You can’t turn around in this genre these days without Shroud of the Avatar leaping out at you with another free trial. And so it is for October, as the curious set can scout out the game for free (albeit with limitations) through the 25th.
If you happen to be out and about in Shroud this month, you might want to consider entering into the “Nightmares of New Britannia” Halloween contest. The team is urging players to come up with thematically striking costumes or house decorations for the season, and the best of these will be richly rewarded.
At least this game’s trial program will be fully tested by the time Shroud of the Avatar actually launches! Which, as a reminder, won’t be this year for sure.
