Obsidian Entertainment's Avowed Looks Like The Next Skyrim

It's hard to get an impression of a game when it is only briefly shown, but sometimes, a little is all that's needed. The Elder Scrolls 6, for example, showed a landscape and has fueled speculation for months. Microsoft pulled a similar trick with the new Fable at the Xbox Series X event, but if there's one thing the event was not short on, it's fantasy RPGs. Obsidian Entertainment, renown for its work on Fallout New Vegas, Kotor 2, South Park: The Stick of Truth, and far more, announced its next epic fanasy RPG with Avowed.

Damn, Obsidian just went up a few branches on the respect tree. That game looks like it is made specifically for me. I don't like the Pillars games, I'm just not made for tactical RPGs. I find that a crying shame because the depth in those games is pretty groundbreaking. So a hack & slashy & firebally game in that extremely rich universe... yum yum yum.

I've actually just started playing the Outer Worlds, another game that fits me like a glove. Unlike Fallout 4, it's the perfect blend of real time combat while still maintaining enough RPG elements.

More good news...

Rumor: Avowed Much Larger Than Skyrim, More Details Leak

A new leak claims to have early details about Obsidian's upcoming RPG Avowed, teasing that the game will be even bigger than Skyrim.



A major leak for Avowed, the upcoming fantasy RPG from Obsidian Entertainment, just dropped Sunday morning. Considering Avowed was only just revealed this past week during the Xbox Games Showcase with a cinematic trailer, any official details are highly valued. But this rumored information goes far beyond just general details, even claiming that Avowed is "much much larger than Skyrim," which is quite the claim for a game still years away from launching.

There are about 20 specific rumors of interest in the supposed leak, which comes from ResetEra user sponger. The first five deal with the world of Avowed. It states Avowed is a "fully open world, much much larger than Skyrim." However, it qualifies this by saying it's a different type of larger in that it's "denser and "more contrasted." This world is Eora, which is the Pillars of Eternity setting, and in this world there will be a real-time weather system, as well as "world-reactivity" which they describe as lighting, next-gen AI systems, and physics.

I'm pretty much thinking the same thing, don't count on it.

I am not sure they will not have much of option if they want to compete with ES#6.

Modding and SexLab is a must, right?

They're not competing with ES6, ES6 is still years away. Their timing is impeccable.
