Square Enix reveal Project Athia, exclusively for PlayStation 5

Square Enix and developer Lumionous Productions have announced Project Athia (a working title), a fantasy adventure designed from the ground exclusively for the PlayStation 5. It will be a console exclusive whenever it is that it releases, also coming to PC.

Update: Added that the game will also be coming to PC.

Little is known about what the game will entail, but the snippets shown featured supernatural leaps along cliffs, summoning tentacles from the ground to ensnare monstrous wolves, giant eye towers sprouting from the ground, and a huge dragon of sorts.

The trailer cryptically said:

In a world not her own,
Where resolve will be tested,
Truths will be questioned
and devotions will be doubted
she will rise.

We’ll have more on the game as soon as we can.

Update: Game Director Takeshi Aramaki had the following to say on the PlayStation Blog.

We are so excited to be able to share a sneak peek at what we have been working on at Luminous Productions with you today. During the PlayStation 5 showcase, we showed a teaser trailer for the upcoming debut game from our studio, Project Athia (working title).

Project Athia is the culmination of our philosophy here at Luminous Productions to create completely new and fresh gaming experiences that fuse together the latest technologies with art. With PS5, our vision truly comes to life, and with Project Athia players can look forward to being transported to a vast and detailed world filled with beauty and dismay.

Project Athia will take you on a thrilling other-worldly adventure – it is going to be action-packed, and at times twisted, tempestuous, and forbidding. It is a journey that we want to feel as much yours as it is our protagonists.

We are hard at work on making full use of the exciting potential of the PS5 hardware for this project. While today was just a sneak peek, we’ll have a lot more to show you in the future and we can’t wait to tell you more about the game.
