The Square-Enix Presents show just wrapped up and one of the biggest announcements was the full unveiling of Project Athia, which will officially be named Forspoken. It is scheduled to release in 2022.
Courtesy of the PlayStation Blog, here are the details:
Forspoken is an action RPG where you will take on the role of Frey Holland, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical and dangerous land called Athia. As Frey, you will embark on a thrilling, other-worldly adventure and face treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind the unknown land of Athia and awaken something much more from within.
Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, and we’re delighted to announce that actor, Ella Balinska is performing the character. We were looking for someone who could convincingly portray Frey’s dynamic character, and we knew immediately that Ella was the perfect person to play her. From the beginning, Ella understood the themes and concept of the game and was able to channel this in her performance to bring Frey’s character to life. Not only is Ella talented and well matched to the role of Frey, but she is also extremely passionate about Forspoken as her first video game project.
We love seeing new, inventive IPs and Forsaken certainly looks to be that. Not only does the game look beautiful, but the brief glimpse provided in the video above of the traversal and abilities looks mighty impressive. We’ll share more details as we have them!
