Avowed is the new intellectual property of Obsidian Entertainment and is considered as one of the flagship titles of the Xbox Games Studios, among the most anticipated ever, and finally some details have emerged, albeit unofficial, by an anonymous insider which were then reported in an article by colleagues of Microsoft Central.
The information ranges from what we already know, namely Obsidian’s very obvious style in creating a fantasy role-playing game that you remember very closely the series of The Elder Scrolls, and partly also Skyrim.
However, as also previously clarified by the same Phil Spencer (Executive Vice President of Xbox Section), it seems that the title will have its own very personal style and its gameplay quite different from that of Skyrim. In fact, even the recent report states that Avowed should have its own artistic vision, favoring the equipment system compared to the monumental one of the skills seen in the fifth chapter of the series The Elder Scrolls.
In fact, it seems that there will be a combat system enough complex with different moves and techniques that you can perform to eliminate your opponents in close combat, with different techniques based on the weapons used. Something similar should also be present for mages, with the ability to equip several magical tomes with which “Cast” (create magic) and face enemies.
Before continuing, however, we must specify that all the information in this article is currently only the result of a report and speculations and accordingly we invite you to take such details for Avowed with caution, at least until official confirmation or denial by interested parties.
Continuing on the report that emerged, it seems that both the graphic and game style could in some ways resemble that of Outer World, the famous Obsidian shooter that saw the light a few years ago. In fact, it seems that the color palette may be quite brilliant inside some indoor settings with even bright colors, similar to those already found in the space shooter.
However, the same source is keen to point out that this factor could vary quite a lot, ed be detailed in certain areas and instead resemble in others what has been seen in the only trailer shown to date for the title.
Game structure is also speculated, with potential references to The Outer World also for the multiple maps small in size instead of a single and huge open world, but even this context is not yet clear and awaits further clarification.
However, it seems that in the future there are possibilities to see the title, since it seems that the works are already in a state of working alpha, although still absolutely preliminary and not definitive. However, expectations remain very high for this title that we can’t wait to be able to observe officially.
