When we first announced Project Athia last year, we were overwhelmed with joy to see the excitement and conversations being shared by fans online. Now, finally, we are ready to share the official title and logo of the game with you:
I’m also excited to share a brand new scene from the game, which you can see here:
Forspoken is an action RPG where you play as Frey Holland, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantasy and dangerous land called Athia. As Frey, you will embark on a thrilling otherworldly adventure and face treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind the unknown land of Athia and awaken something much more from within.
As you will see in the new clip for the game, Frey is able to travel the world with incredible speed and fluidity. I can’t wait for players to find out how satisfying it is to cross Athia, climb cliffs, and jump through ravines in the future.
Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, and we’re excited to announce that actor Ella Balinska is playing the character. We were looking for someone who could convincingly play the dynamic character of Frey, and we immediately knew that Ella was the perfect person to play her. From the start, Ella understood the themes and concept of the game and was able to channel them into her performance to bring Frey’s character to life. Not only is Ella talented and fits the role of Frey well, but she’s also extremely passionate about Forspoken as her first video game project.
And There you go! On behalf of Square Enix and the entire Luminous Productions team, we hope you enjoyed this preview. Creators are working hard around the world on the development of Forspoken, and we can’t wait for you to experience Frey’s story in 2022.
