The first hour of Forspoken, Square Enix’s upcoming action RPG, has leaked online, as basic screen capture on a PS5 version of the game. Fans that want to avoid spoiling the first few cutscenes and first hour of gameplay of Forspoken should avoid watching the video in order to go into the game with no knowledge of any features or unrevealed content.
Forspoken follows the story of Frey Holland, a protagonist that is thrust from her life in New York City into the beautiful but dangerous fantasy land of Athia, where the Break has plagued the land and its inhabitants. Seemingly resistant or impervious to the Break, Frey is set upon a journey to free Athia from its clutches and restore the land to its former glory.
Insider Gaming posts a story about a leak for the first hour of Forspoken, complete with screen capture video. The leak comes via the ResetEra Forums and shows off Forspoken‘s slightly improved user interface, the initial cutscenes of the game, some gameplay footage, in-game items, combat, and more. There isn’t a whole lot in the video that hasn’t been revealed officially, but there are definitely a few things that were not shown off in official information released about the game. Fans that are interested in watching the video can follow the source link at the bottom of this article to Insider Gaming’s post.
Forspoken is one of the first major open-world games in 2023, coming out in less than a week on January 24. The game has been delayed a few times and is finally ready for release and many fans are excited to get their hands on the action RPG as soon as it comes out so they can engage in the game’s magical combat and traverse the world using its unique magic parkour system.
Many fans around the world have been enjoying the recently updated Forspoken demo and pouring dozens of hours into it as they practice the game’s combat and parkour traversal. The demo takes place in a sandbox-style area of the map in which players can freely roam around and explore while also going to set areas to accomplish certain smaller objectives.
Though there is a lot of controversy about Forspoken around the internet, including its hefty PC system requirements, use of Denuvo DRM, late release of review embargo, and more, the hype for the game is still very real for many fans that have pre-ordered the game and have been waiting for quite some time for its release.
Forspoken launches on January 24 for PC and PS5.
