People will learn more about Forspoken’s characters and world in the In Tanta We Trust DLC in about two months. Square Enix offered a release date for the add-on. It will debut on May 26, 2023. It also explained how the DLC’s story will go. Frey will still star in it, but this will be a prequel.
While the announcement didn’t note if the Forspoken DLC begins after the ending or during Frey’s adventure, it did establish that Frey will be going back in time. While she still exists, she’ll go 25 years into the past to the Purge of the Rheddig. She and Tanta Cinta will use their powers to deal with the Break. However, given the nature of the game, this could mean that there will be significant spoilers if someone hasn’t already finished Frey’s story.
This means that the add-on will launch after Luminous Productions is absorbed into Square Enix. At the end of February 2023, Square Enix announced the merger. That is set to happen on May 1, 2023. When it was announced, Luminous confirmed its efforts ahead of then would be focused on Forspoken patches and the add-on.
Forspoken is available on the PS5 and PC, and the In Tanta We Trust DLC arrives May 26, 2023.
