Devolver Digital Announces Absolver

This game might be awesome. Would love a “fighting” game in 3rd person with pvp arenas.

Devolver Digital has teamed up with Paris-based developer Sloclap to bring you Absolver, an online combat RPG coming to PC and consoles.

Absolver is the first game from Sloclap, an independent studio founded in 2015 by developers who worked together at Ubisoft on Watch Dogs and the Ghost Recon series. It puts players in the shoes of a ‘Prospect’ who joins an “elite corps of combatants” called Absolvers to maintain stability in the world. Players will wander through Absolver’s world and pick up new combat styles, attacks, powers and weaponry, while fighting other warriors in “an intense 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 will allow you to fight alongside other players in its PvE mode set in the “dungeon mines of Adal”, or fight against them in dedicated combat arenas in PvP.

Absolver will make its debut at this year’s E3.

“The studio is excited to debut our first game with Devolver Digital and get it into the hands of gamers and media at E3; Absolver is the result of our combined experiences in game development and we believe that our team has created something special together,” said creative lead at Sloclap Pierre de Margerie. “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.”
