Avadon 2 (opens in new tab) , which chronology fans will be pleased to hear is the sequel to Spiderweb Software's Quite Good 2011 RPG Avadon, has been given a release date at last. The isometric adventure will be available on Steam, direct from the website, and from a few other places on October 30th, or All Hallows Eve Eve as it's presumably known by someone, perhaps Trevor Eve. It shouldn't be madly different to the original game, but then that's not the Spiderweb way, with story tending to take precedence in their gradually expanding series of fantasy epics.

Spiderweb haven't shown much of Avadon over the last few months - theirs is a different, and welcome approach to the Ubisoft method of bombarding you with trailers - so here's a video from a while ago.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
