Forspoken Demo Gets Quality-of-Life Improvements, PC Requirements Released – Even though Forspoken hasn’t even launched yet, its demo is already getting more quality of life features. Creative producer Raio Mitsuno stated numerous additional elements will be added to Forspoken’s demo later today in a video message that was posted earlier today.
Mitsuno explained, “We wanted to do everything we could to make the demo as delightful an experience as possible during this time. We have been listening to your reactions and feedback on the demo. To that aim, following tonight’s update, the Forspoken Demo, which has been playable on the PS5 since December, will support remapping control inputs. Other quality-of-life improvements include adjusting text size, making locked-on foes stay locked-on longer after they leave the screen, and fixing technical issues.
Along with the new features and bug patches, Forspoken’s PC specifications were also made public, and boy are they impressive. A GTX 1060 and 16 GB of RAM are the absolute minimum requirements for playing the game at 720p at 30 frames per second. An RTX 3070 and 24 GB of RAM are required to play the game at 1440p at 30 frames per second. Because of this, Forspoken is possibly the most difficult PC game ever created, excepting Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Forspoken’s demo is only accessible on the PS5, so players haven’t yet had a chance to try it on a PC. However, as the demo only allows players to explore its open environment and participate in combat, there are no spoilers in it. Some players have become so immersed in the Demo that they have spent dozens of hours levelling up to the 99th level cap, which is an odd feat considering that progress made in the Demo won’t carry over to the Final Product.
The protagonist of Forspoken is a young Black lady named Frey Holland who is miraculously transferred from New York to the world of Athia. There, she learns how to wield magic to protect herself from Athia’s many dangers and to battle the oppressive rulers who want to use Frey’s power for their own purposes.
