Forspoken launches May 24, 2022 for PlayStation 5 and PC

Luminous Studios RPG Forspoken will launch on May 24, 2022 Square Enix revealed during The Game Awards. The main character, Frey Holland sees herself transported to the land of Athia from New York City.

Frey soon learns this beautiful land once flourished under the reign of benevolent matriarchs, called Tantas, until a devastating blight relentlessly corrupted everything it touched. At the center of their shattered domains, the Tantas now rule as maddened and evil sorceresses.

Unaffected by the Break and desperate for answers, Frey reluctantly agrees to help the last remaining citizens of Athia who see her as their only hope. Frey’s journey through this strange and treacherous land will take her deep into the heart of corruption where she must battle monstrous creatures, confront the powerful Tantas, and uncover secrets that awaken something much more from within.

The new trailer shows off the mysterious land of Athia and some of its last remaining citizens. We also learn about the “Break” – a devastating miasma that corrupts everything it touches. Frey has survived this phenomenon and thus becomes a beacon of hope for Athia.
