Last year, Square Enix and Luminous Productions introduced us to Project Athia; a project teased as a PlayStation 5 exclusive. At the Square Enix Presents event just held, we now know the real title of the game, and a little more about the world at its heart.

Welcome to the world of Forspoken.

You’ll play as Frey Holland, a young woman with magical abilities. She’ll need to master those in order to “survive in a fantastical and dangerous land called Athia.

In the title reveal trailer, it was also announced that actress Ella Balinska would be portraying Frey. She’s best known recently for starring in 2019’s Charlie’s Angels reboot, and she’s excited to help bring Frey to life. In a blog post from Square Enix, she says that “Frey as a character is real, she’s raw, she’s a girl who lost her way—both figuratively and literally—and is a character I immediately connected with, as I feel many people around the world will too when they set off on this adventure.”

I’m even more excited for what’s to come from Luminous Productions after seeing these new details. Forspoken is set to release in 2022 for the PlayStation 5 and PC!
