Devolver Digital has just announced a new game they are publishing that is being developed by Slocap, and it is described as an online combat RPG called Absolver. The game’s developer includes staff who previously worked on games like Ghost Recon and Watch Dogs. The game is currently slated for a 2017 release on PC and consoles.
Devolver describes the game as the following:
“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.”
“Battles between warriors are 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. 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.”
There will be hands-on demos of the game at E3 2016, with gameplay being set to debut on Twitch June 13th at 5:00PM Pacific. A reveal trailer for the game was also released, which you can check out below.
