Forspoken is the next big and new franchise from Square-Enix: the publisher is betting on it a lot and continues to show off its baby everywhere. Inevitably, we had to expect an appearance at the Game Awards 2022 with even a pleasant surprise.
Launching a new franchise is never easy and for Forspoken, we feel that Square-Enix wants to do things right: the title has been postponed several times but should indeed be released very soon, in January 2023. Thus, the Game Awards 2022 ceremony held last night was an opportunity to present the game even more. We expected it.
So if you want a new look at this action-RPG, know thathe new trailer reached us during Geoff Keighley’s famous show. This one is available in our video player, above… and it also announces very good news.
A demo for the road
Visibly confident, Square-Enix took advantage of the Game Awards 2022 to announce the availability of a playable demo: you can therefore play Forspoken for free via a small portion provided for, to be downloaded from the PlayStation Store. Because yes, this privileged trial is only available on PlayStation 5 – Sony and Square-Enix definitely get along very well – and not on PC, another platform on which the title will be released.
If you have a PS5, then you know what you have to do: maybe this demo will convince you to pre-order the title if you haven’t already. Besides, we remind you that the title will therefore be released on January 24th.
We also try to point out that we were able to set foot (virtually) in this great open-world not long ago and our detailed opinion is available at this address. Spoiler: we found this rather promising.
