Forspoken Latest Patch Finally Adjust One Very Annoying Feature

No more annoying frequent banter during travels! Peace and quiet!

Square Enix has recently released the latest Forspoken patch ahead of the upcoming DLC In Tanta We Trust.

Forspoken Patch 1.20 is out now just ahead of the launch of the upcoming new DLC expansion In Tanta We Trust. This patch introduces a lot of fixes for the game but it has a certain improvement that many players have been waiting for so long. The adjustment to the frequency and “content” of the “banter” between Frey and Cuff during world activities.

The banter between the two characters in the game has been one of the most reported complaints by many players. It seems players see it as unnecessary during travels and it just breaks their immersion when they play. With less “chat” between the two characters, it will be a little bit easier to travel around.

The cat creatures that are Tanta’s Familiars will now follow Frey around to collect mana and items. They will be available in the game’s rest spots.
