The review embargo for Forspoken has yet to be revealed, though given that the game’s release is scheduled for two days after the digital pre-load goes live, it’s safe to assume that reviews will go live sometime during this period or on launch day.
Previously, the length/duration of Forspoken’s main story was revealed, and the developer assured that the final build of the game would come with HDR and UI fixes. In a live stream dedicated to Forspoken, Square Enix revealed that the game’s story will have a length of around 30 hours. This does not include side content, however, and the duration is strictly with regards to the main quest.
During the stream, Forspoken Co-Director Takeshi Terada said that the magic in Forspoken is descended from Final Fantasy. With Final Fantasy XV, the studio had a title that specialized in magic. Therefore, it decided to expand upon that element with something newer in its next game, and that’s where Forspoken came in.
Terada mentioned that the studio has designed Forspoken by focusing on the magic component of the Final Fantasy series by further enhancing it, using modern technology. He said that, while it is indeed a completely different IP, it originated from ideas that are have been a part of the Final Fantasy series.
