Immortals of Aveum, from Ascendant Studios, has been delayed to August 22, 2023. Although Ascendant is an independent studio, Immortals of Aveum, published by Electronic Arts, has been getting a bit of attention since more information about it debuted in April. Being billed as a magical FPS set in a fantasy world, Immortals of Aveum is one of the first major titles to be developed in Unreal Engine 5.
The game stars actors Gina Torres and Darren Barnet and reception from the early previews is a bit mixed. Combat seems fun and entertaining enough, but the dialogue and story leaves a bit to be desired. We’ll know more when Immortals of Aveum finally launches on August 22, instead of July 20.
Hey Battle mages,
Your reactions to Immortals of Aveum™ over the past few weeks has been incredibly inspiring – from our trailer at the PlayStation Showcase, and the recent hands-on previews, to the latest gameplay reveal, and being named one of the most anticipated games from Summer Game Fest. It’s been amazing.
As you know, this is our first game as a self-funded independent studio. We set out five years ago to ambitiously make an original Magic FPS in a new fantasy world. Along the way, we worked through a pandemic, built a new team, developed on Unreal Engine 5.1 and pushed the boundaries of what we thought was possible. Now, the finish line is in sight.
The recent feedback to the game proves to us what we already felt: that Immortals of Aveum is something special. In order to realize our full vision, we are going to take a few extra weeks, making our new launch date Tuesday, August 22nd. This will give us time to further polish the game, finish optimizing all platforms, and deliver a strong launch. We owe it to ourselves and to you to get this right.
Stay tuned for more info about the game in the coming weeks, and thank you for taking part in this journey with us!– Bret and the Ascendant Team
