The news comes on the heels of reports of players experiencing a variety of issues with Forspoken performance wise, particularly on PC platforms. The game has also received middling reviews, with Shacknews’ own Ozzie Mejia remarking that, “Forspoken's magical parkour system has a lot of potential and can be fun. It offers a novel means of traversal, if nothing else. However, the combat and the vast world aren't enough for me to overlook many of Forspoken's other issues, which mainly start with Frey Holland herself.”
