Avowed receives a fresh trailer, yet the official release date remains unknown.

Obsidian Entertainment showcased a fresh trailer for Avowed during the recent Xbox Games Showcase 2024, leaving fans eager for more details about the official launch date. The highly anticipated first-person action RPG designed for PC and Xbox Series S|X is currently set for a release sometime in the broad 2024 timeframe. Despite the lack of a confirmed release date, viewers were treated to an exciting preview of the game in the latest trailer.

The initial glimpse of Avowed was presented back in 2020 at the Showcase event, featuring a CGI teaser trailer that drew comparisons to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with its dark aesthetic and emphasis on wielding spells and weapons simultaneously. While the game’s original concept seemed to mirror Skyrim, a significant overhaul in 2021 impacted its development timeline, leading to the current uncertainty surrounding its release.

Carrie Patel, the newly appointed Game Director, redirected Avowed towards Obsidian’s core strengths, focusing on rich character narratives and decision-driven gameplay dynamics. Unlike Skyrim’s vast open world, Avowed opts for a more contained setting similar in scale to Obsidian’s past projects like Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic 2 and The Outer Worlds, offering a playtime of around 30 to 40 hours.

Following the recent updates, an Obsidian developer reassured fans on a forum that while Avowed may not match Skyrim in sheer scope, it still promises a more expansive and immersive experience compared to their earlier titles. This clarification was likely aimed at managing expectations surrounding the game’s size and scale.

In a separate showcase earlier this year, Obsidian showcased gameplay footage during the Xbox Developer Direct event, highlighting the game’s versatile combat system that allows seamless transitions between weapon types and spells through customizable loadouts. A quest example demonstrated the significance of player choices in shaping the storyline and outcomes within the game.

Set in the established world of Eora from the Pillars of Eternity series, Avowed unfolds on the isolated island of the Living Lands. Players step into the role of an Aedyr envoy tasked with investigating a mysterious plague, uncovering personal ties to the Living Lands and confronting an ancient menace that threatens to upend everything within the game’s lore.
