Project Athia Revealed Developed by Square Enix’s New Studio
Under Square’s Enix new studio Luminous, a new game was unveiled under the working title Project Athia for PS5. While not much was given in terms of details but a trailer was released showing some of the environments and what appears to be a main character looking off into the distance on a hill top.
What’s interesting to note is that the trailer looks to be a little similar to what was previewed during the Unreal 5 engine demo. However this game features a more fantasy feel with a fire breathing dragon and some supernatural abilities such as being able to shoot out tree roots from her hands.
The video looks quite otherworldly and shows some impressive leaps from the main character against some virtually stunning backdrops. We do get some hints about the story, being that the main character is “in a world not of her own” and the footwear she’s wearing suggests she’s stepped into another universe.
The title has been described as “a thrilling story-led, action-packed adventure”:

Project Athia has been “designed for Playstation 5” and that the title is a “console exclusive for a limited time”. The trailer also states that the title will available on PC as well. This means it could be coming to other platforms at some point, but first launching on PS5, no window has been announced as of yet.
This looks to be a promising fantasy project, and the featured dragon reminds me a little of Dragon’s Dogma, and if there’s a cool riding on the back of dragon sequence I’m all for it. What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments below.
