Immortals of Aveum —> out now —> PC, PS5, XBSX

Hoping to generate some buzz out side the upcoming games thread. This has got potential. I’m telling ya. If you’re a FPS fan this is a ton of fun.

got to say, i'm loving Immortals of Aveum. the controls are much more intuitive then i thought. switching magics is just like using a weapon wheel on Y button. not so complicated. figuring out which magic works best on certain enemies is fun. just a little thought involved, but it really is very easy to master all the spells and sigils and stuff. it certainly looks gorgeous. even with so many enemies on screen at once, i didn't notice any dip in speed. magnificent artistry to some of these places. now, i'm only a couple hours in, but so far loving it. a unique, fun, linear FPS. my cup of tea.

I'll grab it once I can get it for 40 or so. So many other discounted games I've grabbed recently and need to play.

I almost blind bought this but held off because reviews are all over the place. I can wait until this is on Game Pass.

For some reason I thought I remembered from the Direct that it was going to be on GP day 1... so it IS coming to GP?

I expect it to... it's distributed by EA.

Definitely a game I'll download and try out for five minutes when it does.

Figured out where I saw it... EA Play Pro Downloading!

This game is FUN. I don't know that I'll see it through the end as I suck at platforming but I'll see how far I make it. I'm an hour in and not even through the tutorial

Made it through the tutorial. This game is a ton of fun. Definitely wasn't expecting to like this one just because it's a platformer shooter. I'll see how far I can make it. Don't know how much time I can put towards it, but I got 5 more months of EA Play Pro.

Three or four months after that, it will come to Game Pass with regular EA Play.

I was wondering about that, because I'm thinking of not upping EA Play Pro when it expires in February (and I'm all in to Gamepass with 32 more months).

Yeah I'm out too much platforming. Same with Star Wars. I'm guessing platforming is a thing with EA games? Makes the decision to drop Pro easier.

I think it’s a perfect mix. Some FPS’s do it well. Some don’t.

I went back and was able to do the platform I was stuck on. This game is just too much fun. Too bad I discovered it one day before Starfield.

I've heard like almost nothing about this game. I would guess it was a huge bust but of course we never see accurate sales charts.

Figures, any game I like no one else does

I do wonder what happens to Ascendant Studios from here, as this is not a good debut, and I’d doubt if EA sponsorship would continue after this. It’s a bummer, but this was a very, very tough year to launch any original, lower key game in, given that we are in a season of non-stop hits. And your game has to be better than average to stand out in a market this intense, especially if you’re charging full AAA price.

It's a shame this game didn't go anywhere, it really is a ton of fun. I was trying to get through a statue and couldn't figure out how and looked it up and felt like a dummy
Spoiler:
when I realized all I had to do is manipulate the statue to move after I jumped on it. I just made it through the path.

That's what really sucks, though, the game is fantastic and a lot of fun.

it's been that way with several games up to now...all because all the Game News Sites...like Gamespot, IGN, Eurogame, Gameinfomer, PSU, etc...are covering either Starfield or Baldur's Gate 3...that's all you really see everywhere.....There's glowing reviews of ....Lie's of P ...but can't hardly find anything on it.....same with Lords of the Fallen and even A.C Mirage that's coming up, hardly anything on them...and even recent other games like Armor Core and Atlas Fallen, basically came and went....Granted the Playstation State of Play was late yesterday but be interesting if they give it some coverage with new Spiderman, Avatar and Helldivers II gameplay...there's a lot of good stuff out there...just not getting the coverage....

just discovered that the DualSense controller changes colors depending on which magic you're using. that's really cool.

Really. I was using red magic and then noticed my controller went red and thought it was out of juice even though I always keep it plugged in. Then I changed magic and color of controller followed suit. I thought that was neat.

No you were right. It’s a PS5 controller. It needed to be charged

I will say, there are a lot of weapons and special abilities at your disposal, but very hard to remember some of the button presses on important ones. And, this game uses every button.
