Avadon 2: The Corruption


Recommended Posts

Lets look at the new screenshots.

I think this is the second floor of 'new' Avadon, we can see the ? in the minimap, hinting that it's a stairway up or down.

I think this could be somewhere in the Kva, but there aren't any cacti in view, so some corrupted or dry woodland.

New potential Hand party members, with stronger personalities!

This got me really excited, it looks like Eye Leyara, or an older Natalie, that would mean Shima, Sevilin and Jenell died, and YOU disappear in the proper Spiderweb fashion.

Seeing the Razordisk and Lockpick icons, I'm sure this is a revamped Shadowwalker skill tree, on a female, too! MALE SORCERESS FTW.

I don't see anything interesting here, but I'd like to say.. I liked the Avadon 1 style of character portraits (at the top left) better.

 

What do you guys think?

Could also just be a random sorceress, or even just a blonde-haired random. I don't think you can draw any conclusions from it...

I think we're supposed to be looking at the Snare Turret skill here, but yeah, male sorceresses will be cool.

I think it's Natalie because of the arm-sling, it was hinted that she would never fully recover, it's all speculation though.

Why would an older Nathalie mean the death of other three hands?

Yeah, the previous ones seemed better.

At first glance, it looked like Nathalie looking over the bodies of the other three Hand followers, now I'm not sure, because if Redbeard is alive, then that means either the original party did not succeed in killing him (The endgame fight is pretty difficult) or sided and stayed loyal, or they split up.

 

What do you think happened? (As the canon) It's always fun to speculate :)

Those could be any three dead people. In fact, if they were dead Hands (or Eyes or anyone, really) I'd guess they'd give them a more respectable burial than just hauling them off in a cart. Those corpses are probably from the attackers.

I think Redbead is overseeing the rebuilding of Avadon after the attack that took place at the end of game 1. It looks to me like he is telling Sevelin what he thinks of the repairs to the castle while Nathalie looks on. Since Heart Miranda is no longer around, Nathalie has probably become Redbeard's new chief assistant.

It will be interesting to see what role the companion characters from Avadon play in...(umm, how do I abbreviate Avadon 2? A2C? Ava2? AD2?)...the next game. The only analogous situation in Jeff's games so far is the transition of Alwan and Greta from quasi-developed companions to major NPCs from G3 to G4.

It will be very interesting to meet Miranda again, I'm also curious to see if Redbeard gets a new wife. :)

 

First - When we head to the Taewon Empire I'll bet Miranda will show up in some capacity.

 

Second - I'll be surprised if our litttle, yet ambitious, Nathalie doesn't worm her way right into Redbeard's confidence and replace Miranda.

 

Third - For those who have worked on the Mac beta in the past - How long after the announcement of a game does the beta normally begin?

Jeff doesn't have a fixed schedule. Basically depending upon how much of the game engine is new the testing starts 4 to 5 months before game release.

Well, we know that Avadon II is going to be a bigger game than Avadon i was. So, if we assume the release occurs in late October or so and that the Mac beta takes 5 months, that would mean a start date in early June. And, the PC and iPad versions will probably start beta testing in early August. More or less - of course.

Because many bugs are fixed in the mac beta test, windows testers only have to worry about porting bugs, not other bugs or, perhaps more significantly, balance.

That was the case, yes. But now that Jeff is planning to release Avadon 2 for Mac and PC at the same time, the PC beta testers will have to worry about regular bugs and combat balance as well as any porting bugs.

 

Dikiyoba.
