Obsidian Entertainment debuted some new details and gameplay for Avowed to kick off the Xbox Developer_Direct ’24. Players take on the role of the Envoy of the Aedyr Empire, who ventures to the Living Lands to investigate a magic plague. There’s plenty to discover, including a secret related to the player’s character.

As an action RPG, combat is central to the gameplay. Players can use pistols, swords, shields and wands, but it’s more than hacking and slashing. There are customizable loadouts to switch during combat, and you can even dual-wield wands. Freezing an enemy with a wand and shattering them with an offhand melee weapon is a strong combo.

One of the side quests is also showcased, with the player discovering some fallen soldiers and investigating a Private who fled. If they believe the Private’s story, the quest ends peacefully, but confronting him could lead to a fight. Returning to town will show the consequences of these actions.

Avowed is launching this Fall for Xbox Series X/S and PC. There will be more details in the coming months, so stay tuned.
