Square Enix revealed Project Athia during Sony’s PlayStation 5 event today.

Luminous Productions is behind Project Athia. That’s the same team that created Final Fantasy XV, the role-playing game that came out in 2016 and sold almost 9 million copies.

Athia will be a PS5 exclusive. A short gameplay demo showed a woman fighting monsters and exploring some intense locations. Late on Twitter, writer Gary Whitta (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Book of Eli) noted he led the writing team for this. He’s worked on game narrative for Telltale’s The Walking Dead, Prey, and Gears of War.
