EA has announced that Immortals of Aveum will now be released on Tuesday, August 22 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via the EA App, Steam, and the Epic Games Store. The single-player, first-person magic shooter was originally supposed to be released on July 20, but Ascendant, the relatively nascent studio behind Immortals of Aveum, explained that the game needed to be delayed so its “full vision” could be realized. Immortals of Aveum marks Ascendant Studios’ very first project, having been founded not too long ago in 2018.

From an Ascendant Studios post:

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
