“In the PC demo, players will face-off with a variety of enemies and test their fighting abilities with an extensive arsenal of attack and support magic that will prepare them for the high-octane action they can expect to encounter in the full game,” Square Enix said.
Forspoken | Launch Trailer
Forspoken is the debut game from Square Enix’s Luminous Productions studio. Following a couple of delays, it was released today for PS5 and PC. The console version currently has a score of 68 on review aggregation website Metacritic based on 63 reviews.
Forspoken follows Frey Holland, a young woman who is transported from New York to an ancient, fantastical land called Athia. In search of a way home, she must wield newfound magical powers to traverse the world and fend off the monstrous creatures that inhabit it.
Square Enix released a PS5 demo of the game in December, which was updated last week with several new features. It added button mapping functionality, made locked-on enemies that move off-screen remain locked-on for longer, adjusted certain text sizes and fixed “various technical issues”.
The company also revealed the game’s minimum, recommended and ultra PC system requirements last week.
“We’re so excited to celebrate the launch Forspoken, and to have players finally experience Frey’s story,” Forspoken co-director and Luminous Productions studio head Takeshi Aramaki said in a statement published on Tuesday.
“The development team and everyone involved have worked so hard to bring the vision of Forspoken to life and we cannot wait to see fans reaction. We hope that players relate to Frey as they dive into the mysterious land of Athia and go on this magical journey with her.”
