Devolver Digital and Sloclap have released a trailer for their online melee combat game Absolver, which will be hitting PlayStation 4 and PC August 29.
The action RPG game will see players placed in the fallen Adal Empire, 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. Under control of the guides, the new rulers of the empire, players must prove their worth to their elite corps of Absolvers. Players will wander the forsaken lands and encounter other Prospects in order to learn their place in the world and eventually become Absolvers.
Absolver’s newest trailer gives players a detailed look at unique fighting methods, combat styles and abilities. Players will choose one of three combat styles at the beginning of their journey, which will come with special abilities and improve special character attributes.
1. Kahlt Method
Absorb hits without being stunned or pushed back, and regain lost health with every successful counter attack.
Balanced and powerful, prospects can parry enemy attacks and briefly stun opponents.
Greater dexterity and will, prospects can avoid enemy attacks leaving them open to a powerful counter attack.
In addition to giving players a look at what is to come in terms of combat styles, the new trailer outlines the Combat Deck – an inventory of attacks players can use while fighting. The attacks are divided between four different stances. In combat, players are able to unlock new attacks and learn new ways of attack by taking on a mentor.
“The combat deck is fully customizable, allowing one to define their way of fighting and become unpredictable.”
