Announced somewhat to everyone's surprise during the Xbox Games Showcase on July 23, Avowed is a first-person RPG that will try to establish itself in the very competitive genre by overshadowing The Elder Scrolls franchise, for example. So little information has been shared, a long leak has emerged on ResetEra, which has been approved by Korbille, a reliable and credible insider, who for example announced that Fable would be back before its officialization. However, we advise you to take the information below with a grain of salt.
Thus, the RPG developed by Obsidian Entertainment would be an open world "much larger than Skyrim" with incredibly high density and contrast. The developers want to emphasize the responsiveness of the world and a new generation AI, to offer an even more immersive experience, with a “real-time” weather system.
The character creation tools are "very advanced" while the factions present will be very varied. Sponger, the person behind this leak, nevertheless specifies that the approach is different from Skyrim, especially for the factions. As for the game itself, many bosses will be involved, in the same universe as that of Pillars of Eternity, and a certain respect for customs will be put in place. avowed will support dynamic dialogues and the developers are working on the option "to be able to kill everyone in the game". Two large cities will be available, consisting of several smaller areas. It even looks like players can swim.
Finally, with regard to the aspect of development, we learn that more than a hundred people have worked on the title for more than two years, and that the production is currently running at full speed, with a team that will grow over time. As expected, its release is not expected immediately, since it is currently scheduled for the end of 2022 or the beginning of 2023.
avowed is planned for PC and Xbox Series X.
