The most prominent new element in Absolver: Downfall is the new Downfall game mode that takes players in solo or cooperative runs down the Adalian Mines, on a quest to battle Arcell and his corrupted Prospects.
Greetings dear Prospects, the team here at Sloclap is super excited to present Absolver to the PlayStation community on August 29, and we wanted to dive into one of the game’s biggest feature ahead of launch – online cooperative and competitive play. The new ‘Friends & Foes’ video feature in this post illustrates some of the online experiences you can expect in Absolver and we wanted to provide some more insight into what it all means and how these different experiences will affect your time in the ruins of the fallen Adal Empire.
Greetings, dear Prospects. Our online melee action game Absolver is creeping close to launch and the team at Sloclap wanted to share the latest feature of the game with the PlayStation community. Additionally, Absolver is now available for preorder at PlayStation Store ahead of its August 29 launch date and players can get 10% off the base price as well as the exclusive Labyrinth Prospect Mask and Uring Priest Gear Set.
In our last PlayStation Blog post we detailed how you will be able to customize your character’s approach to combat – from combat style and moves to stances and how those moves chain together. This Combat Deck is the most important feature in Absolver and we think it is what will set the game apart from other fighting and action games. The feeling of approaching an opponent and not knowing what moves and attacks they have compiled in their Combat Deck brings a great deal of tension to these battles. Alongside the ability to change stances on the fly, this level of customization makes every fight feel unique and thrilling in its own way. Now we have a new variable to introduce… weapons and powers!
Absolver is an online action game in which players explore the ruins of the fallen city of Raslan, which was destroyed by a massive earthquake centuries ago.
As they explore Raslan, players will meet other Prospects like them — volunteers who have vowed to become Absolvers — and build relationships with each other. The road to Absolution is a hard one, and to prove their worth to those that are watching, Prospects will have to hone their combat skills.
Sloclap is an indie studio you’ve probably never heard of, since it was created just over a year ago in Paris and has been working under the radar until today: we’re announcing our first game, Absolver, with this first reveal trailer – we truly hope you enjoy it!
