Absolver’s New Update Brings the Halloween Spirit

As mentioned in our review, the success of Devolver Digital and developer Sloclap’s online MMO brawler Absolver is going to depend a bit on its post-launch content. And with Halloween just days away and several games beginning special events for the holidays, there really is no better time than now for the game to deliver a new update. So in the spirit of the season, Absolver brings nine new masks and night settings for the PvP Combat Trials, among other things.

As seen in the update video below, six of the nine new masks will be Halloween-themed, and dropped by Marked Ones, and brawls can now be held in the evening as well. In addition, Rift Coins and Rift Disks have been added to the loot system to give items of various rarities, players beyond Level 60 will be rewarded by the Prestige system, and “sort” and “salvage” features will be added to the inventory. You can read more about the new contents here at the the official site, and the game is twenty percent off during Steam’s Halloween sale, so now would indeed be a good time to get into Absolver.
