The highly anticipated fantasy first-person shooter, Immortals of Aveum, published by EA under its Originals brand, will now be hitting the shelves a bit later than initially announced. Originally highlighted at the Summer Game Fest earlier this month, the release of Ascendant Studios’ new game has been pushed back to August 22nd, a month later than its original release date.
Bret Robbins, the game director, and the Ascendant team released a blog post stating, “To fully realize our vision, we require a few additional weeks, setting our new launch date to Tuesday, August 22nd. This extension provides us with the opportunity to add the finishing touches, optimize across all platforms, and ensure a successful launch. We believe it’s crucial, both for ourselves and our players, to get this right.”
Ascendant Studios, featuring several alumni from EA and Telltale, embarked on their self-funded venture five years ago. The innovative concept of Immortals of Aveum abandons traditional guns, offering players a variety of magical spells instead.
Being one of the first major titles developed in Unreal Engine 5 (specifically UE 5.1), the game’s visuals have received praise for their impressiveness. However, during a hands-on preview at Summer Game Fest, a bug was encountered by Jessica Conditt, Senior Editor at BuyTechBlog, when a door failed to open, temporarily breaking the game. Here’s hoping the additional time will allow Ascendant Studios to iron out this and any other lingering issues.
