Over the past few weeks, a fair amount of Forspoken gameplay has been shared, showing off parkour, combat, and more. However, we still haven’t seen much in terms of the larger world and story. Thankfully, Square Enix just dropped a new piece of gameplay that showcases exactly that.
The video introduces us to the “Tanta” witches that rule the land of Athens. We see a boss fight with one and an interesting sequence where the other creates a devious, twisted version of New York to hunt down our hero, Fry. We also get a sneak peek at Breakbeasts – powerful enemies that can be fought within the Break, a dark force that will periodically take over Earth. Check out the latest Forspoken showcase for yourself below (warning, video contains some spoilers).
Looks interesting. We hope they really push each coach in Tanta as a unique challenge. Intrigued and want to try out the game for yourself? The Forspoken demo is available now via the PlayStation Store. This is the official description of the game…
Forspoken follows the journey of Frey, a young New Yorker who is transported to the beautiful and rugged land of Athena. In search of a way home, Frey must use her newfound magical abilities to traverse a sprawling landscape and battle monstrous creatures.
- Beautiful and cruel open world – Explore the sprawling realms of Athena, an amazing land of fantastic scenery and otherworldly creatures brought to life through stunning graphics and cutting-edge technology.
- An arsenal of customizable spells – Take on quirky monsters in magical combat with a wide range of abilities that cater to a variety of play styles – from fast-paced and exhilarating to strategic and methodical.
- Parkour is intuitive and enhanced with magic – Scaled walls, vault through valleys, leap from dizzying heights, and dash across vast landscapes. Fry’s unique abilities allow her to seamlessly traverse the open world with ease.
