Whether or not you’re a fan of role-playing games, there’s no denying that Spiderweb Software knows how to create quality titles in that genre and come fall 2013, Avadon 2: The Corruption will be joining their extensive catalogue on Windows, Mac, and iPad. Let’s take a closer look at this second part of the Avadon trilogy.
Just like in Avadon: The Black Fortress from 2011, you’ll be working as an agent of Avadon, tasked with the defence of your homeland as civil war and conspiracies threaten to tear it all apart. Even with unlimited resources at your disposal and pretty much control over the law, it won’t be an easy task; oh and in case there wasn’t enough trouble already, there’s also a brand new threat lurking in the shadows, just waiting to strike.
What will you do? Will you fight your enemies? Or will you join them and end Avadon’s power once and for all? The choice is yours!
Personally, I’d join my enemies and take Avadon down once and for all, forge my own destiny and so on. Does that sound crazy? Maybe, but the developer does claim that Avadon 2 will be a huge adventure with lots of replay value, and I’m willing to bet at least one of its different endings will feature the destruction of Avadon. Freedom! But there’ll be none of that until after you’ve ploughed through legions of monsters, cleared out dungeon after dungeon and – should you feel like it – help those in need. On the combat side of things, a turn-based system will be used, allowing for plenty of strategy and less-than-stressful encounters.
While Avadon 2 may look somewhat dated visually, based on experience with previous Spiderweb Software releases, chances are the gameplay will more than make up for what the graphics lack. With five different classes to play as, a crafting system, plenty of quests and a ton of lore for those who enjoy reading about the game world in great detail, there’ll be plenty to do at least. Whether or not it’ll also be fun remains to be seen – fall is still far away, after all.
