Forspoken trailer getting rough response online



So let me get this straight. Im somewhere thats not what I would call the Eurogamer office. Im seeing my name printed on the site. And… oh yeah Im writing meme round-ups for Eurogamer. Yeah okay that is something I do now.

Im sorry, I couldnt resist. The latest Forspoken trailer was really asking for it though.

Forspoken last made the headlines when its release date was pushed back from 11th October this year to 24th January 2023. Its back again, though this time for a more light-hearted reason.


Watch on YouTube

Forspoken gameplay trailer shown at State of Play, March 2022.

A trailer posted on Forspokens Twitter account this week has been raising eyebrows. Its meant to tell us more about the setting of the game and lead character Frey Holland. Instead what it manages to do is fill you up with cringe thanks to the dialogue spoken over some bits of gameplay cut together. Its been dunked on far and wide, and if you dont understand why yet, watch it for yourself.

A beautiful and cruel new land? Twisted monsters? An array of magical abilities? Sentient jewellery!?

The replies to the trailer have been, unsurprisingly, pretty savage.

And then theres a separate level of roasting – the parodies. If you want to imagine your favourite characters talking with Joss Whedons quippy style of dialogue, then look no further.

The good hunter finds themselves somewhere thats not what they would call the waking world.

Heres a dramatic reading of Superman as if Tony Hawk was actually Tony Stark.

Its more surprising that this wasnt one of the lines in Silent Hill 2.

Ace Attorney is prime fodder for this kind of dumbfounded reaction.

So let me get this straight. I’m in a courtroom, I’m seeing freaking prosecutors with whips, and, oh yeah! I’m talking to my dead mentor.

Yeah, okay. That’s something I do know.

I cross examine people, present evidence, I’ll probably say objection next

Uh, that just happened. pic.twitter.com/LQD8t8l3eI

And finally, the obligatory Eurogamer contribution to the meme-train comes from our very own Chris Tapsell.

Rewatched that Forspoken trailer enough times for it to completely melt my brain now. Every email I open my internal monologue is like SO LET ME GET THIS STRAIGHT, Im about to play this VIDEO GAME, sent to me by some RANDOM COMPANY, for my JOB?! and I get freakin PAID for this?!
