During the Future of Gaming livestream revealing the PlayStation 5, Square Enix and Luminous Productions offered a first look at their new title, Project Athia. The game, which presumably began production when Hajime Tabata was working at Square Enix (I'm pretty sure I spotted him in the presentation!), certainly looks like the sort of gorgeous fantasy adventure we've come to expect from the company!
Check out the announcement trailer below, as well as a statement from the developers.
Project Athia is the culmination of our philosophy here at Luminous Productions to create completely new and fresh gaming experiences that fuse together the latest technologies with art. With PS5, our vision truly comes to life, and with Project Athia players can look forward to being transported to a vast and detailed world filled with beauty and dismay.
Project Athia will take you on a thrilling other-worldly adventure — it is going to be action-packed, and at times twisted, tempestuous, and forbidding. It is a journey that we want to feel as much yours as it is our protagonists.
We are hard at work on making full use of the exciting potential of the PS5 hardware for this project. While today was just a sneak peek, we'll have a lot more to show you in the future and we can't wait to tell you more about the game.
Stay tuned to RPGFan for more coverage of Project Athia!
