Forspoken follows the journey of Frey Holland, a New Yorker who is spirited away to a world called Athia. Here, she is bestowed with a magical talking cuff that grants her powerful spells and incredible mobility. This allows her to scale walls, vault across canyons, leap from dizzying heights, and dash through vast landscapes.
As Frey progresses through the game, she can unlock various spells tied to four disciplines of the arcana, each color associated with one element. These spells can boost Frey’s magic damage and improve her ability to heal herself and others. These abilities will carry her to the end of the game. However, you should now forget that the game has two different endings.
More Than Just One Ending
There are two Forspoken endings to choose from, and you’ll need to decide which one is right for you before you complete the game. If you’re confused about which one to pick, be sure to check out this Forspoken endings guide to get the details you need.
- In the first, you will fight against Susurrus, a demon who is responsible for corrupting Athia. This final boss will challenge you to your limits, so make sure that you’re prepared before tackling this.
- The second ending is more straightforward. Here, you’ll learn that your mother, Tanta Cinta, is actually a dragon and was sent back to Athia to help you defeat Susurrus. This will give you an interesting new perspective on the rest of the story and how your relationship with Cinta has developed throughout Forspoken.
While the second ending does nothing to resolve the problems plaguing Athia since it was first discovered that the Break was affecting it, it leaves the story open to future content. It’s possible that Luminous Productions plans to follow up on Forspoken with more games, but it’s difficult to know how or if this would happen.
What Happens After Defeating the Break?
In the end, she can defeat Susurrus, the golden demon that drove the Tantas mad and destroyed Cipal, the city she’s been living in. By absorbing the demon’s power, she can battle the Break and restore the places of Athia. This is a good ending for Forspoken, but it leaves the player with a sense of bitterness that the game could have done more.
As a result of Frey’s efforts, the Break is still present in the world and continues to pose an ongoing threat. As such, the ending of Forspoken is not necessarily a “good” one, though it does show that the price for victory was high and that Frey still has work to do.
