Many were hoping that Avowed, the new fantasy RPG from Obsidian (The Outer Worlds, Pentiment, Fallout: New Vegas), would make an appearance at today’s Xbox Games Showcase, and it certainly did.
Bringing with it a two-and-a-half minute trailer packing plenty of actual in-game footage, the Avowed gameplay trailer also reveals the game’s release target of 2024.
Avowed will expand the universe of Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity, letting players loose in a huge and diverse world called the Living Lands. It’ll carry a lot of the familiar Obsidian RPG DNA like first-person combat, helpful and richly-written companions, dense environments to explore and deep player progression. The new gameplay trailer looks to show off a heap of environmental, enemy and weapon variety and seems like a ton of fun to boot.
Avowed is due to release in 2024 for Xbox Series X|S and PC. Take a look at the new gameplay trailer below:
Set in the fictional world of Eora that was first introduced to players in the Pillars of Eternity franchise, Avowed is a first-person fantasy RPG from the award-winning team at Obsidian Entertainment.
Explore the Living Lands, a mysterious island filled with adventure and danger. As an envoy of Aedyr, you are sent to investigate rumors of a spreading plague with a secret that threatens to destroy everything. Can you save the island and your soul from the forces threatening to tear them apart?
