Spiderweb Software continues to expand their presence on Steam with the release of Avernum: Great Trials Trilogy. The $11.99 bundle includes the last three releases in the Avernum series (4, 5, and 6). The three are within the same world as their predecessors but do not require prior experience, with the fourth entry taking place long after the third. Avernum 4 pits players against new monsters and assassins, against a re-emergent assassin threat in 5, and against a new foe, a race of barbarous lizards, in 6.
Role-playing fans looking to take the plunge will score an extra 20% off at the moment, during a release-week promo sale.
Avernum is a world underground. It is a nation of people living in an enormous warren of tunnels and caverns, far below the surface of the world. Once a prison colony for rebels and thugs, it is now a wild frontier, full of adventurous souls looking for wealth, fame, and magical power. Avernum’s sole link to the surface world: a single magical portal, delicate and difficult to maintain.
