Read full 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.

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.
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 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.
Absolver is a MMO, fighting and role-playing game Which was made by a group of former developers of Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon. The game put players in the role of the protagonist characters called Prospect, who are members of the distinguished group called Absolvers. These people fight each other to maintain stability in the world. As you progress in the game, you will be faced with other fighters like yourself , learn new ways to fight, get weapons, armor, and equipment, and ultimately you have to create a team of fighters to engage in each other's struggle. In general, there are four fighting styles in the game, which, of course, players choose their own choices and what weapons they will use and how their light and heavy attacks will depend on their own definition. You can even choose to be friends with the people you see on the way or be an enemy that your choices will eventually produce results that are effective in the storyline and the storyline you are going through.
