The folks at Spiderweb Software have confirmed that the popular Mac and PC title, Avadon 2: The Corruption, is set to reach the App Store next month, on Feb. 28. Spiderweb’s new game will be optimized for the iPad only, and we’re guessing it’ll carry a price tag of $9.99 once available.
If you’re not familiar with Spiderweb, the developer has a track record for releasing impressive role-playing games (RPGs) which place particular emphasis on storyline, dialogue, and gameplay strategy - as any decent RPG should. Though its titles reach OS X and Windows first, Spiderweb has nevertheless worked towards porting several of its games to the iPad, and these have included Avernum 6 HD (back in 2012), Avernum: Escape from the Pit HD (in 2011), and Avadon: The Black Fortress HD - the first title in Spiderweb’s Avadon series - which also launched in 2011.
TouchArcade explains that Spiderweb’s idea has long been to create a trilogy out of its Avadon games, and since Avadon 2: The Corruption reached desktop platforms in October, we’ve been expecting the release of an iPad port since then.
Back in December, Spiderweb called for iPad beta testers for Avadon 2: The Corruption’s iOS port, and now TouchArcade notes that a release date for the application has been confirmed. Feb. 28, the publication explains, is the day we’ll be able explore Avadon 2: The Corruption on our iPads. But what can we expect from the sequel? Spiderweb has all the details online:
