While in some cases developers use demos for their games to just promote them even more, some others use them as the base to see what people think of them. Square Enix is doing exactly this. Forspoken, a game that was announced quite a while ago, had a PS5 demo not long ago. While some people were not that surprised by it, some others were and gave good feedback. It would seem that the Forspoken PS5 Demo players are encouraging Square Enix to make some changes to the game before its release. This is great because, given the game’s scope, we can either be going toward a good game or a Cyberpunk-type launch.
The Forspoken PS5 Demo feedback is making developers make some changes with the HDR, text size, and more
There are a few changes coming after the Forspoken PS5 Demo and they are great. It is always nice to see companies taking player feedback into account to fix their games. This is a trend that many companies have started to follow. World of Warcraft had the bad habit of never communicating things with players that much, and yesterday we got a lengthy roadmap for 2023. Now, Square Enix is jumping on that train as well, hoping to make some changes after the Forspoken PS5 Demo.
It's amazing to see so many of you enjoying your time in Athia with the #Forspoken Demo on PS5.

How to play the Forspoken Demo
The official Twitter account shared some of the changes the developers will make in the game. While none of them include gameplay elements so far, they caught wind of things that players said, including stuff like HDR issues, text size, and button mapping. The latter is a must-have feature nowadays. Some people are still a bit unimpressed with the combat of the game, but a demo can’t give us the full scope of a finished title. Still, we hope that the changes after the PS5 Forspoken Demo are great and convince more players of getting the game when it launches next year.
