Updated January 1, 2019: Today, the developer announced that Absolver should hit Xbox One soon because it passed Microsoft's certification process. Hopefully it'll release in the coming weeks.
A few years ago, Devolver Digital announced Absolver for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. While the game launched on PC and PlayStation 4, it seemed like the Xbox One version had been shelved. We haven't heard much about the port since then.
That change today because Absolver's Twitter account confirmed an Xbox One version. The edition is being developed and tested at this time. No further details were provided like a release window or Xbox One X enhancements.
Hopefully we'll get an Xbox One version soon because Absolver is quite a popular game. The title focuses on online melee action and requires skill to succeed more than anything else.
According to Sloclap, Absolver puts players behind the mask of a "Prospect", who has taken a sacred vow and chosen to join the Absolvers, an elite group 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 earn 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 intense and take place in real time. Players must use various attacks, dodges, feints and counters to take out their opponents. Lastly, all aspects of gameplay are customizable, including combat styles, weapons, and even individual attack sequences.
