Skyrim in the world of Pillars of Eternity?
In the announcement trailer we get a first look at the gameplay. For example, it is possible to use a weapon and magic at the same time, making the game very reminiscent of Skyrim. Avowed is a big break in style in that respect with the previous Pillars of Eternity games, which used an isometric perspective.

Last year, that game received a spiritual successor in the form of The Outer Worlds. You can read our The Outer Worlds review on the site.
