You can now play Square Enix's action RPG Forspoken after several launch delays — as a demo, that is. The developer and publisher has released a demo for the PS5 game on the PlayStation Store at this years Game Awards, where it also announced that Final Fantasy XVI will be available for Sony's current-gen console on June 22nd, 2023.
Off the back of announcing several indie titles that are slated to come to the PS5 Demo Fest following The Game Awards, host Geoff Keighley followed up to reveal that Square-Enix’s Forspoken would also be joining the fray, and with a January 2023 release date incoming, it was a fantastic opportunity for players to go hands-on with the title ahead of the game’s release.
Developed by Luminous Productions, a branch of Square Enix, the game involves a woman named Frey being transported from New York to a vast parallel world. Here, she develops superpowers and is pulled into a conflict between the world’s residents and powerful beings known as ‘Tantas’.
Forspoken looks to be an open-world action game with RPG elements, along with a unique, fluid traversal system. Here’s everything we know so far.
Square Enix says the demo will give you a "deeper look at the devastating effects of the Break," which is the powerful force responsible for corrupting everything it touches, the Tantas included. Forspoken will also be available on PC via Steam, Epic Games and the Microsoft Store, but the demo only seems to be available for the PS5.
