Forspoken PS5 Overview Trailer Shows Off Dynamic Action and the Game’s Open World

Forspoken

Square Enix and Luminous Productions’ Forspoken is one of the biggest question marks on the near horizon, but a new 4K overview trailer provides a good amount of fresh insight into how the game will actually play. We get a new look at the world of Forspoken, including the capital of Cipal and surrounding areas. You won’t find any NPCs outside of the main city, although there are treasure chests to find, glowing XP orbs to collect, and other POIs to explore. Two of the most important will be Belfries, which will reveal key points on the map, and Pilgrim’s Refuges where you can sleep and craft.

Honestly, the world of Forspoken looks a bit generic – nothing you’ve seen before if you’ve played a JRPG or open-world game – but thankfully, combat is looking better than it has in the past. The choppy framerates we saw in some past PS5 footage seem to be fixed and everything looks fairly fluid and dynamic. The new trailer also reveals there’s a ranking system, with players assigned grades for each combat encounter, so it seems there will be a fair amount of room to master the game’s systems. You can check out the Forspoken overview trailer for yourself, below.
