Following the acquisition of Obsidian Entertainment by Microsoft. The highly regarded company has revealed and discussed many exciting new titles and concepts for future video game projects. Just like Advoue.
Obsidian’s next big role-playing game (RPG) will be called Avowed, and it’s perhaps the most interesting of them all. Here’s everything we’ve learned so far in preparation for Xbox and the Bethesda Game Showcase!
What is a declared game?
Obsidian Entertainment’s upcoming first-person role-playing game (RPG) will be called Avowed and will be set in a fantasy universe. Obsidian is best known for its efforts on Fallout: New Vegas in 2010 and The Outer Worlds in 2019. Since then, they launched the title at the July 2020 Xbox event and have remained relatively quiet on the project.
However, the popular Pillars of Eternity series spin-off Avowed is set somewhere in Eora within the universe of these games. Other than that and some visual continuity in its reveal trailer, we don’t know how these two very different RPGs are connected. Yet the fact that they are creates an intriguing juxtaposition.
Announced release date
At the time this article was written, there is no official release date set for Avowed past other than the generic year “2022”. While there were no substantiated reports of Avowed’s delay, there were also no official updates on the game, and the Xbox E3 2021 event passed without that. the game is shown.
Many people are hoping that the Microsoft and Bethesda conference scheduled for June 12, 2022 will finally get a new update on Avowed and others currently missing in action titles such as Fable; however, nothing has been confirmed yet.
Will Advocate be available for Xbox Game Pass?
Avowed is a proprietary title published by Xbox Game Studios. This is because Microsoft just acquired Obsidian Entertainment and became the owner of the company. It says Avowed will be offered at launch to all Xbox Game Pass users at no additional cost to those who already have a subscription.
Trailer – What can we learn?
The first Avowed teaser, shown to audiences at the recent Xbox event, takes us on a tour through a diverse medieval setting. The tour begins in a castle that was damaged in battle. It is now controlled by an empire of queens and kings “which has always known war”. According to the narrator, this empire directly fell into a state of decay, which resulted in the loss of his vows and the emergence of an unknown hostile entity.
It would seem that the crimes committed by this empire gave rise to the evil monsters that appear in this game (the skeletons have been verified as one of them!), and the player character is destined to come into conflict with these enemies at some point. The factual video ended with the question, “Is an oath worth the weight of a crown?” This gives the impression that the fates of the player may be intertwined with those of royalty. And that they may have to face their destiny head-on to successfully rebuild the destroyed empire.
There was a fascinating leak, which received some popularity on ResetEra in late July. This contrasts with the lack of information on Avowed provided by Obsidian and Microsoft.
A user named Sponger has made many factual claims regarding Avowed. What we will summarize here. Because any additional evidence did not support these statements. You need to make sure that you take what you are about to read with a grain of salt. Either way, it’s a thought-provoking subject.
Sponger claims the next game will have a completely open environment and be “much bigger than Skyrim”. Leaks claim that the game would be set in The Living Lands of Eora. And will have both a real-time weather system and support for mods.
While defending against the “imminent threat of tyranny” serves as the focal point of the narrative. Players would have the ability to team up with allies and engage in battle against “huge” bosses. And negotiate with the gods. The leaker claims that Obsidian intends to give players the ability to “kill everyone in the game.” And it is also said that the conversation would have some interactivity.
Are these leaks reliable?
According to Sponger, as of July 2020, the game has been in development for two years and seven months. And “about 100 people” work there, maybe that number could increase. The final claim is that the game’s creators are looking at the time between late 2022. and early 2023 as a potential release window for the game. Again, none of this should be taken at face value. letter ; we cannot confirm or reject these leaks. And Obsidian hasn’t disclosed enough information about Avowed to support any of these claims.
