Julia Lee (she/her) is a guides producer, writing guides for games like The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and Genshin Impact. She helped launch the Rift Herald in 2016.

During the big PlayStation 5 stream, Square Enix and Luminous Productions showed off a new title they’re working on called Project Athia.

Not much is known about the game as only a very short glimpse was shown, but it featured a robed woman leaping around the wilderness and even controlling the wildlife. She takes on many different monsters, from wolf-like creatures to floating tentacle-bearing eyeball beasts, all while being surrounded by beautiful scenery.

It’s a little hard to get an impression of what the plot of the game is, but the visuals are so astounding that it almost doesn’t matter.

No release date was given for the game either, so we’ll have to wait quite a bit longer to find out more about the mysterious game. While the works of Square Enix aren’t unfamiliar to big video game fans, Luminous Productions is the studio that branched off of the company after working on Final Fantasy 15.
