Come round to mine for a fight in Absolver’s Downfall update

Hey, what are y-- get out of my house. No, I meant the mine, where the miners work. Not my house. Get off my armchair, stop eating my -- oh, okay, one fight, but then you’ve really got to go. This free update in Absolver won’t news itself. The skinny fighting game has just added new kicks and Bruce Lee punches and armour and powers,…

Absolver goes into the mines for some nice new shoes this month

Oh my, are you really wearing THAT to your big fight? You need a new scarf, mate. And those scruffy elbow pads will simply not do. Lucky for you, fashionable fighting game (f)Absolver is getting its free expansion in a couple of weeks, now with a proper release date. It’s coming out September 25, say developers Sloclap in a post on the PlayStation blog. This…

PSA: Absolver gets a free weekend

Hiiii-YAH. That was me kicking you in the nose. If you want revenge on behalf of your face, come and fight me in Absolver, the martial arts slap ‘em up. It’s got a free weekend on Steam now and its crumbling world is worth wandering through if you like the following things: Halloween masks, fashionable scarves, statues, crystals, stones arranged in a nice cairn, pretending…

Absolver gets new mode and fighting style in September

Dust off your fashionable frog mask, fabsolvers. Martial arts biff-em-up Absolver is getting a new dungeon-diving mode and a fifth fighting style modeled after Bruce Lee's twitchy fists and kicky feet. We knew this free expansion was on the way but now we know it's due out some day in September. And there are other details about what you'll be punching in the new ‘Downfall'…

Absolver’s next free update channels the great Bruce Lee

Absolver, much like its cast of masked pugilists, is a fighter. Sloclap's stylish online brawler-RPG was plagued with server and balance issues through its first few months of life, but the studio believed in it, and haven't given up. For a while, the studio have been working on a major new update centred around a PvE mode featuring new environments and enemies, buffed up with…

Feature: The first rule of fight club is...bow to your opponent

The Joy Of Absolver’s social fight clubs

My career in Street Fighter was a painfully short-lived experience. For a long time, I’d been trying to find a fighting game to really get into and to help me understand a genre I’d always been quietly interested in but entirely apart from. After being gifted Ultra Street Fighter 4 back in 2014, I was quickly hooked on the technical mastery and quick action -…

Absolver dons its Halloween mask in prestigious update

Absolver, the martial arts fighting game that you're not very good at, now has a ‘prestige’ system that lets high-level players redistribute their skill points. Its latest update also brings Halloween masks, new cloaks, a means of obtaining more loot for post-level 60 players, and a way to turn duplicate pieces of gear into salvage, letting you sew up the holes in your natty old…

Absolver patch whacks ‘spammers’ and adds masks

Skinny weirdos in masks have been beating me up all month in martial arts biff-em-up Absolver [official site]. They’re called Absolvers because they grant absolution to my face with an endless barrage of kicks and slaps. Perhaps, with this latest update, I can finally treat an opponent to a sin-cleansing uppercut of my own. Patch 1.06 is mainly a bug-fixing effort, but it also disempowers…

Absolver man expands on plans for fighting fans

Pow! Whack! Absolve! The martial arts biffing game Absolver [official site] is my hot cup of videogames at the moment. But like its slap-happy characters, it’s a bit on the skinny side. Once you’ve completed the story, there’s little remaining for the PvP-averse. And even online fighters might find themselves at a loss after mastering all the moves. So I asked creators Sloclap what’s in…

Absolver slaps on another patch but the lag remains

The martial arts brawler Absolver [official site] is a beautiful arena for skinny people who are both very polite and incredulously angry. It’s a great bruiser but isn’t without serious flaws. The sometimes-insufferable lag, for one thing, is killing the 1v1 dueling mode for many. A small patch has recently been added, bringing cross-region support and some “improvements to server connection”, say developers Sloclap, with…

Absolver’s most insulting move is a slap to the face

Martial arts fighting game Absolver [official site] is keeping me and many others happy with its fluid recreation of both fisticuffs and feeticuffs. But the move that has the brawling community most excited isn’t a whip-fast spinning kick or a sharp elbow to the top of the head – it’s a simple, shame-inducing slap to the face. Now, the most disrespectful thing you could do…

Absolver review

Our review has now been updated with post-release impressions. Read them below! I stumbled into Raslan like a newborn foal, aimless and on wobbly legs. Absolver [official site] and its labyrinthine city are not gentle with Prospects, the masked warriors who make up the game's players and AI-controlled enemies, but I assume that ritualistic combat trials aren’t typically easy-going affairs. Regardless, for the last week…

Feature: ALIEN PUNCH CHAT

Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talks Destiny 2, Absolver and XCOM 2: War of the Chosen

Hark, it's the sweet vocal vibrations of the humble RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. The lads (lads lads) are back from the bright lights of Gamescom and ready to chat hard about the games they saw. But Pip is only giving us a maximum of three words about each one. Madness. Never mind, we can talk more verbosely about the alien-shooting of the Destiny…

Absolver will add more modes and moves after launch

I was already 'jazzed', 'stoked', and 'ziffed' for the launch of open-world fighting game Absolver [official site] later this month, and now the weeks beyond that are sounding good too. New fighting styles and moves will arrive in free content updates after launch, developers Sloclap and publishers Devolver Digital announced yesterday, as well as features like a 3v3 mode and spectating. In a game where…

Absolver shows off drunken boxing style

The beautiful art of drunken boxing is the fourth fighting style confirmed for Absolver [official site], the fine-looking online combat game from Sloclap and Devolver Digital. Drunken boxing is one of my favourite styles to see in kung fu movies, punchmen rolling and staggering as their momentum swings into unexpected hits, and I'm certainly excited to build my own drunken boxing combos within Absolver's custom…

Multiplayer meleefest Absolver punching out August 29

If you too want to grow up to be, be an Absolver and punch faces in online multiplayer melee action, make a note: Sloclap's Absolver [official site] will launch on August 29th. That's the news from publishers Devolver Digital, who have also whipped together a trailer explaining how Absolver's biffing and learned custom fighting styles work. It looks smashing. Adam called it one of his…

Absolver’s multiplayer melee combat looks ace

When our Adam played Absolver [official site] last year, he declared the online melee murderfest "one of E3's best games." Oh we're all very happy that you had such a good time, but what about us? We won't get to play until later this year. No scampering around an open world duffing up enemies and other players, not for us yet. If it's any comfort,…

Martial Arts Sim Absolver Was One Of E3’s Best Games

I saw good games at E3 and I saw great games, but no other game surprised and delighted me as much as Absolver [official site]. It’s a game about punching and kicking opponents in an open world, but describing it as a beat ‘em up seems unfair. It’s a martial arts simulator, with elements of both Dark Souls and Zeno Clash but a combat system…
