Absolver is an upcoming online melee RPG from ex-Ubisoft team members

Publisher Devolver Digital has announced Absolver, an upcoming online melee RPG from the new studio Sloclap, formed by ex-Ubisoft team members. The game is due in 2017 for the PC. Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Here's is what players can expect from the game:

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.

More info on Absolver will be revealed in mid-June as part of E3 2016.

  • finally something new
  • This game looks pretty cool actually!
  • I like the idea, a couple of days ago I was thinking about how cool it would be to have something like this with the Killer Instinct characters
  • The phrase "melee RPG" sounds off to me. It seems to imply that RPGs are necessarily combat oriented, whereas by definition is not even a necessary element of the genre.
