Absolver screenshot of a close quarters battle

Absolver is a bit of a weird game. Its an online combat RPG with a heavy focus on fluid melee battles, though more alike a fighting game than any standard RPG. However, instead of using predefined skills like in a fighting game, your character in Absolver can be customized to a massive extent with new combos, attacks, abilities, and even ways of blocking enemy attack. As I said, its a bit of weird game, but its definitely an interesting one!

In order to show how exactly the dueling system works the developers have recently posted a video detailing the three beginning combat styles. As you might expect, each one has a lot of interesting things going for it, as well as plenty of room for future improvements. But rather than just watch me babble, watch the video instead:

If this looks like something you might enjoy, you'll be glad to hear that you won't have to wait for too long as Absolver is set to arrive on August 29th for the PC and PlayStation 4. To learn more about Absolver, or just check out some other videos, you should head over to the official website. As for me, allow me to send you off with some rather colorful images:
