped up to show off a new game announced at the time as Project Athia. This game, which appeared to offer a unique blend of identities, while showcasing fluid traversal and combat would later be officially titled Forspoken. Now, the team behind Forspoken have revealed that they hope for the game to have the “highest quality visuals ever seen.”
In a recent trailer for AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, Takeshi Aramaki, the studio head for Luminous Productions spoke on the visuals of Forspoken, saying “Our studio's vision is ‘to create games unlike anything experienced before, fusing the world's latest technologies with art. Implementing cutting-edge AMD technology in the development of Forspoken is an embodiment of that philosophy. With Forspoken, we are aiming to achieve the highest quality visuals ever seen in an open-world game.”
Speaking more on FidelityFX Super Resolution, Aramaki said “I believe AMD's GPUOpen philosophy is raising the entire gaming industry's technical standards, which in turn benefits all players. We can't wait for players to get their hands on Forspoken and experience the next-gen graphics that were made possible by FSR.”
Discussion surrounding FSR aside, it is interesting to see the ambition brought about with regards to Forspoken. Square Enix has made many good looking titles, some of which indeed offer open worlds to explore. Evenso, with the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Horizon Forbidden West and more showcasing incredibly rich and detailed open worlds, Forspoken has a lot to live up to if it wants to claim the crown.
