MILAN (10 December 2021) – At tonight’s The Game Awards, SQUARE ENIX® and Luminous Productions showed a new trailer for the studio’s debut title, Forspoken, announcing the release date of the game worldwide: May 24, 2022.

In the new trailer, fans can take a look at the mysterious land of Athia and meet some of the remaining inhabitants.

Somehow, Frey survived this strange phenomenon, thus offering Athia a thread of hope.
The new action-packed gameplay images in the trailer show how Frey’s mission to Athia will lead her to discover various locations where she will learn how to use her magical parkour to travel this unknown land smoothly and quickly. Also seen are some of the magical abilities she will use to fight Athia’s wild beasts she encounters along her path, including the newly revealed Doom Zombies and Jabberwock.
The players also met a new character from Forspoken, Tantha Prav, the wicked evil witch played by the actress of the TV series The Walking Dead, Pollyanna McIntosh. “It was incredible to play Tantha Prav, and I can’t wait for the players to meet her and get to know her as Frey sees her: an unstoppable, remorseless force of nature, full of secrets.” McIntosh said. “She will prove to be a ruthless opponent for the players who follow Frey on her journey to the land of Athia.”
