Absolver offers multiplayer melee action, now in open beta form

Ever fancy yourself the wanderer type, fated to roam the lands while righting wrongs and becoming a legend in your own right? A new multiplayer fighter, Absolver, purports to offer the opportunity to play out this fantasy.

Absolver puts players in the role of Prospects, masked fighters who learn how to become better fighters as they journey across the land. There’s both PvE and PvP encounters to be had that attempt to create spontaneous narratives. Interested parties are invited to sign up for the upcoming open beta test.

The game sounds like it puts great emphasis on an involved combat system: “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.”

Discover more about the game on its website or through the trailer and developer walkthrough below!

I am really looking forward to this! The combat really looks like it has some Tekken or DOA influences.

Consoles only?

The graphics (backdrops and characters) remind me somewhat of Saga of Ryzom. It even has the masks! ;)

Ok but no grips of any kind ? Throwing them at the ground standing on top and pummeling them. Grabbing them under your arm and punching or elbowing them , throwing them around.

Even Blade And soul has that ….

Kinda terrible , only hits and kicks .

Finally a proper melee combo system in the spirit of fighting games and not those deluted versions in other MMOs/lobby games so far!

Open beta? Link says closed

Was confused by this as well. Whether the devs are calling this open or closed, imo it’s open if everyone can play it. If you have to be selected, it’s a closed test, period. Changing the labels like that simply makes me have less confidence that the devs know what they’re doing when it comes to testing.

The newest dev blog post (after 10 months of silence) referring to the registration link, does say “Open Beta form” though…

It’s been a while!
