The Xbox Game Pass is great for many things, but the most important is that of allowing multiplayer centric titles the opportunity to reach a larger audience than usual. And that is how we are seeing Absolver arrive on Xbox One.
Launching on Xbox One as both a paid for and Xbox Game Pass title is nothing new – after all, since the massive Game Pass overhaul, the service has gone from strength to strength – but today, with the launch of Absolver on Xbox One, we are seeing the real benefit.
Billed as an online multiplayer experience in which you get to define your own fighting style, Xbox One owners who plump for a bit of Absolver action will find themselves dropped in behind the mask of a Prospect, before being tasked with exploring forsaken lands, taking on head-to-head fights with others and learning new combat skills in the process.
Fighting alone or in the most intense 3-on-3 battles, how your Prospect goes about things is entirely up to you. Combat styles are varied, as are the weapons of choice, and by taking on foes, or sparring with friends should the need arise, you’ll find your skills and knowledge increasing. It is then when you’ll begin to discover your journey to Absolution.
With solo opportunities enhanced by the online cooperative and versus modes which are available, and Absolver taking the defining route of launching on Xbox Game Pass, there is nothing to stop you and some friends from taking on the world. Of course, should you not have a subscription to the best games service available, then a usual purchase from the Xbox Store for £23.99 is doable.
How you go about getting a copy of Absolver on Xbox One placed in your library is entirely up to you. Let us know how you deal with this online multiplayer focused combat experience by posting in the comments below.
Absolver is an online multiplayer combat experience where players are placed behind the mask of a Prospect by the ever-present Guides, the new rulers of the fallen Adal Empire that will determine your worth in joining their elite corps of enforcers. Prospects will wander forsaken lands, encountering others to learn new combat skills, acquire weapons and armor, and engage in solo duels and intense three-on-three battles. Players will define their Prospect’s approach by picking a combat style, a weapon of choice, and arranging attacks in their Combat Deck to design their unique and personal attack flow. Through battle with opponents, sparing with friends, and even taking on a mentor players will expand their knowledge and mastery of combat with new moves, weapons, and armor on their journey to Absolution. Gameplay modes include solo play, online cooperative modes, and online versus modes.
