Avowed release date: A green-skinned bald character in a waistcoat

When is the Avowed release date? Avowed is set to be Obsidian’s next big RPG and excitement for it is building uncontrollably. The fantasy RPG set in the world of Eora takes place in the same universe as the Pillars of Eternity franchise.

With Obsidian’s track record, it should be no surprise that many are expecting the upcoming title to land on the best Xbox Series X games list. And it’s an even bigger win for those with a Game Pass subscription, as they will be able to play Avowed, alongside other Xbox Game Pass games, on day one when it finally launches. But when can you expect to enter the world of Eora?

Avowed release date window

The Avowed release date will arrive in 2024, which was confirmed in a gameplay trailer shown during the 2023 Xbox Games Showcase. It will release on Xbox Series X|S and PC.

While we don’t have a concrete date, we do now at least know that Avowed will drop in 2024. Having heard so little about the game up until this window was confirmed, many feared we wouldn’t get the game until 2025.

A leak from insider ‘eXtas1s‘ on YouTube says that Obsidian is aiming for a Q2 2024 release date, so if this is accurate, we can expect to see it in the spring at some point.

Avowed trailers

Avowed’s first trailer was show at the Xbox showcase in July 2020, when it was officially revealed. This CGI trailer gave us a brief glimpse into the world of Eora as seen in Avowed, as well as what to expect from the atmosphere of the game.

It’s second trailer, which features lots of great gameplay, was shown at the 2023 Xbox Showcase. You can check that out below.

Avowed gameplay details

Avowed’s melee and magic-focused first-person combat will definitely appeal to fans of Obsidians work. We see plenty of elemental powers being used against hordes of skeletal enemies and big wild beasts.

We know this is an RPG, but we haven’t yet seen any of the dialogue or character-building features we come to expect in Obsidian’s past games.

That covers everything we know about Obsidian’s RPG ahead of the Avowed release date. For now, you can take a look at the best Xbox RPG games to get your roleplaying kick before we hear more about the upcoming title.
