Forspoken Gamescom gameplay trailer takes a deeper look at magic-filled combat

Forspoken

Square Enix and Luminous Productions just dropped a new Forspoken trailer at Gamescom 2022.

The highly anticipated action-RPG Forspoken just got a brand new ten-minute gameplay trailer that debuted during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

The new trailer gives players a deeper look at Forspoken’s magic-enhanced combat and parkour in action, as well as the corrupted enemies and stunningly beautiful yet cruel world that they will encounter.

Here is a description of the trailer from Square Enix:

The new gameplay footage provides players with the deepest look yet at some of the areas they will encounter in Athia, including Cipal the last remaining haven where the surviving Athians take refuge from the devastating Break, a powerful force that corrupts everyone and everything it touches. Cipal serves as a key location for Frey as she can collect and trade information and goods in preparation for the corrupted land and beasts that she faces off with in her attempt to save Athia.
 
The gameplay trailer follows Frey on a quest from Athian archivist Johedy, as she ventures into the wilds of two corrupted areas, Praenost and Avoalet. The two realms featured in the trailer give players a glimpse of the different enemies they will encounter and showcases the versatility of Frey’s magical combat skills. Players can choose to wreak magical havoc on enemies, fighting in a controlled frenzy and unleashing a barrage of quick-fire spells or they can take a more methodical approach wielding powerful and calculated attacks on their adversaries. In Forspoken, no two fights are ever the same.
 
Players are also given a closer look at Frey’s magic-enhanced parkour skills that enable her to seamlessly and quickly traverse Athia readying for her next big battle or fight. Using the magic-enhanced parkour system, players can explore Athia’s lush landscapes and discover a variety of rewards that will enhance Frey’s journey and skillset, including mana, which players can use to unlock new magical abilities; powerful gear for stat boosts and increases; as well as collectable items for crafting and trading, and more. The new gameplay footage also gives players a glimpse of how Frey’s magic-enhanced parkour can be used in conjunction with her combat skills in battle, enabling her to evade enemy attacks while inflicting damage in a fast and fluid manner.

Forspoken is coming exclusively to PlayStation 5 on consoles and PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and Microsoft Store. It launches on January 24, 2023. The Forspoken: In Tanta We Trust Story DLC will be available Summer 2023.
