Hope there’s a Homer comeback

Square Enix has announced a release date for In Tanta We Trust, the DLC expansion for its mythical adventure title Forspoken — The new campaign content will arrive May 26 on PC and PS5.

While the action-packed trailer doesn’t offer much in the way of context, we can see that Frey Holland, now truly coming to terms with the incredible powers afforded her in the kingdom of Athia, has been seemingly joined on the battlefield by no less than Tanta Cinta herself. The two magic-infused warriors will face new enemies and threats as they search for a way to purge Athia of the energy-sucking anomaly known as “The Break”. Players can expect an extension to Athia’s already huge map, as well as new spells, skills, friends and foes. Will we get new cat familiars? I hope so.

Am I going to die on the Forspoken defense hill? No, I am not, the moment has passed and fate has made its decision. But that doesn’t mean that I agree with all of the flack directed towards what was, essentially, a perfectly fine adventure with some excellent stand-out setpieces and some lovely world and character design. While hardly the most original of open-world adventures, I really liked the synergetic combat, I really liked the costuming and special effects, and… fact is… I really liked Frey.

In Tanta We Trust will, quite possibly, be the last we ever hear from the Forspoken franchise, given its disappointing sales, and combined with the fact that developer Luminous Productions has essentially been assimilated into Square Enix proper. If so, I hope that Frey, Athia, and, of course, Homer, are all given a fitting finale that sends the audience home happy.

Forspoken is available now on PS5 and PC. In Tanta We Trust will launch on May 26.
