The whole thing is accompanied by cinematic pre-rendered sequences in which the game world and some monsters are portrayed. In addition, it has now been announced that the title uses the quite controversial Denuvo copy protection for the PC version. The third-party program from the Austrian manufacturer of the same name provides video games with anti-tamper measures and various protective mechanisms against illegal copies. Titles like Battlefield 2042 or FIFA 23 already use Denuvo. But the copy protection is very controversial as it is said to negatively affect the performance of the games.
The technology hope is being developed by Square Enix and Luminous Productions for the Playstation 5 and the PC. Players of the action role-playing game slip into the role of the young protagonist Frey Holland and follow her mysterious journey from the metropolis of New York City to the fairy-tale land of Athia, teeming with hostile creatures.
In the first tests, the open-world title was already able to convince the critics in terms of play. A varied and lively game world should invite you to linger in Athia. The numerous attacks of the protagonist and exciting boss fights also contribute to the fun of the game. However, the majority of the testers found the story and the way it was told to be too shallow.
