XBOX players, get ready for an exciting year ahead! At the recent Developer_Direct show, we were treated to in-depth previews of five new games coming to Xbox Series X|S, PC, Game Pass, and the cloud. These highly anticipated titles, set to release later in 2024, were showcased by development teams from Xbox, Bethesda, and a third-party partner. We were given an inside look into the creation of each game, with new details and tantalizing hints about what’s in store.
Let’s start with Avowed, the upcoming fantasy action RPG from Obsidian. Game Director Carrie Patel took us on a deep dive into the gameplay, revealing its dynamic combat, intricate decision-making system, and a world described as “Colorful, vibrant, strange.” Obsidian’s signature style of creating games with deep themes and player choice remains at the forefront of Avowed. Not only will your narrative decisions have consequences that ripple throughout the game, but combat itself offers a range of choices. Gameplay Director Gabe Paramo discussed the diverse arsenal at your disposal, including melee weapons, ranged guns and bows, and even magic-based wands that can be dual-wielded. The flexibility of combat allows you to adapt your loadout on the fly, ensuring you can approach each enemy encounter in a way that suits your playstyle.
Art Director Matt Hansen shed light on the Living Lands, a mysterious island composed of diverse regions that offer visually stunning backdrops and captivating settings to explore. From barren deserts to lush forests, from blighted wastelands to volcanic biomes, each region holds its own secrets waiting to be discovered.
But that’s not all! On Monday, January 22, don’t miss the exclusive interview with some of Obsidian’s developers on the Xbox Podcast. They will provide even more insights into the gameplay reveal of Avowed. Mark your calendars and get ready to embark on your own unique journey through this immersive world when Avowed launches this fall for Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Cloud. And the best part? It will be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. For further details, visit the Avowed website.
