From Press Release:
The video focuses on character creation, taking players through the details of the prospects and character set up – and how and why your clothes and equipment matter in Absolver. What you wear affects how you play.
Clothes can denote where you are from, and each item you equip has a specific weight and purpose. There are thousands of possible combinations: Players will have to choose what’s right for their combat style but be careful: You can lose items and equipment to a victor in battle or drop them in combat as well.
Recipient of several E3 2016 award nominations, Absolver is an intense online combat game featuring deep fighting mechanics and a 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. It’s up to you to decide how you want to become an Absolver.
Absolver is launching August 29th on PC and PS4, and preorders are available now at the website below for 10 percent off.
