Forspoken Is a Modern PS5 Open World Game, Alright
As the launch of Square Enix’s long-awaited Forspoken nears, the Japanese publisher is beginning to peel back the curtain on the PS5 console exclusive. This latest in its ongoing Deep Dive trailer series centers on the open world of Athia, and the various activities that it contains. TL;DW: it’s a modern open world game.
No, but seriously, you’ll find all sorts of activities to engage with: combat trials, collectibles, even wild animals you can tame. There are some neat ideas here: if you discover and complete various photography challenges, for example, then you’ll unlock new features in the game’s Photo Mode. Everything looks like it has a reward attached, which is of course welcome.
