Paris – Independent developer Sloclap and sucker punch experts Devolver Digital have launched Absolver: Downfall, a new, free expansion for the online melee combat brawler Absolver on PlayStation 4 and PC. Absolver will also be 50 percent off on PlayStation 4 and PC for the next week to celebrate the launch of the new Downfall expansion. Absolver: Downfall brings a new game mode, new combat style, new school challenges, and a fistful of new gear for Prospects and Absolvers.

With 4 million players and counting, Absolver released late last year to critical acclaim and a loyal community of players that has grown with ongoing updates to the game as new content, modes, and gameplay upgrades have been introduced since launch. The Absolver community is set to receive a fantastic, mysterious new expansion this fall that will introduce a whole new way to experience the world of Adal.

Update 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 new 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, war gloves, 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.
