Weekend Combat Test: Thanks for your feedback, round 2 is around the corner!

Hi everyone,

Thanks a lot for participating in the Gameplay Beta weekend on Steam! We’ve been caught up reading all the quality feedback we got on all the Absolver boards, and we apologize for not getting back to the community earlier!

We’re running a new test session this weekend, again focused on Gameplay iterations to prepare for the 1.16 patch. Please bear in mind that the 1.16 patch will have new content, we’re just not revealing it yet :).

You’ll find below all the information needed to enter the Beta: dates, hours, how to get in and saves recommendations! The Full Patch Note is at the bottom of this post.

Steam Beta Information

How to get in and general information

We are going to run an open beta for all Absolver Steam players, it will be accessible via the “Beta” tab, in the “Properties” of Absolver in Steam. No code is required to access the Beta. You can already enter the branch on Steam, but please note that the new build will only be available in a few hours.

The objective of this beta is to test some changes to the combat gameplay, gather feedback and data, and finally validate or not these changes for the next official patch.

Opening Hours

The beta servers will be opened at the following times:

Saturday March 3rd, Sunday March 4th:
  • Europe: 5pm > 9pm UTC
  • US: 6pm > 10pm EST
  • Singapore: 6pm > 10pm UTC+8
  • Sydney: 6pm > 10pm UTC+11

About your saves

You can copy and paste your main save folder content in the newly created “Beta” folder, once you have launched the Beta game at least once (so the branch folder and its corresponding save folders are created).

Please note that we do not recommend using your Beta save in the actual game, during Beta or once it is over: compatibility issues can occur.

In any case, we recommend backing up your save folder if you want to use it in the gameplay Beta.

You’ll find below a link to all details regarding this weekend’s testing session! All comparisons are made with the Patch 1.14 values.

About This Game

In the ruins of the fallen Adal Empire, you awaken with a mysterious mask on your face, and faint recollections of an esoteric ceremony. Freeing you from hunger, thirst, and even death, the mask is the creation of the Guides, the rulers of these lands, who have placed you here to determine whether you are worthy of becoming part of the elite corps of Absolvers. As you wander these forsaken lands, encountering other Prospects like you, you will learn new combat styles, acquire weapons, gear and armor, and build a team of warriors with whom to fight side by side in Arenas of combat.

Please visit the official Absolver FAQ on the Steam discussion board for more information: http://steamcommunity.com/app/473690/discussions/0/2579854400733819593/

Fluid Real-Time Combat: Position yourself in one of four tactical stances during real-time battles and execute devastating attacks, dodges, and parries. Movement becomes your weapon as you engage in solo duels or intense multiplayer melee battles.

Customizable Style and Flow: Players will define their character’s playstyle by picking a combat style, a weapon of choice, and arranging attacks in their Combat Deck to design their unique and personal attack flow.

Online Multiplayer Action and Narrative: Prospects and Absolvers will seamlessly encounter others in the world, generating unique stories that emerge through player interaction and choices. These moments are filled with tension as intentions to battle or befriend are never clear: trust is always a leap of faith. Encounters will have lasting consequences and transform into meaningful relationships as you make friends or enemies and find mentors or disciples.

PvP and PvE: Explore a rich and dynamic world including dedicated PvP battle arenas where champions will receive spoils of victory and progress in the ranks of the Absolvers, and PvE areas in which players cooperatively battle to retrieve rare loot and equipment from the ruins of Adal.

The development team at Sloclap is dedicated to improving and expanding Absolver based on community feedback once the game is live. In the coming weeks and months, Prospects can expect regular updates to the game to fix any issues that appear, as well as both minor and major content updates. These updates already include 3v3 Game Mode and a Spectator Mode soon after launch, but many more updates can be expected, from new combat styles and moves to new powers and equipment. Please follow updates here and on absolver.com or @Absolver on Twitter for the latest.
