Obsidians first project exclusively for Microsoft after being purchased is finally revealed. Welcome, to the dark world of Avowed. Their next epic is a first-person RPG set in the fantasy world of Eora. The game looks like a mix of Skyrim and Pillars of Eternity which, to be frank, is a fantastic mix.

The trailer shows of a dark, fantasy world filled with mountainous landscapes, fire-arrows, valleys, skeleton soldiers and underground cities: like I said, dark fantasy. This is a project that has been very much anticipated since Obsidian’s acquisition by Microsoft.
