Don’t think of Avowed as Obsidian’s Skyrim but as a Fallout: New Vegas and Outer Worlds-style take on first-person fantasy, says the studio

You’ve gotta feel for Avowed, Obsidian’s upcoming first-person fantasy RPG. As soon as the studio started talking about it, people (including, ah, me) began to look for pigeonholes to slot it into. A quick shorthand that would let us call the game “Obsidian’s take on X”.

The easiest reference point, of course, is Skyrim (Starfield without guns), to which Avowed’s fantasy setting, first-person combat, and classless character system have all invited comparison. But the studio doesn’t think it’s the right comparison, telling PCGamesN that you’re better off thinking of Avowed as an Outer Worlds-like, or even—be still my heart—something like Fallout: New Vegas.
