I'm not very good at the 2D fighters, like Street Fighter, Tekken, what-have-you, but I have a better chance of surviving in 3D dueling games like Jedi Outcast (my favorite in this class), Zeno Clash, and most recently Blade Symphony. When I saw the trailer for Absolver, I thought it looked like a perfect mix between Blade Symphony and Zeno Clash (granted, Zeno Clash is first-person perspective, but Absolver evokes the same feeling, for me). While Blade Symphony is strictly an arena fighter, Zeno Clash offers exploration through detailed level environments while erecting boundaries when the fight starts. Absolver's environments, in that beautiful, stylized rendering, causes me to hope the game will be more free-roaming then it might actually be. While it sounds like there will be a modicum of exploration, fight might be kept to bounded areas (arenas?) in a similar way that Zeno Clash works. Very interested to follow Sloclap's progress with this one.
Coming in 2017 to PC and consoles.
