Obsidian showed off Avowed in a 30-minute gameplay demo

The fantasy role-playing game Avowed, developed by Obsidian Entertainment, includes a 30-minute teaser trailer, with 25 minutes of gameplay footage. This video shows how to play in the Eora universe, which was made by the same people who made Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity, and The Outer Worlds.

Among the most intriguing is the option to switch between first- and third-person perspectives. The show also featured dialogue between other non-playable characters. Game director Carrie Patel detailed the NPCs’ reactions to the player character and the environment’s transformation from night to day in Avowed.

The battle style and the overall gameplay of Avowed are determined by a set of skills that players will have access to. They showcased two distinct methods of evading challenges: brawling and sneaking. In certain cases, engaging in battle will enrage key characters, preventing them from accessing specific dialogue options or rewards. On the other hand, if a player is skilled enough, they can sneak up on NPCs and obtain what they came for. Several primary traits define the character:

  • Strength – increases combat damage and weight
  • Constitution – increases health, resistance to poison and bleeding
  • Agility – increases attack and speed of actions
  • Perception – Increases critical strike chance and maximum range
  • Intelligence – increases essence (mana equivalent) and elemental resistance
  • Determination – Increases the stamina and recharge speed of Second Wind, a mechanic that
  • restores some health when an enemy hit would be fatal

Warrior, Ranger, Wizard, and Godlike skill trees are all accessible, in addition to a companion ability tree. We don’t see the God Tree in action, but it revolves around special traits that the characters possess.

Part of the reason the game feels sluggish is because of how it is presented and how fully immersed the viewer is in the Avowed atmosphere. The battle system is much enhanced and equipment greatly enhances it when compared to what the developers showcased in January. The player can rest, talk to their friends, and level up their gear at their camp.
