Absolver Is Almost Here: What To Expect
Fighting games and more fighting games, they've been on a roll. From For Honor to Injustice then around to Tekken 7, the industry continues to embrace this classic format. Sloclap, the developer of the new title Absolver wanted to do something a bit different. Absolver is a break from the norm and it looks as though there will be plenty of content to enjoy. Things have been relatively quiet in regard to media coverage but it's quickly picking up as the release date approaches.
Sloclap and Insight
Sloclap is a new studio made up of former Ubisoft Paris developers. Absolver will be their first title and they’re already making waves with their “online combat RPG”.
“We think the world would be a much better place if there were no guns,” creative lead Pierre de Margerie. He continues, “Then we could finally focus on important things, like sword fighting and how to kill a man with one punch.” http://bit.ly/2ryPeWG
Players will have the option of choosing between three different classes or ‘styles’. The first is the Forsaken style which has a concentration on parrying. The Kahlt Method’s special ability allows them to absorb damage. Finally, Windfall style is a master in avoiding attacks. Each one of the three different styles uses their special ability to set up special combinations to destroy their enemy.
Though these are the three main styles, according to the trailer there are others to be found as players advance through the game. Beyond just being able to choose different styles, there is even more customization in regard to specific moves for each variation.
It may seem like just another fighting game but Absolver does something a little bit different that could mean big things for the genre as a whole. Dubbed a multiplayer combat RPG, players can group up to fight their way through dungeons. This could add an interesting element to the game, making it more than just another fighter.
Expected to drop on PS4 and PC on August 29th, it won’t be long until gamers get their hands on this unique fighter. The first time the world got a hint of Absolver was E3 last year and people have been patiently waiting to see what this game has to offer. With little coverage, the trailer gives a decent look at the different combat styles and mechanics.
Come take a step into the world of Absolver and learn about the Prospects journey as they hone their combat skills.
