Absolver Gets Combative New Trailer

Your fights, your way


Developer Sloclap and publisher Devolver Digital have teamed up today in order to release a new video for upcoming game Absolver.

In Absolver, players will take take control of a Prospect as they join the Absolvers — an elite combat group that fights to maintain the stability of the world. Each Prospect chooses their own combat style and creates their very own customized Combat Deck as they participate in intense real-time combat. The latest Absolver trailer gives players an in-depth look at the following three combat styles:

  • Kahlt Method – Absorb hits without being stunned or pushed back, and regain lost health with every successful counter attack.
  • Forsaken – Balanced and powerful, Prospects can parry enemy attacks and briefly stun opponents.
  • Windfall – Greater dexterity and will, Prospects can avoid enemy attacks leaving them open to a powerful counter attack.


Also detailed is the Combat Deck. The Combat Deck is the player’s attack inventory, and contains four different stances. Each stance allows players to use different attacks, allowing for greater combat flexibility. Players are able to customize their Combat Deck freely, and can switch stances as they please during combat.

Absolver releases on August 29 on PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam. Will you be joining the Absolvers? Let us know in the comments below!
