Forspoken Reveals Various Open-World Activities in Latest Trailer

Luminous Productions and Square Enix today dropped a new trailer showcasing what open-world activities await players in Forspoken.

Athia, the game’s setting, is a large, sprawling landmass ripe for exploration. Protagonist Frey Holland will explore the world as she seeks to save Athia from the Break, and along the way are a series of optional activities that both challenge and help the player. For example, Monuments provide a boost to stats, Flashbacks provide Mana (used to unlock new spells), and Founts of Blessing boosts her skills.

There are also various activities that provide challenges. Spellcraft Challenges help Frey hone her available abilities and make them more powerful. Old Coins littered throughout the world can be traded in at specific trading spots for valuable items. Difficult dungeons called Locked Labyrinths lie underground with powerful minibosses to battle, and then there are the Break beasts, powerful creatures wandering the landscape that’ll really test your abilities. Overall, there does seem quite a bit to do in Athia, we’ll just have to wait and see how the whole game turns out.

Forspoken launches January 24, 2023 on PS5 and PC.
