Absolver Brings Martial Arts-Focused Action Online

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting, online.


Absolver by Slocap and Devolver Digital aims to bring fluid martial arts fighting into the world of Action RPGs. You'll be able to build your own custom combinations of strikes, parries, and feints with a card-based "combat deck" system.

So far the animations look great, and I'm hoping for something a little like The Mark of the Kri with a little Jade Empire thrown on for good measure. The main attraction to Absolver seems to be the development of one's own personal martial art styles through the combat decks. It looks to add a new twist to the standard action role-playing formula, and if the trailer shown at PlayStation Experience 2016 is any indicator, it might be a good one.

You can get your hands on Absolver for PlayStation 4 (with exclusive content) and Microsoft Windows sometime in 2017.
