Absolver from Devolver Digital and developer Sloclap is a new stylish melee combat game coming to PC and PlayStation 4 on August 29. Featuring great art and animation players will get to roam the plains of Adal in search of combat challenges both alone and with other players. A new trailer ahead of the launch details some of the modes you can expect, whilst hinting at post-launch content.
The core of Absolver’s gameplay is its deep fighting mechanics and online combat. Prospects will enter the plains of Adal alone and encounter both AI-controlled opponents and live players through Absolver’s shared online experience structure. Players will roam the world as their own independent ‘server’ as the game seamlessly introduces other Prospects into their game experience. Once players encounter one another they will have a choice to engage in friendly sparring, more aggressive PvP combat, or cooperative PvE play with up to three players at once. Through online cooperative play each Prospect will be able to learn new moves from one another, progress on their path to Absolution, and gain experience points that can be spent on one of six attributes to improve their skills.
In addition to the above a 3 versus 3 mode, ranked matches, and a spectator mode will be coming soon after launch. The combat looks very cool, and seems to be based on concept of competitive sparring with points awarded for direct hits. Add in a number of different Combat Styles and Combat Decks, and this could be the martial arts based fighter you've been looking for.
We'll be diving into the game prior to release so stay tuned to AusGamers for more Absolver.
