Game description

In the ruins of the fallen Adal Empire, you awaken with a mysterious mask on your face, and faint recollections of an esoteric ceremony. Freeing you from hunger, thirst, and even death, the mask is the creation of the Guides, the rulers of these lands, who have placed you here to determine whether you are worthy of becoming part of the elite corps of Absolvers. As you wander these forsaken lands, encountering other Prospects like you, you will learn new combat styles, acquire weapons, gear and armor, and build a team of warriors with whom to fight side by side in Arenas of combat.

Fluid Real-Time Combat: Position yourself in one of four tactical stances during real-time battles and execute devastating attacks, dodges, and parries. Movement becomes your weapon as you engage in solo duels or intense three-on-three melees battles.

Customizable Style and Flow: Players will define their character’s playstyle by picking a combat style, a weapon of choice, and arranging attacks in their Combat Deck to design their unique and personal attack flow. 

Online Multiplayer Action and Narrative: Prospects and Absolvers will seamlessly encounter others in the world, generating unique stories that emerge through player interaction and choices. These moments are filled with tension as intentions to battle, trade, or befriend are never clear: trust is always a leap of faith. Encounters will have lasting consequences and transform into meaningful relationships as you make friends or enemies and find mentors or disciples. 

PvP and PvE: Explore a rich and dynamic world including dedicated PvP battle arenas where champions will receive spoils of victory and progress in the ranks of the Absolvers, and PvE areas in which players cooperatively battle to retrieve rare loot and equipment from the ruins of Adal.

Enemies always have the power to challenge you!


While Absolver's main gameplay is its combat, the game also has a number of role-playing elements, which are well-designed. Over time, by defeating more enemies, your character level rises, and with any level upgrade, you can upgrade your character's abilities in areas such as power, health, energy, and one or two others. In the Absolver, everything sounds both modest and acceptable, and even though we do not hear great music or special sounds, the whole game is in good condition as well. if you are a fan of fighting games, Absolver will be a great entertainment experience, and especially a combat system that makes it hard to keep up with the game. Currently, there are not too many users to play, and their servers are private, which makes it difficult to find a true match or rival in the game. However, if you are successful in experiencing gaming with real gamers, you'll experience even more fun with it and your abilities will be more challenging. Absolver offers the same sense of action as great combat games, and on the other hand, thanks to things like the possibility of personalizing martial arts, it becomes something more than just a fighting game. Of course, we should not ignore the problems but some of them may overcome over time and releasing updates.

a great game with a great future


that I can say to absolve, a game I did not know existed charm me in a couple of seconds to try it, it is true that I do not have it but I often go to a friend's house to play it I play hours and hours, without rest I can say that you have some mistakes, like every new game but I hope that the company fixes them and it is hard to improve and improve this great game, I was really surprised that it is not common like the other massively multiplayer games, this is different you play with me get closer to your action face to face with the enemy this game is special and I change my way of seeing the massive multiplayer single shot, shooting and shooting.

So Much Potential!


Absolver is fun and beautiful game. It has the potential to be so much more. The fluid combat and the combat deck system leave room for some of the most immersive and customizable melee combat of any game. As a multiplayer game it has many shining qualities. Starting a school to share your combat style and deck with others is one such feature. The 1 on 1 Combat Trials is yet another, allowing you to hone your skills in combat. Being able to cooperate in the "story" is also a fun feature. The art direction is simple, yet beautiful. What Absolver is not is a complete game. There is little to no direction given, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but will leave you wandering around searching for what's next. There is little to no story for what could be an incredible world with an amazing tale to tell. If you choose to play solo the combat very quickly becomes overwhelming as the combat system is not designed to make 3 or 4 against 1 combat fun, or even possible, and happens quite a bit. There are many tweaks that need to be done. Countless rendering issues on PS4 (I can't speak for PC) and also some server issues have hindered my gameplay on more than one occasion. Without more content I'm not sure Absolver will stand the test of time, offering very little after you've completed the "story." It is, however, very easy to lose yourself in the Combat Trials for hours on end, either crafting your own style or finding other's whose schools you'd want to join for a chance use their combat decks. All in all Absolver is one of those games that is fun, very enjoyable, and worth getting simply for the potential of what could possibly be to come in future updates. With a few tweaks and some features I would up the rating without hesitation.

We could have a gem here.


Absolver have potential to be the next best thing to Battlegrounds, frankly speaking, I wasn't even interested in this title but after I saw first real gameplay I was immediately bought by its charm. I really like the multiplayer aspect of the game where you can cooperate but also fight with other random players. I have so much potential. Give it a go!

I've been waiting for this game & it did not disappoint


I cannot put into words how much I love this game. I've been waiting for a game like this for so many years and I've been anxiously waiting to try this game since I first heard about it. This game is perfect for people who love customization and cinematic kung fu fights. The flow of combat is similar to dark souls, or Bloodborne, but taken to a much higher level of speed and utility, thanks to the many many moves in the game. You are free to, and I highly encourage players to, create and experiment with tons of move combinations to create a playstyle you are fully comfortable with. Every hit feels great and every fight tends to have at least one memorable, cinematic, or hairy moment, and the fact that you have no idea how your opponent will fight when you first meet them makes each player a completely different experience. MAJOR WARNING: This is a fighting game, completely. Potential buyers need to keep this fact in mind. There is not a lot more to this game than its combat. There is a relatively small PVE element to this game, that is excellent for learning the basics and collecting moves or exploring with your friends. The biggest issue I've seen people have with this game is they went into it expecting a deep RPG and were very disappointed. This game is NOT an RPG. So if you are looking for one of the best fighting games ever made, then pick this up and have tons of fun. But if you grow tired easily of just fighting then this probably isn't the game for you.
