Multiplayer is a crucial part of Absolver. Within it, players will engage cooperatively and in hostile encounters with and against each other, and learn new moves as they go.
Absolver Multiplayer Information
Players can form parties of up to 3 people, roaming the landscape together and defeating enemies. Just be careful not to strike one another, as the game does feature friendly fire.
There's a feature called the Mentor System in Absolver, whereby players can train others in their martial art style or their “School“. Players who become the Student of another will gain access to all the moves available to their Mentor in the Combat Deck, but only as long as they remain a member of that School. As players rank up in said School, they will gain further rewards that have yet to be announced.
Competitive play is where players can take on others in duels called “Combat Trials“. In this mode Absolvers will face random opponents or friends in a best of 5 series of rounds that is somewhat similar to more traditional fighting games. There are ranked matches and there will be tournaments in the near future, so stay tuned for details on those.
The Overtake mode is a 3v3 zone control mode added in the 1.11 update. Players must capture zones to earn points, and whichever team controls a zone when it runs out gains a chunk of points.
Downfall is Absolver's cooperative end game dungeon. It can be played solo, in a team of two, or a team of three. It sees you battling through rooms of enemies and simple encounters to reach the boss. So far, there are three encounters (each building off the last) with their own boss. Playing Downfall rewards the player with Gleam: a kind of XP.
