During Microsoft’s Xbox Games Showcase earlier today, first-party studio Obsidian Entertainment announced a new game titled Avowed, and a lot more stuff! We got new DLC reveals, a smaller-scale game and more! Read on for the details.
Watch the official announce trailer for Avowed, Obsidian Entertainment’s next epic, first-person RPG set in the fantasy world of Eora.
In addition to that, the studio announced the first expansion for Outer Worlds titled “Peril on Gorgon.” Out this September 9 for $14.99, check out the trailer below along with info straight from Microsoft.
The Outer Worlds: Peril on Gorgon. The first expansion to arrive for The Outer Worlds, Peril on Gorgon expands the reaches of the Halcyon Colony. The DLC brings its employees more of what they love in the darkly humorous universe with a brand-new pulp-noir tinged adventure that takes players to the Gorgon Asteroid to investigate the mysterious origin of Adrena-Time. During your shift, you’ll find new Board approved weapons, armor, flaws, and the same freedom* to approach your problems that made the original game so rewarding. But that’s not all! The level cap is also increasing to level 33 to offer more ways to make your character your own with new perks and skills.
Obsidian also announced “Grounded,” a title where you’re the size of an ant!This game is out on July 28 for $29.99.
Next, we have Grounded, releasing on July 28. Shrunk down to the size of an ant, you and up to 4 of your friends will explore the familiar, yet oddly foreign environment of a backyard while trying not to get eaten. Everything that seemed to be tiny is now larger than life, and you will have to gather, build, and survive if you want to make it out of the backyard alive. Prepare to take on the yard in Grounded releasing on Xbox Game Preview, Xbox Game Pass, and Steam Early Access on July 28for $29.99.
That’s a lot of stuff cooking for the Xbox One and Xbox Series X! We’re excited to see more of Avowed, and given Obsidian’s pedigree, RPG nuts should keep an eye for it.
