Carrie Patel welcomed viewers and revealed that Avowed is set within the Pillars of Eternity universe. Today’s footage focused on combat and showed players customizable loadouts in what Obsidian calls dynamic combat and promises Avowed will continue Obsidian’s style of games with “deep themes and player choice at the forefront.”

Joining Patel was Gameplay Director Gabe Paramo, revealing combat is impactful, and weaponry is varied, which features melee weapons, ranged guns, bows, and wands (yes, you can dual-wield wands). Also, depending on which enemies you encounter, you can change loadouts via swappable loads.

The Living Lands is described as a mysterious island filled with varying regions and diverse backdrops. Obsidian is known for including many secrets within the world, so they encourage players to explore and find those secrets hidden in the deserts, forests, wastes, volcanoes and more.
