Forspoken is the New Name of Project Athia

First known as Project Athia, upcoming video game Forspoken just got revealed in the recent Square Enix Presents digital-showcase event today.

This game is a new narrative-driven adventure set in a beautiful yet cruel world. Actor Ella Balinska will be starring in this as the lead character Frey Holland. This is made by the newly-established studio Luminous Productions.

Frey Holland is an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in this new world called Athia.

“As the first video game I’ve worked on, and growing up a huge fan of video games myself, it’s remarkable to see the incredible world and story of Forspoken come together, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy,” said Balinska. “Frey as a character is real, she’s raw, she’s a girl who lost her way—both figuratively and literally—and is a character I immediately connected with, as I feel many people around the world will too when they set off on this adventure.”

Forspoken was designed for the PlayStation 5 console. It will fully harness the full power of the console and demonstrate Luminous Productions’ philosophy to provide a gaming experience like never before, fusing together the latest technology with creativity. It is currently in development for PS5 and PC and set to launch in 2022. Here’s the official website link:
