PlayStation Japan Tweeted out an announcement trailer for Forspoken on December 9, 2022, probably for the Game Awards. But what caught everyone’s eye was that the Japanese Tweet featured a thumbnail that announced a Forspoken demo. The Tweet has since been deleted making us believe that PS Twitter accidentally revealed there will be a demo announcement for Forpsoken.
Forspoken Demo Announcement
According to the main PlayStation Twitter account, Forspoken will get an 11-minute gameplay showcase on December 9. A very little clip, the stream’s start time, and not much else was included in the tweet.
However, the PlayStation Japan Twitter account, Tweeting almost the same thing but in Japanese, also included a thumbnail for the video clip. And that thumbnail reveals a secret announcement planned in a few hours and titled ‘Forspoken Demo Announcement Trailer.’
Although the Tweet got deleted for obvious reasons, fans were able to screenshot it. The game has been a topic of discussion since its trailer started dropping and getting hands-on time with it will influence the player’s decisions. Forspoken’s trailers have shown promise and a demo would be a great way to see if the game delivers or not.
Forspoken has been developed by Luminous Productions and published by Square Enix. The game follows the story of Frey, a young New Yorker transported to the beautiful and cruel land of Athia. In search of a way home, Frey must use her newfound magical abilities to traverse sprawling landscapes and battle monstrous creatures.
Of course, it’s not the first time PlayStation has made a slip-up. Only this week, the PlayStation store listed Street Fighter 6, its release date, pre-order items, and editions. SF6 is another game rumored to be at TGA today. While Forspoken getting 11-minute gameplay is confirmed it’ll be interesting to see if Sony makes the surprise announcement of the demo as well, which according to the Japanese account is slated for December 10.
Forspoken releases on January 24, 2023, and will be a timed PlayStation and PC exclusive. It will hold the exclusivity till 2025, unlike Final Fantasy XVI which has a 6-month exclusive period.
