Microsoft studio Obsidian Entertainment just unveiled its upcoming first-person RPG, dubbed Avowed.

In the trailer, we see impressive expanses filled with skeletal armies, and hints at Elder Scrolls-like first-person fantasy combat, with a spell in one hand and a weapon in the other.

Avowed is set in an "expansive" world dubbed Eora, and looked like a completely new IP. Microsoft studios lead Matt Booty noted that Avowed is built from the ground up for Xbox Series X hardware.

We'll drop more details in here as soon as we have them.
