Obsidian announce new fantasy CRPG, AVOWED

Obsidian Entertainment have announced their first big game since they were bought by Microsoft last year.

Avowed is a first-person, 3D CRPG set in the world of Eora, the setting which previously appeared in their two Pillars of Eternity games. Some commentators have noted that it appears that Avowed may be Obsidian's Elder Scrolls in the same way that The Outer Worlds was their Fallout. Avowed will be released on X-Box Series X and PC.

Avowed is some way off, but in the meantime The Outer Worlds is getting a full expansion, Peril on Gorgon, which will be released pleasingly imminently in September.

Obsidian are having a fecund period at the moment. They are also working on Grounded, an open-world survival game influenced by Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and also have a historical CRPG in the earliest stages of development from New Vegas lead developer Josh Sawyer.
