Obsidian says combat in Avowed will be good, actually, following criticism of battles shown in last month’s game overview trailer

Obsidian recently showed off a sizeable chunk of Avowed, its upcoming first-person fantasy RPG. As you’d expect from the developers behind Pillars of Eternity, Avowed looks like a colourful, characterful affair. As we’ve also come to expect from Obsidian, it currently looks a little bit wonky. In particular, the combat depicted in the video drew criticism from the community, with complaints that fights lacked a sense of dynamism and impact.

As reported by IGN, game director Carrie Patel has now responded to these criticisms. Speaking on the Dropped Frames podcast, Patel explained that the footage shown in the video is from an older build of the game. “We’re getting to show more and more, but all of that is while the game is still in progress,” Patel said. “One of the heartening things has been seeing fans call out some of the things we are actively working on, like the sense of hitting impacts as you’re attacking enemies.”
