Obsidian RPG Avowed a ‘loadout-based Skyrim’
New details have emerged about Obsidian Entertainment’s ambitious new RPG Avowed which is set in its own Pillars of Eternity universe, and it reportedly blends elements from The Outer Worlds.
Avowed increasingly appears to be Obsidian’s attempt at its own version of an Elder Scrolls-sized RPG adventure. Very little has been shown so far but we have confirmation two-handed combat is definitely in.
- Only pre-rendered CGI of Avowed shown so far
- Set in World of Eternity from Pillars of Eternity
- Gun-powdered weaponry might also feature
- Same engine as The Outer Worlds with upgrades
Pre-alpha: We’ll battle recognisable enemies from classic-RPG Pillars of Eternity and use the same spell system. This new information comes from Windows Central who watched pre-alpha footage of the game.
Colourful: It’s also reportedly “more loadout-based” than Bethesda's hugely popular Skyrim, and it’s also going for a more vibrant visual palette throughout along with destructible environments. Let's hope we see more of it at the Game Awards show in December.
