According to Jez Corden, senior editor for Windows Central, the game is currently in preproduction, but is approaching a working alpha with core gameplay mechanics.
“I think there is a good chance of seeing Avowed up and running by E3 2022, given the quality of the content I saw, which could have been months back then.”Corden said.
Avowed events unfold in the world of Pillars of Eternity and, according to Corden’s informants, some spells, enemies, firearms and enchantments will migrate to the new game from the role-playing series.
As for the gameplay, then Avowed supposedly will have several character classes, a combat system with “Mountain of spells” and dual wielding (like in Skyrim), destructible environments, and a brighter visual style compared to Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls.
Corden added that Avowed is based on the improved engine of The Outer Worlds and is positioned as a variation on The Elder Scrolls from Obsidian Entertainment.
Avowed is being created for PC, Xbox Series X and S. There is no official release date for the game yet. According to an insider sponger, the project will offer a responsive open world, dynamic weather and an advanced character editor.
