LOS ANGELES (Mar. 18, 2021) – During the SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS digital-showcase event,
SQUARE ENIX announced Forspoken™, the debut title from its newly established studio, Luminous
Productions. Originally revealed as PROJECT ATHIA last year, Forspoken puts players in the shoes of
Frey Holland, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastical
and dangerous land called Athia.

As a part of today’s show, the team announced that the game’s protagonist, Frey, will be performed by
Ella Balinska, best known for her starring role in the 2019 film, Charlie’s Angels.

View the new “Forspoken – Official Title Announcement” trailer below:

“As the first video game I’ve worked on, and growing up a huge fan of video games myself, it’s remarkable
to see the incredible world and story of Forspoken come together, blurring the lines between reality and
fantasy,” said Balinska. “Frey as a character is real, she’s raw, she’s a girl who lost her way—both
figuratively and literally—and is a character I immediately connected with, as I feel many people around the
world will too when they set off on this adventure.”

Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, exploring an unknown world and facing treacherous trials to unravel|
the mystery behind Athia. SQUARE ENIX also teased new Forspoken gameplay to give players a glimpse
at the magical and perilous journey ahead.
Designed for the PlayStation®5 console (PS5™), Forspoken will harness the full power of the console and
demonstrate Luminous Productions’ philosophy to provide a gaming experience like never before, fusing
together the latest technology with creativity. The game is being developed simultaneously for the PS5™
and PC and is set for release in 2022. This title is not yet rated by the ESRB.
