Pre-Alpha Avowed Screenshot Leaked Online

The leaked pre-alpha screenshot for Microsoft’s new game, Avowed, has been online since last year. It’s not high quality and doesn’t show much in terms of gameplay, but it’s surely a way to contradict the silence by Obsidian.

This has already been discussed over on ResetEra, the famous gaming forum where similar discussions are on the rise frequently.

Avowed will be an open-world game, providing massive exploration components and huge focus on world reactivity. The in-game weather is planned to be revolutionary and in real-time, bolstering its exploration factors to a whole new level.

Avowed is an upcoming action-RPG video game developed by Obsidian, the developer behind Fallout: New Vegas and other notorious video game titles proven to be some of the most enjoyable and entertaining titles. Well, Avowed is estimated to be a lot bigger than Skyrim if the leak posted on ResetEra turns out to be true.

  • fully open world, much much larger than Skyrim (very differently “larger”, more proper word would be “denser” and “more contrasted” at the same time)
  • primarily set in the The Living Lands region of Eora (not sure if it’ll go like that as explicit later on, but that was starting point)
  • big focus on world-reactivity, lighting and next-gen AI systems and physics (special focus on physics with magic systems – have no clue what would that mean)
  • realtime whether system (don’t have full details but fog is very important as realtime element, rivers will have specific micro physics systems regarding this)
  • very advanced character creation tool (didn’t get more info)
  • mod support (for now PC is/will be very dominant as creation tool, but I’ll be playable fully on Xbox)
  • very large number of fractions but very different approach than with Skyrim
  • you’ll be able to have companions (different than Outer Worlds)
  • storyset: fight against incoming threat of tyranny (independent from previous stories)
  • game has bosses planned and some of them are very very large
  • Gods will have special say in the game
  • great focus on iconic landmarks, statues and buildings
  • two large cities planned with many smaller ones with strong focus on contrasting wild-areas, rivers, mountains and desolated areas (yes, you’ll be able to swim)
  • fully respecting POE creatures lore with new additions
  • dynamic presentation of dialogue
  • for now idea is to keep “you can kill everyone in the game” option
  • around 100 people are on the project for 2y (smaller number for 7m of preproduction), in total 2y 7m
  • full production is already a thing
  • team will still grow
  • target date: late 2022/early 2023

A huge fan of puzzlers. Would love to experience the world and takedown on every single and upcoming game title. In the free time love to sing, follow recent game rumors and try to decrypt them in the best possible way.
