Intriguing beat-'em-up Absolver has finally grappled a confirmed PlayStation 4 release date: the 29th August. We've had our eye on the game for some time - we even interviewed developer SloClap earlier in the year - and we've always thought that the title's gameplay premise sounded pretty interesting.

Basically, Absolver is a bit like Journey, only other players that you stumble across might want to kill you. Heck, you might even want to kill them. Melee combat is the main draw here, with a supposedly in-depth system giving way to highly customisble fighting styles. You can get a better look at how combat works in the new trailer that we've embedded above.
