Forspoken was slapped with an 18 rating, which is basically the European equivalent of the ESRB’s Mature. The listing reveals the “use of strong language (‘f**k’) as well as milder terms,” plus realistic violence.
The player’s character can order alcoholic drinks at a bar. The drinks affect the player’s statistics, but do so in a random manner with negative outcomes possible.
The game also includes scenes of realistic violence, including a woman being set upon by a group of thugs who punch and kick her and hold a gun to her head. There is also violence against fantasy characters, who are knocked backwards by attacks and bleed yellow blood.
Forspoken is scheduled for release on October 11, 2022 for PS5 and PC. However, it has been suggested that the game will be delayed if Square Enix decides to release Final Fantasy 16 in 2022.
