You will be playing as Frey, a young woman from New York, finds herself in Athia, a world both beautiful and brutal. Frey uses her newfound magical talents to explore vast regions and fight horrific creatures as she searches for a route back home.

In this guide, we will let you know 11 things that you need to know before you actually purchase the game. Let’s get started.

11 Things To Know Before You Buy – Forespoken

Side Activities

There will be plenty of side activities that you can do in Forespoken. It is an open world with a vast and huge map that will have certain types of activities for you to check out. Here are some of them:

  • Monuments
  • Side Quests
  • Collectibles
  • Locked Labyrinths
  • Flashback Challenges

Even More Side Activities

If you thought that that was everything, you would be mistaken. There are a lot of side activities that aren’t necessarily part of the game’s world, but part of your own skills and spells. Here are some of them:

  • Spellcraft Challenges
  • Points of Interest
  • Combat Challenges
  • Partha Dice Game

Cuff Functions

You will have a Cuff or a magical Bracelet on the protagonist’s arm. This will be your constant companion throughout the game no matter what you might be doing. It will be casting spells, upgrading, a lot of the lore that goes with it, combat, world scanning, and so on. It will be the most important thing when playing as Frey.

Pilgrim Refugees & Camps

When you’re exploring the world of Anthia and you want to take a break from let’s say the combat, you can do so in special locations such as Camps or the Pilgrim Refugees. These will be your ultimate go-to in these cases.

These are basically safe zones where you know that you can’t be engaged in any combat and are simply there for you to explore the lore, characters, market, side activities, and games, crafting, unlocking spells, equipment upgrade and more.

Demo & Improvements

There has been a Demo of Forespoken on PS5 for a while now and the feedback from gamers playing it has been pretty mixed. The developers have been promising that the game will be upgraded and it’s not going to be in the same state. There have been Demo upgrades too which leads us to believe that these upgrades might be true. Let’s hope for the best, however.

PS5 Storage

The game will be massive from everything we have seen about it so far. This also means that the download size will be a pretty big one. On PS5 the game will have a download size of 87 GB. This doesn’t mean that it is how much it will take up from your storage but the point is – you’ll need plenty of available storage space, to begin with.

PC Features

There have been a lot of things announced for the PC version. There will be many Visual changes to tailor your experience the way you like it, ultra-fast loading times, HDR support, Super Widescreen, 7.1 Audio, Dynamic Refresh Rates, and direct storage implementation. It’s safe to say, the game is going to be good for PC gamers.

Minimum & Recommended Requirements

Here is everything you need to know about whether your system can run Forespoken or not.

Ultra Requirements

As you can see in the picture above, Forspoken can be played on PC on 4K with 60FPS on Ultra settings. For this to be possible however, you will need 32GB or RAM and either a Radon RX 6800 XT with 16 GB VRAM or GeforceGTX 4080 with 16 GB of VRAM and either a Rysen 5 5800X or an i7 i-27000.

Meanwhile, on either of the three settings, you’ll need a whopping 150 GB for free storage space with minimum specs requiring HDD.So yeah, you’ll need quite the best to play it on Ultra.

Playstation Console Exclusivity

Forspoken will be launching as a PS5 Console exclusive but how long will it be before it comes to Xbox? From what we know so far, Forespoken will be at least PS5 exclusive for 24 months before it gets released on the Xbox. That means that until January 2025 we won’t be seeing this game on other consoles than PS.

Those are all the things you need to know about Forespoken before you wish to purchase it on your own. We hope that this guide has given you a good insight into the game before you own it and buy it for playing. A big thank you to GamingBolt for some of their helpful info.

Hogwarts Legacy: How Good Is The Character Creation?

Celebrity is as celebrity does.

Hogwarts Legacy is just around the corner, and if you’re one of those people who always expected an owl to crash into your bedroom to give you a letter of invitation to the school of Witchcraft and Wizardry then congratulations, you’re still a child at heart. One of the many things that muggle-borns are keeping a close eye on is the character creation as this always has been a huge selling point for gamers who wish to see themselves in the game their playing. No argument needed there as it simply adds to the immersion. We’ll see just how good the character creation is by giving it a good wangle!

How Good Is The Character Creation In Hogwarts Legacy?

As the game is still said to be a “work in progress” not everything is set in stone just yet. There’s plenty of options to go through however so let’s see if you can either look like a Korean pop idol of some sort or a child that looks like a melting candle.

So the first thing you will notice once you go to the character creation screen is the plethora of Presets offered to you. This is a good start for players who just want to dive right in and explore the second-floor girls’ lavatory.

Once you have chosen your base look you will be taken to the Facewear section where you can choose your facial structure from a set of fifteen portraits. Some players may prefer having sliders when it comes to specific parts of their custom character’s face as they really have every intention to see a carbon copy of themselves in-game.

When you’re satisfied with the shape that you chose you can also go and specify a skin color and some glasses for your character. Hogwarts is known to have a rather diverse community of students so go be yourself and choose which suits you the best!

Moving on to Hairstyles you have two customization choices, your hair color, and the actual style of well, your hair! There can only be so many options for hair in any game as it’s quite difficult to build this from scratch compared to sculpting the bridge of your nose or adjusting the height of your temple.

Hair can be quite a delicate part of customization, especially when not all options are available to you. Nevertheless, you still have enough choices here to either look like Anton Chigur or The Daywalker. Props to you if you got any of that!

Next is the Complexion tab, you have the option to give yourself a slight blush if or some freckles and moles if you have any. We weren’t kidding earlier either when we said that you can look like you aged prematurely. That’s what the scars and markings are for! At the end of the day it’s all about getting your features down to a T!

On the following tab we have Eyebrows. Most options that we went through gave us the impression that everyone back in the 19th century had time to shave, and that’s a good thing! You can tell a lot from a person’s eyebrows after all. Just don’t get caught looking!

After choosing the shape that fits your fancy you can go and apply any color to it, most likely you will choose the same color you chose for your hair but hey, it’s your choice that matters here so go crazy! The same goes for your eyes as well.

For the final touch, you have four more options. You have two choices for your character’s voice which should’ve had more in our opinion. You can also change the pitch of that voice to resemble yours. Lastly you have your difficulty selection which is pretty straightforward, you also have your character name and which dormitory you want to be sent to.

The character creation in our opinion is good enough where it stands. It’s not great but it’s definitely not bad either. Having the option to choose a preset or create your own character completely from scratch (sliders and all) is a recent concept that players have been searching for a lot lately and it’s much appreciated that Avalanche Software gave that to us.

While others are happy with the choices they’ve been given, we can still see some possible complaints that will go after the Facewear section as limiting your features to only fifteen options is a very daring move given that there’s a chance that a player out there might not get the look they’re after.

It all just goes back to the sliders since this gives the player a more precise selection when it comes to making adjustments to their looks, plus there weren’t too many options for body-type either. It’s not a long list of shortcomings but you will have to take these into consideration if you’re the kind of gamer who spends more than an hour in the customization screen. We’re still looking forward to the game however so don’t let any of that bring you down. Thank you, and see you in the world of magic!
