You are the envoy of Aedyr, a distant land, sent to investigate rumors of a spreading plague throughout the Living Lands - an island full of mysteries and secrets, danger and adventure, and choices and consequences, and untamed wilderness. You discover a personal connection to the Living Lands and an ancient secret that threatens to destroy everything. Can you save this unknown frontier and your soul from the forces threatening to tear them asunder?

Avowed, the new Obsidian RPG, affirms its next-gen ambitions

Announced at the Game Awards 2020, the enigmatic action-RPG from Obsidian Entertainment expected on PC and Xbox Series X | S would have changed engines.

According to the LinkedIn page of Aaron Dubois, artistic director of visual effects for the studio, the development of this new game, which we still know little about, would be done around the Unreal Engine 5 .

The magic engine?

Last month, Epic Games proudly announced that Obsidian was among the studios working on Unreal Engine 5 for their upcoming projects.

However, there was no indication that Avowed would be affected. The Outer Worlds 2 , expected much later, seemed a more suitable candidate. It wasn't until the LinkedIn page of Aaron Dubois, working on Avowed , spilled the beans.

According to a status report last October , the game is in a playable alpha stage and development is well advanced. This report also indicated that Avowed used an improved version of the engine of The Outer Worlds first of the name.

The transition to Unreal Engine 5, however, should bring Obsidian's ambitions for its new first-person RPG set in the Eora universe ( Pillars of Eternity ) to life in a more compelling way.

While the release window for Avowed is still nebulous, given the state of the project, it could be that a release next year is possible. We should thus see Avowed again after two years of absence during the Xbox Games Showcase expected next month.
