Square Enix and Luminous Productions revealed a new trailer this evening for Forspoken. This new trailer offered up a new glimpse at the game that Square Enix first showed off back in September 2021.

The new trailer provides us with a bit more story in this action-adventure title. It also shows off some fresh gameplay.

Forspoken was also given a release date of May 24, 2022. It will be released for the PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store.

From the looks of the game listing on Steam, the base price of this title will be $69.99 (USD) on all platforms. A game with a black female protagonist and priced at $70? I'm sure the Steam Discussions are remaining very civil right now.

In the new trailer, fans are given a closer look at the mysterious land of Athia and meet some of its last remaining citizens. Players also learn about the impending corruption called the “Break”: a devastating miasma that relentlessly corrupts everything it touches. Frey has somehow mysteriously survived this strange phenomenon, offering Athia a beacon of hope.

New action-packed gameplay featured in the trailer showcases how Frey’s quest in Athia will take her through a variety of diverse environments where she will learn how to use magic parkour to traverse across the unknown land in a fast and fluid manner, as well as her magic abilities to battle Athia’s dangerous beasts that she will encounter on her journey, including the newly revealed Breakzombies and Jabberwock.

Players were also introduced to a new character in Forspoken—the maddened evil sorceress, Tanta Prav—who is voiced and performed by The Walking Dead’s (TV Series) Pollyanna McIntosh. “It’s been wild playing Tanta Prav and I’m excited for players to meet her and experience her as Frey does: a remorseless, unrelenting powerhouse, full of secrets,” said McIntosh. “I think she will prove to be a ruthless adversary for players as they follow Frey on her journey in the land of Athia.”
