Avernum 5 Officially Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Spiderweb Software has officially announced the upcoming release of Avernum 5, the latest in the long running Exile/Avernum RPG series. Spiderweb has opened a new website for the game and is also offering a collection of screenshots.

Avernum 5 takes a new direction with the story, allowing players to play as a group of soldiers from the above ground world of the Empire who have descended into Avernum's depths to search for the murderer of their Empress. The game will feature hundreds of quests, an epic storyline, unique encounters, and a variety of spells and items to discover.

More about Avernum 5 from Jeff Vogel:

Since many of the neat new graphics aren't done (we have a pretty cool selection of new creatures coming up), these shots mostly have older stuff. This will, of course, change as we get closer to release.

The game world is about 40% done. I've been putting a lot of effort into having lots of funky scripted encounters, so it's been exhausting, but I've very happy with how it's coming together. Balancing it will be a bear, though.

Still shooting for the Mac version being out just before Thanksgiving. I'll have to put in some weekends, but having a product out for Black Friday is worth it.
The Mac version is planned for a Winter 2007 release. Click over to the site below to learn more about the game.
