Announced in June 2020, Forspoken is the debut game from the Japanese company’s new Luminous Productions studio.
To help it achieve its lofty goal, Luminous is employing AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution, the newly launched competitor to Nvidia‘s much-hyped DLSS upscaling technology.
Luminous studio head and general manager Takeshi Aramaki discussed the technology in the video below, which includes some fresh Forspoken gameplay snippets.
“Our studio’s philosophy is ‘to create games unlike anything experienced before, fusing the world’ latest technologies with art’,” he said.
“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.”
Forspoken is scheduled for release on PC and PS5 in 2022, and it will reportedly be a PlayStation console exclusive for two years.
Billed as “a narrative-driven adventure set in a beautiful yet cruel world,” the game sees players take on the role of Frey Holland, “an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in the fantastical yet dangerous land of Athia”.
The lead character is portrayed by English actress Ella Balinska, who is known for starring in 2019 film Charlie’s Angels.
