Releasing Immortals of Aveum on August 22
Immortals of Aveum, a fantasy first-person magic shooter, has been postponed from its previously scheduled July 20 release date to August 22 by publisher Electronic Arts and developer Ascendant Studios. It will be accessible on PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Epic Games Store through Steam.
Bret Robbins, the creator of Ascendant Studios, provided the following statement regarding the delay:
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 first-person shooter 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 22. 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!
