Absolver

Absolver, the May-announced online combat RPG from Slocap Productions, will launch first for Playstation 4 and then for PC in 2017, publisher Devolver Digital announced during the PlayStation Experience 2016 keynote. The PlayStation 4 version of the game will also feature exclusive content.

Here’s an overview, via Devolver Digital:

A recipient of several award nominations at this year’s flagship industry event, E3 2016, Absolver is an intense combat RPG featuring real-time flow of attacks, dodges, feints and counters, with all aspects of gameplay customizable, including combat styles, weapons and even individual attack sequences in the player’s Combat Deck.

Absolver puts players behind the mask of a Prospect, who has taken a sacred vow and chosen to join the Absolvers, an elite corps of combatants fighting to maintain stability in the world. Monitored by the Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire, players will wander these forsaken lands and encounter other Prospects online in order to learn their place in this world and eventually become Absolvers. Along the way, they will learn new combat styles and attacks, and acquire better weapons, powers and armor.

Build a team of warriors to fight side by side with you in the dungeon mines of Adal (PvE) or put your skill on display in dedicated combat arenas (PvP) scattered across the land.
