Posted May 12, 2017

The game will put you in the role of a Prospect who eventually joins the Absolvers, a group of fighters tasked to "maintain stability in the world".

All three styles from Absolver's real-time combat system are showcased in the trailer, which players will need to master as they wander the lands of Adal alone, with friends or spar with a mentor to become the ultimate warrior.

As you can see, the trailer focuses on the various details and nuance of combat, providing a look at each unique fighting style and abilities.

The overview trailer does a fine job of highlighting how the game is played and what the mechanics, visuals and gameplay are like. Today, however, we have confirmation of the release date from Sloclap.

Regardless of what you think about Absolver, I at least have to give props to the developers for trying something new when it comes to combat. It's up to you to master all of your combos in each stance in order to chain them and mix them up like a pro.

Players can choose attacks and stances to create a fighting style and its fully customizable, allowing players to change fighting stances on the fly. Players can choose to learn new techniques from trainers or stick with a technique they like and hone it, unlocking new abilities with each round of practice.
