Square Enix has released a cinematic trailer for the upcoming action RPG Forspoken, showing protagonist Frey Holland running and fighting. The trailer meshes together Frey’s life in New York City and her life in Athia. In the New York sections she is running from people, while in the Athia segments she is both running and fighting.

In our Forspoken preview, Stefan wrote, “There’s something to Forspoken, and it’s clear from spending an extended time playing that certain trailers and last week’s demo haven’t always put the best foot forward. The narrative works well to drop you into this fantasy world, the magic Frey wields feels powerful, the action is often frenetically acrobatic, and the speed at which you zip around the world is enticing. We’ve only scratched the surface of what this game can be, and I’m certainly keen to see more when it comes out early next year.”

Forspoken was originally revealed in 2020 under the name Project Athia. When the name Forspoken was confirmed game star Ella Balinska, who plays Frey Holland, said,“As the first video game I’ve worked on, and growing up a huge fan of video games myself, it’s remarkable to see the incredible world and story of Forspoken come together, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. Frey as a character is real, she’s raw, she’s a girl who lost her way—both figuratively and literally—and is a character I immediately connected with, as I feel many people around the world will too when they set off on this adventure.”

The story of Forspoken follows Frey Holland who is ripped from our world and transported to the fantasy world of Athia, where she discovers she has magical powers and needs to learn to master them to survive. Forspoken will be released on January 24th for PS5 and PC.
