Square Enix and Luminous Productions have kicked off the release of a three-part video series, offering players a deeper look into the gameplay mechanics for their action-RPG, Forspoken. The first video in the series focuses on protagonist Frey Holland’s magic-enhanced parkour and traversal skills, as well as the variety of spells at her disposal.
The next video in the series, Forspoken – Deep Dive | Magic Combat, releases on November 3rd. This second video will dive into the fundamentals of Frey’s magical combat skills. The final video, Forspoken – Deep Dive | Exploring Athia, will release on November 10th, and will showcase quests, challenges and various activities.
Forspoken uses the Luminous Engine and will be coming only on current-gen systems. Furthermore, the game will take advantage of DirectStorage on PC. Square Enix has promised to reveal more tech details about it in the near future.
Square Enix has delayed the game twice so far. The publisher was originally planning to release the game in May 2022. Then, in March 2022, Square Enix delayed it until October 2022. And now, the game will come out on January 24th, 2023.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
