Forspoken PS5 Release Confirmed: Square Enix combines fantasy with action-adventure aspects in its new role-playing game Forspoken. Find the release date and trailers for the next open-world video game. Forspoken, known initially as Project Athia and announced before the PlayStation 5’s release, features stunning aesthetics and gameplay, but its final form is still a mystery.
The game, created by Square Enix’s Luminous Productions, follows the adventures of a lady named Frey as she travels from New York to a massively parallel world. Here, she gains extraordinary abilities and finds herself drawn into a struggle between the natives of this world and the world’s most powerful beings, the Tantas. The gameplay trailer for Forspoken demonstrates an open-world action RPG with a novel and agile movement system. All the information we have thus far is listed here.
Unleashing the Magic: Mark Your Calendars for the Forspoken Demo Release Date
Before January 24, 2023, a demo version of Forspoken will be available to play on the PlayStation 5. Because of how close the release date is to now, a demo for the PS5 version of the game will undoubtedly be made available shortly. Unless, of course, the demo is being delayed in anticipation of the release to sway hesitant customers to make a purchase.
To what extent and when a PC demo will be made available depends on the duration of timed exclusivity. There is no fixed date for the demo of Forspoken at this time. There have been many promos this week in anticipation of The Game Awards.
PlayStation’s planned Forspoken gaming webcast may indicate the demo’s imminent release date. The stream itself will begin this Friday, December 9th, at 10 AM PT / 6 PM GMT. The week has been full of leaks and leakers, with the famous horror leaker Golem Dusk hinting at a possible FEAR remake in 2023 and the release date and download size for Diablo 4 being revealed on the Xbox Store.
Mark your calendars – 2023 starts with a bang:
➕ Jan 24 – Forspoken
➕ Feb 10 – Hogwarts Legacy
➕ Feb 28 – Destiny 2: Lightfall
➕ Mar 17 – Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
➕ Mar 24 – Resident Evil 4

Where Can You Find Forspoken? The Platform Reveal
Forspoken will be available on the PC and, for a limited time, the PS5. Before this announcement, the duration of the PS5 exclusive status was unknown; however, the date of January 23, 2025, has now been confirmed.
A little portion of print explaining the exclusivity can be seen in the new Play Like Never Before trailer. In acceptable type, it says, “Forspoken will be accessible on January 24, 2023. It’s a PS5 exclusive until January 23, 2025. Xbox players, I’m sorry to say that you’ll have to wait two years to play this.

Unleashing the Secrets of Forspoken: A Mysterious Adventure Awaits
The initial Forspoken trailer featured both in-game action and cinematic cutscenes. In a flashback, Frey Holland (Ella Balinska) is complaining to her cat about how much she despises the city after being beaten up by some criminals. She then enters a portal on a rooftop and is sent to another realm.
When she gets there, a voice from her new bracelet informs her that she has traveled to an alternate Earth. Frey is declared that she has gained access to new magical skills that can be utilized in battle and to swiftly travel across the game’s expansive globe.
As the trailer closes, Frey learns she has been invited to this magical world as “their final hope” to confront a formidable sorceress, Tanta Sila. The inhabitants of this realm live in constant fear of a sorceress or other terrible magic user known only as Tanta.

Unveiling the Enigmatic Tantas of Forspoken
In the early trailers for Forspoken, the ‘Tantas’ were heavily emphasized as the game’s primary enemies. Frey faces several enemies, most of whom will appear as bosses before he faces Tanta Sila, “the fiercest and most formidable of all the Tantas.” But who are these Tantas, and why must Frey fight them?
The PlayStation Blog published a piece explaining the Tantas’ villainous nature in further depth. The Tantas are claimed to have ruled the land of Athia, where Forspoken takes place, as a council of good sorcerers in the past. It appears that all Tanta was female and had specialized roles in keeping society functioning efficiently.
But suddenly, the Tantas were corrupted, turning from wise and loving rulers to ruthless tyrants, and they also seemed to stop cooperating and the people of Athia. Tanta Prav, introduced in the second Forspoken trailer, appears even more unstable than Sila. Due to this meeting, an apparent boss battle between Fray and Prav will also occur.
Tantas likely view Fray as a threat because she has the power to defeat them and the people of Athia look to her as a potential savior. But we think the Tanta is only the public face of a more sinister enemy, one that is ultimately responsible for their corruption.
Tanta As the former commander of Athia’s armed forces, Sila earned the nickname “Tanta of Strength” before an event known as the “Break” (which likely contributed to Sila’s deterioration into a military dictator) occurred. Before the Split, Prav was a judge-like entity known as the “Tanta of Justice.” As a result of recent events, however, Prav has transformed into “A cruel executioner with a distorted sense of justice.”
When new details emerge regarding the Tantas and the other players in Forspoken, we’ll share them with you. Our interest lies primarily in how their descriptions of the characters will affect the game’s mechanics and the challenges posed by the bosses.
