SQUARE ENIX unveiled a new story trailer and a release window for Forspoken. More information is given about Frey, the game’s protagonist who’s, “a directionless, gritty yet street smart young woman who has persevered despite her rough upbringing in New York City.” The trailer also shows off Forspoken’s magic-infused combat, and movements that will play a key role in the gameplay. Frey will learn different spells as the game progresses.
Besides Frey, other key characters can be seen in the trailer, including Frey’s companion Cuff, who is a magical sentient bracelet, voiced by actor Jonathan Cake. The trailer also introduces Tanta Sila, a “maddened and evil ruler who is the strongest and most formidable Tanta, or matriarch, in Athia, as she and Frey face off in an explosive and action-packed battle.” Athia is performed and voiced by actress and musician Janina Gavankar.
Forspoken is being developed simultaneously for the PS5 console and PC.
