About Forspoken

Forspoken is a new action RPG that tells the story of a young woman named Frey. Her journey begins after she is transported from her home of New York City to the magical yet dangerous world of Athia. As she searches for a way home, Frey must also use and master her new abilities to traverse the sprawling landscape and battle fierce enemies. Fortunately, however, Frey isn’t completely alone.

Throughout her journey, Cuff, a sentient bracelet wrapped around her arm, guides her. Through Cuff, Frey gains many new magical abilities that aid her in both battles and traversal. Trailers from the game highlight the fast-paced action through Frey’s high-velocity parkour and combat. As she uncovers her ultimate destiny to save Athia and return home, Frey must also come face to face with the imposing evil Tantas.
