Is Forspoken Coming to the Playstation 4?
Forspoken, the highly-anticipated action role-playing title developed by Luminous Productions and published by Square Enix, is currently only confirmed to be available on the Playstation 5 and PC (via Steam). There are currently no official announcements on a possible Playstation 4 port in the near future.
In an interview with VG247, Forspoken director Takeshi Aramaki has stated that the game was designed with the full graphical capabilities of the PS5 in mind. Below is a section from VG247’s article where Mr. Aramaki explains why the Forspoken will likely not come out on the PS4 any time soon.
“From the very early stages of game design, we always thought about doing something that could only be done on PS5,“ says, Takeshi Aramaki, head of studio at Luminous Productions and Forspoken director, via interpreter. “Bringing that full power out was something we’ve been aiming for since day one. So I don’t think it would be possible to have Forspoken on PS4 at all, in terms of the engine, or graphics, or anything that we’re doing with gameplay.”
Forspoken is set for launch on January 24th, 2023, on the PS5 and PC.
What is Forspoken?
Forspoken is an open-world action role-playing game that follows the adventures of Frey, a young woman from New York City who is transported to the mysterious world of Athia. Sometime after Frey’s arrival, she awakens her magical powers, allowing her to quickly traverse the vast landscapes of Athia and fend off hordes of demonic entities throughout her journey to return home.
A “Narrative-Driven Adventure”
Forspoken is described as a “narrative-driven adventure” by game director Takeshi Aramaki with emphasis on Frey’s abilities that grant her amazing mobility to move around the massive world of Athia. Using the performance of current-generation platforms (Playstation 5 and PC), Forspoken allows players to experience the freedom of traversing Athia’s terrain with speed and fluidity never before seen in previous action role-playing titles.
