When the first showed us that teaser trailer of Absolver, I knew they might have something awesome with this game and this E3 2016 gameplay demonstration back it up…
During the E3 2016 livestream, the developers behind Absolver came on stage to give us more information regarding the upcoming game. In case you are completely lost and have no idea what this game is all about, basically:
Absolver puts players 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.
Monitored by the Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire, players will wander these forsaken lands and encounter other Prospects online in order to learn their place in this world and eventually become Absolvers.
Along the way, they will learn new combat styles and attacks, and acquire better weapons, powers and armor. Battles between warriors are an intense real-time flow of attacks, dodges, feints and counters, with all aspects of gameplay customizable, including combat styles, weapons and even individual attack sequences in the player’s Combat Deck.
Build a team of warriors to fight side by side with you in the dungeon mines of Adal (PvE) or put your skill on display in dedicated combat arenas (PvP) scattered across the land.
I’m actually loving everything these guys are saying about this game. Hopefully the game live up to their statements. I was actually surprised by how complex the fighting will be in the game. From dodging and parry to choosing your stances and combine various fighting style to create your own unique character, it all sounds awesome.
Now the one thing that I’m a bit concerned with is the micro-transaction in the game. We both know they are going to add it to the game. I don’t like micro-transaction or the business practice of it but as long as all the item are purely cosmetics and not pay-to-win then should be fine.
Here is the video to enlighten you on Absolvers.
