According to a journalist who has been able to take a first look at it, the game could present news at the Game Awards.
Have Many questions related to Avowed. The next Obsidian game that, with a first trailer that made us fall in love, seemed to be far from bringing us news. However, the developer has already warned that they would soon give more information about its title, something that has already begun through details that put the adventure as if Obsidian did an own version from The Elder Scrolls.
Avowed will be Obsidian’s version of The Elder Scrolls, set in the world of Pillars of EternityThis has been expressed by Jez Corden, a journalist for Windows Central, in an exclusive with which it explains some first impressions from Avowed, which is still far from over. In this sense, the author of the article has been surprised by everything new from Obsidian, since it will follow in the wake of his own universe from Pillars of Eternity to present a first-person shooter RPG set in a medieval and magical context.
But the sensations go beyond this, since the same journalist claims to have been playing something so unique from Obsidian that it could be considered a mix of The Outer Worlds and Pillars of Eternity, which would result a whole new world and out of the imagination of the developer. Since, following the classic trends of RPGs, Avowed would allow us to use a large number of classes and, therefore, experiment with different playing techniques.
The game will have many classes with which to experiment with different playing techniquesIn this sense, the journalist has found similarities with other games that completely move away from the copy to find your own path on Avowed. For example, the character classes will be complemented with a combat style very typical of The Elder Scrolls with the possibility of use two-handed weapons. But this will not leave out the magic lovers, since the essence of Pillars of Eternity is also collected with natural spells like rays that will fry all the enemies that stand in our way.
The world of Avowed will be much more colorful than that of The Elder ScrollsIn addition, all attacks, both magical and physical, will affect beyond the character and the NPCs, since Avowed will have a destructible stage with which we will be able to experiment through multiple weapons and movements, such as powerful kicks or shield blows, and “mountains of spells in a gigantic list” that will give the opportunity to forge a sorcerer to suit us.
Continuing with the inspirations of The Elder Scrolls, Avowed will take advantage of the classic RPG components of that franchise to incorporate them into a much more colorful world. What will leave pictures like “caves of luminescent mushrooms, green forests flooded with gigantic flora and huge temples illuminated by the sun with depths and tombs infested with skeletons”. In other words, a game that will delight every RPG lover.
Avowed could be one of Obsidian’s most powerful releasesHowever, in terms of storylines and world size, Corden cannot make more than speculate. Based on his feelings about the game, he is not clear if he will follow the pattern of The Elder Scrolls with the open worlds or if he will prefer a system like the one used in The Outer Worlds, which connects areas. Despite this, the journalist thinks that the game’s narrative will have a fundamental paper, since “it is one of the strongest points of the study”.
Although Avowed looks great with just these words, Corden assures that the game will improve its visual quality, since he has played a version that does not yet have dances of lights or some textures, so does not show images of his experience to avoid speculation. However, it is very possible that we are facing one of the most powerful releases of Obsidian.
Finally, the journalist follows in the wake of the developer and relieves the community by confirming that soon we will know more about the game. In this sense, Corden thinks that Obsidian could give more information about its title. at the next Game Awards, of which we already know the official date, although it is also likely that we do not know anything about the adventure until E3 2022. Be that as it may, Avowed promises to be an ideal experience for all passionate players of the RPG genre and, although we still do not know the release date of Avowed, we already know that it will be released on PC and Xbox Series to take advantage of the power of both platforms.
