Obsidian’s Avowed launches in fall 2024

Obsidian revealed more information about its upcoming game, Avowed, at today’s Xbox Developer Direct. In particular, it revealed more about the gameplay, story and location. It also gave us a release window: Avowed launches in fall 2024 for PC, Xbox Series X/S and Game Pass.

The gameplay trailer was a mix of combat and story interactions, as well as glimpses of the game world, called The Living Lands. Avowed follows the main character’s quest to stop a plague on The Living Lands and discovering a secret along the way. Obsidian showed several moments of combat gameplay, which it says is a combination of magic, melee attacks and ranged weaponry, and players can quickly swap out their loadouts.

In addition to combat, the trailer also showed how the player character interacts with other characters. It follows a sidequest and how the player character can resolve it, including how the game offers “morally gray, nuanced” dialogue options and narrative choices. The world is divided up into several regions the player can explore, each with its own look and design.

Obsidian said that it would reveal more information about the game’s release window soon.
