Avowed will be a very different game then Elder Scrolls
When we saw the Avowed reveal trailer the first person view of a character holding a sword and weilding magic made me think a lot of Elder Scrolls games. If you took off the name some might say this would be a proper Elder Scrolls 6 game trailer.
But according to Microsoft’s head of games Phil Spencer, he assured that Avowed would be a very different game. Here is the quote
I think the games are very different, so I would maybe struggle to say ‘This is our version of this’, knowing what Feargus and the team are going to do. But when I think about our lineup, and I think about that more core fantasy RPG setting, I think Avowed is going to be an awesome entrance.
Fable has never been that, it’s always been a little more lighthearted and a little more British I think I could say, and I think Playground will keep it there. Elder Scrolls VI is further out and when that comes out I think it’s going to be incredible. Avowed will be a core fantasy-based RPG, but there’s going to be some distinct differences from what Elder Scrolls has done traditionally. This one obviously takes place in the Pillars world.
Obsidian is such a fantastic studio. I think Avowed will be fantastic when it comes out and I want to give them the time and the resources to build the most amazing game they’ve ever built.— Phil Spencer (Microsoft)
This sounds like Avowed will take place in the Pillars of Eternity universe. Which is a very cool universe to have a new game pop up. It should very interesting to see how this game shapes up. I have always loved Obsidian games and I really hope they do this RPG justice.
