Just announced for PlayStation 4, Absolver seems like an interesting concept. Crafted by ex-Ubisoft developers formed under indie banner Sloclap, this is a beat-'em-up with a few twists. According to the studio, Absolver is "a kick-ass online action game, with visceral martial arts style combat [set] in a fantasy world, in which players meet each other seamlessly during their travels". We're not sure it's possible to fit any more buzz words into that sentence.
So from what we gather, you'll inhabit this virtual world alongside other players, who you'll be able to engage in melee combat. "A new story unfolds at each encounter: what are the other's intentions? Will we fight to the death or become allies, trading weapons and teaching each other new attacks?" the PlayStation Blog post reads.
Again, it sounds interesting, and the gameplay that's on show in the title's reveal trailer looks pretty promising. We'll apparently be seeing and hearing more about the game soon, so until we get bombarded with fresh media, let us know if this one's caught your eye in the comments section below.
Online game. Pass.
This looks cool!
Looks good..buuut its online only without a single player campaign?yeah I'll pass too.
Too bad it's online only...
Destiny is online only, Overwatch is online only... I think we need to give games a chance regardless of whether they're online only or single player only. All depends on the experience at hand, surely?
Well if they can have everyone online and avoid trolling by massively more powerful players than you, then i'm interested.
Interested to see how they deal with differing character levels.
@ShogunRok +1 Couldn't have said it better myself. Honestly people have to get over this oh it's Online only so I will pass. Games are going to be more and more online dependant as time goes on its just a fact. If people don't want online only game then I guess they should just stick with PS2 and older consoles.
@Tasuki " If people don't want online only game then I guess they should just stick with PS2 and older consoles."
That's absurd and a little extreme. Lots of amazing single player games: The Witcher, Uncharted 4, Fallout 4, etc.
I think online only games have a part in the ecosystem, but the gamers who prefer single player content will have plenty of great games in the future.
@ztpayne7 But dont you think it's absurd and extreme to dismiss a game like Overwatch, Destiny, and others like it cause its an online game?
Looks cool, but I cant imagine an online game of this being fun for more than a few hours.
@Tasuki I don't think the comments are on the same level. The equivalent would be someone saying that online games shouldn't exist. As my comment read, I think online only games should exist and will cater to certain kinds of gamers.
While I'm not so extreme as to never try a game because it is online only, I'll have to admit I much prefer story / single player games or local multiplayer. And with how many games I have in my backlog, the online only ones are towards the bottom of the list. I mean, I'm the type that even played Borderlands 2 solo. Just in the same vein, I think there are people who may like a game like uncharted 4, but in actuality they would rather go back and just play more overwatch, ffxiv, rocket league, or black ops 3 because they like that online community feeling.
