Ex-Watch Dogs developers reveal online combat RPG Absolver

Ready and fable.

Indie publisher Devolver Digital has picked up Absolver, a stylish "online combat RPG" due for release on PC and unnamed consoles next year.

Absolver is the work of Sloclap studio, a new Parisian developer formed by ex-Ubisoft employees who have worked on Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon.

Now a year into development, Absolver certainly looks the part - although we'll have to wait a little longer to see how it actually plays.

All we know so far is that it will have real-time battles, both PVP and PVE play, and arena-based combat.

Here's the debut teaser trailer:
