Immortals of Aveum story and setting
Immortals of Aveum is set within the world Aveum, which itself is split into five realms. The realms, which are Oremen, Lucium, K’ley, Rasharn, and Kalthus, are each divided by a deep chasm called The Wound. These five kingdoms have each been affected by the Everwar, a battle that has raged on for millennia. Because of the destruction, only Lucium and Rasharn are the only two superpowers left, with directly opposing views of how magic should be handled and distributed by those in power.
You play Jak, a reluctant hero that is thrust into the Everwar after acquiring new powers. You’ll use these powers to push back the forces of darkness, and hopefully end the war that has been decimating the five realms for all this time. So far, it’s unclear whether or not you will have much control of the story, or if you are firmly on the side of Lucium in this battle. It does seem like you will have control over both red and blue magic, so perhaps there’s potential to learn techniques from all sides during the story. Time will tell.
Immortals of Aveum gameplay
Immortals of Aveum is essentially a first-person shooter, but instead of guns and bullets, you’re using magic and spells to do damage. You’ll have access to 25 spells, split into blue, red, and green magic.
Blue magic deals with the physical manipulation of matter, allowing you to fire precise bolts, spontaneously form shields and defensive walls or manipulate gravity. Red magic spells can rend, and harness energy in extreme ways, manipulating it to unleash destructive beams. Green magic deals with growth, death, and transition. Spells manipulate enemies and objects by altering them or their surroundings. Bind objects in place, misdirect with illusions, or dispel an enemy’s ability to cast or heal.
There are also 80 talents, which add modifiers to your spells. There’s magical gear to find, upgrade and craft as well, which will presumably boost your offensive and defensive capabilities.
As you progress through Immortals of Aveum, you’ll visit 12 biomes, hosting three bustling hubs where you can chat with locals. There are large stretches of wilderness too, which can be explored for gear and lore.
