While the aforementioned playable demo drops players in the middle of an adventure, our very own Kai had the chance to experience Forspoken from the get-go, highlighting how the experience can take a while to get started, as Freya’s abilities are very limited at the start of her journey in Athena.
Without a full set of parkour abilities, traversing Athena can sometimes be a chore, especially when it comes to climbing uphill. The ability to link up that players can test for themselves in the current playable demo is a later unlock, with players mostly only having access to Flow as the first unlocked movement ability (used by holding down the left analog stick and circle button). All the fancier moves, from running on water etc., remain as teasers in the gameplay footage and will be something players can look forward to discovering for themselves.
Forspoken launches on PC and PlayStation 5 on January 24th. You can head here to find out all there is to know about the game developed by Luminous Production and its unique features.
