Forspoken, Previously Known as Project Athia, Coming to PS5 and PC in 2022

We got our first real look at the game previously called Project Athia during the Square Enix presentation, including a new title.


We got a new look at the Square Enix game Project Athia during its Square Enix Presents livestream, including our first peek at gameplay and a new title. The game from the Luminous Productions team has now been given the name Forspoken.

After a brief intro from actor Ella Balinska, who does the voice and performance capture for protagonist Frey, the trailer showed off some story moments as well as gameplay. Most of the gameplay content was focused on traversal, as Frey bounded along trees with parkour-like grace. We also got a brief glimpse at some of the enemies she'll be facing, and the overall environment.
