Avadon 2: The Corruption Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Leviathyn has posted a new preview of Spiderweb Software's upcoming sequel, Avadon 2: The Corruption. The indie role-playing adventure will return players to the Black Fortress where they will have to decide whether to aid the beleaguered Avadon or assist those attempting to destroy it.

The difficulty is still overall a little easy, at least for the beginning portion of the game. There are more opportunities to participate in quests meant for a higher level though, giving you access to several difficult optional battles. On a more general note, the fights themselves are wholly more interesting. The battles include a range of new mechanics forcing you to employ different strategies such as focusing down lackeys to prevent special moves or risking releasing monsters to fight for your side. The talent system is also mostly the same as before, but there are less requirements to reach the end-tier skills. This means that you can focus on a specific side of the talent tree without having to fill out the entire bottom half.

The fact that you can now choose your gender will definitely be an important feature for some, and there are a full set of character art and portraits for both versions of each class. Speaking of class features, there is also the inclusion of the new Tinkermage class which works out somewhat like a cross between a shadowwalker and a turret-crafter? You get to place down a variety of different turrets that provide heavy AoE damage as well as some status effects, making him a strong contender for the damage-dealer of your team. As the turrets generally shoot in cones and have a limited range, it also adds to the strategy of a battle as you have to be aware of your placement.

Avadon 2: The Corruption is currently scheduled for a Fall 2013 release. Click over to the links below to view the preview and learn more.
