9:35 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Spiderweb Software, makers of such award winning titles as the Avernum and Geneforge series, recently announced the upcoming release of a new chapter in the Avernum RPG saga. Avernum 4 will return players to the enormous underworld nation of Avernum in the first completely new game for the series in years. Players will once again rescue the shadowy lands from dire peril.
The game will feature a gigantic world filled with multitudes of characters to meet and hundreds of sidequests to explore. Spiderweb Software promises players weeks of entertainment in this latest addition to the series.Life in Avernum just became a lot more dangerous. All at once, everything has gone wrong. The savages and dark creatures of the lower tunnels, once beaten into submission, have returned. Gigantic beasts, shielded by powerful magic, have taken up residence in the cities, wandering and killing at random. And normally peaceful citizens have been afflicted by a strange, overwhelming paranoia, making even regular townsfolk unpredictable and dangerous.
Nobody knows why these disasters occur. But you, through good luck (or bad), have stumbled upon a clue. And thus, you become involved in a shadowy war and a deadly struggle, which will take you through strange lands, bandit cities, and the darkest depths of the underworld. Your mission: discover who has attacked your homeland, and stop them. Before everything falls apart.The Avernum titles leading up to Avernum 4 were recreations of the classic Exile series of gaming yesteryear, improving on the originals with new graphics and content. Scheduled for release in early 2006, Avernum 4 will sell for $25 or $32 with a hintbook. No prior experience with the series will be necessary to play.
