Obsidian Entertainment has announced its newest RPG, Avowed. The dark fantasy epic looks to capture what makes Obsidian games so special, and is coming to the Xbox Series X.
Fans of the best Fallout game (New Vegas) and Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II will be grateful that the studio behind the classics is turning its hand to a new genre.
Of course, Obsidian also announced DLC for last year's Outer Wilds. But for now, we're focussing on the brand new title.

There is no official news on a release date at the moment, but it seems unlikely to be soon.
Industry insider Sponger has revealed Avowed has a planned release date of late 2022 to early 2023.
However, as with any insider information, this is subject to change and could be incorrect.
We imagine Avowed still has a substantial amount of time in development before it's release, but we'll keep you updated with any news on that front.
We expect Avowed to cost around £60, but it will also be available for free on Xbox Game Pass.
Game Pass costs £10 a month, but you can find a bunch of new subscriber deals to get it even cheaper.
Check out the trailer here:
Avowed will be available on Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Xbox Game Pass - and you'll be able to play on PC using the latter.
What To Expect
Obsidian is a studio known for its worldbuilding and unique RPGs. Expect a great story, probably an open world, and some fairly decent graphics.
Avowed could well be the next cult classic RPG from the studio, embracing fantasy realms to bring us castles, magic, and the undead.
As of yet, we've only seen the trailer and crucially no gameplay, but keep your eyes peeled for more news from Obsidian and Avowed.
