It should never come as any surprise that a game not made exclusively for consoles will have some extra features when it comes to the PC version, and that is what we are seeing once again with Forspoken. It is still landing on January 24th for the PS5 as well, but this is all about the extras that we will have if we have the PC powerful enough and the screens wide enough to see it all. I think Luminous Productions has as many in mind when pumping out all of these extra features, but it is all something to take into account when figuring out where you are going to be playing Forspoken. If you have all of the various options to do that, at least. Let us dive right into all of that for now.
Just as we have had with various other titles out there, Forspoken will be offering up various performance settings that will let us enjoy the game up to 4K, 60 fps, and with full HDR to make sure the lighting and shading dazzle our eyes. There will also be various options to allow us to use the wide screens to their full potential too. Also, for those that still want to have the PS5 feel for the PC version of Forspoken, there are all of the options to play the game using your DualShock 4 or DualSense controller along with it all. It is not clear if those features that have been set for the console will be there for the controller, but it would make sense that would be the case here. Have a look and see how fancy it might look if you have the hardware to do so.
Forspoken — PC Features
Square Enix and Luminous Productions released a new video that provided a first look at their upcoming title, Forspoken, running on PC and shared new details of PC specs and features that players can expect to enjoy from the PC version (via Steam, Microsoft Store, and Epic Games Store) when it launches on January 24, 2023.
The new Forspoken PC video showcases both gameplay and in-game cinematics footage from the PC version of the game, and highlights some of the PC specs and features that will be available to players on the PC version at launch, including:
Those who pre-order Forspoken digitally on PC via the Steam, Microsoft Store, or Epic Games Store will receive a Spectra Combo Necklace, Elite Cloak, and Overclock Nails to aid them in their journey through Athia.
Forspoken will harness the full power of the latest technologies and demonstrate Luminous Productions’ philosophy to provide a gaming experience like never before, fusing together the latest technology with creativity. Forspoken will launch simultaneously on PlayStation 5 console and the PC (via Steam, Microsoft Store, and Epic Games Store) on January 24, 2023.
Will you be looking to play Forspoken on the PC after all of this or will you be going with the console to make sure you have the base experience others will have? Do you think it will look as fluid at all times or have these videos been captured on systems that far exceed the PC specs that we have been offered for the game? Do you expect the controllers will have the same feel and features that the PS5 version will have or will it be the basic rumbles that we get instead? Feel free to talk about all of this in the comment sections and let the discussion flow. If we have anything else to offer up for Forspoken, we will share it all here for you. Please keep checking back in for those updates and the other things the team will be bringing you.
