We're still trying to get a read on the first-person sorcerer simulator Immortals of Aveum, and it's proving resistant to our scrying. The gameplay looks promising enough, but the fairly generic fantasy setting still gives a little pause (we got enough of that for the year in the mediocre Forspoken, thank you very much).

However, production values are through the roof, as evidenced by the cinematic cutscene that debuted over the weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. In it, we see protagonist Jak getting dragged over the coals by his boss Kirkan, the leader of the Immortals, sorcerous special forces soldiers serving on the front lines of the Everwar. What's an Everwar, you ask? It sound's cool and evocative; don't overthink it. But we did legitimately laugh out loud at the 0:55 mark, so credit where it's due.

How are you feeling about Immortals of Aveum? Will you be checking it out next month, on 22nd August, or will the arrayed or imminent forces of Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon, Baldur's Gate 3, and some Starfield game we keep hearing about prove too powerful to overcome?
