Obsidian Leisure published their upcoming RPG Avowed previous this Summer season, and the Skyrim comparisons right away got here pouring in. Obsidian took a stab at any other Bethesda franchise prior to now with Fallout: New Vegas, and it seems like they’re doing the similar – unofficially – with Avowed.
Admittedly, we do not know a lot concerning the upcoming RPG rather then the prior to now published divulge trailer, however its mechanical similarity to Skyrim is uncanny. First-person point of view apart, the dual-wielding showmanship seems like a prettier model of the Elder Scrolls name that simply helps to keep popping again up.
For the ones acquainted with Obsidian’s Pillars of Eternity, Avowed is about inside of the similar global of Eora. This units up Avowed to have a surprisingly branching narrative out of doors of acquainted struggle. That is a type of video games I will be able to’t wait to peer extra of, as a result of I completely beloved Pillars of Eternity and not wish to go away that global. With the ability to discover that universe in a extra non-public method with this first-person journey appears like a dream come true.
I am additionally hoping this recreation gifts extra of a problem. Up to I love Skyrim, it all the time felt like a watered-down Morrowind and Oblivion to me. I would like the struggle again, and no more hand-holding. If anyone can do it, it is Obsidian.
