Forspoken was announced by Square Enix as the debut game for the new Luminous Productions. The game was known before as Project Athia and it will enable players to follow Frey Holland who must control her magical abilities in the land of Athia. It was also reported that Ella Balinska did the performance for Frey. Forspoken will be released in 2022 for PC and PS5. Talking about the game and Frey, Balinska said:
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. 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.
