Absolver gets new expansion

The expansion is free and the content is flowing.

Independent developer Sloclap and sucker punch experts Devolver Digital have today launched Absolver: Downfall, a new, free expansion for the online melee combat brawler Absolver on PlayStation 4 and PC. With the game’s beautiful visuals already a large draw, this expansion will no doubt bring a new hoard of fighters to the fray.

The expansion brings a new game mode, new combat style, new school challenges, and a fistful of new gear for Prospects and Absolvers. In more detail, the updates includes:

  • Downfall Mode: Absolvers will face their toughest challenge yet as they battle through the new Adalian Mines as a solo warrior or in online cooperative play. Each run through the procedurally sequenced mines and temples offers a unique path through a variety of challenges against upgraded enemy combatants and three intense boss fights.
  • Faejin Combat Style: The nw Faejin Combat Style blends defense and offense with percussive strikes and fluid power. The new approach is a complex style for experienced Absolvers, featuring shifting defensive abilities and two dozen attacks for bare hands, wargloves, and armed combat.
  • School Challenges: Absolvers who have reached the Disciple rank in a school can participate in School challenges, by using their school’s decks and powers in 1v1 Combat Trials. All wins representing one’s school count in the School challenges, with individual and collective performances of the schools bringing fresh rewards every three weeks, at the end of the season.

Absolver will be 50% off on PlayStation 4 and PC for the next week to celebrate the launch of the new Downfall expansion. To learn more, or to get the base game in your mits, you can find Absolver on Steam.
