Absolver

Absolver, an online combat RPG is set to release on consoles and PC in 2017. Developed by the independent developer Sloclap along with Devolver Digital, the game will feature a variety of martial arts combat styles, weapons, powers, and more.

Players are put behind the mask of a Prospect. As a Prospect, you have taken a sacred vow to join the Absolvers, an elite group of combatants who fight to maintain stability in the world. Players will wander the forsaken lands of the fallen Adal Empire and encounter other Prospects online. As they learn their place in the world, your character will eventually rise to become an Absolver. Throughout the journey, Prospects will learn new combat styles, attacks, and powers. They will also acquire better weapons. Battles among warriors feature real-time flow of dodges, attacks, counters and feints. All aspects of gameplay will be customizable, including the combat styles, weapons and individual attack sequences. Players will have the opportunity to enjoy PvE by building a team to fight in the dungeon mines of Adal, as well as PvP in dedicated combat areas throughout the game.

The online combat RPG will not include guns in their weapon arsenal. According to Pierre de Margerie, the creative lead at developer Sloclap,

“We think the world would be a much better place if there were no guns. Then we could finally focus on important things, like sword fighting and how to kill a man with one punch.”

Devolver Digital CFO’s, Fork Parker also provided a statement, describing their decision to take a martial arts track for the game.

“Our extensive, international focus groups illustrate that people want to be able to punch faceless, nameless strangers over the internet. Absolver is going to be your digital outlet for real-time, fluid beatdowns of those that stand against you.”

The game is scheduled for release sometime in 2017. They will be present at E3 and plan to debut gameplay June 13, 2016 at 5:00pm PT on twitch.tv.
