Sloclap’s new brawler, Absolver, launched just 3 days ago on both Steam and GOG and already has cheats uploaded on one notorious website. Yes, you read that right, 3 days after launch cheats including god mode and instakill have already been released en masse.
No, I won’t link to the site that contains the cheats, but it’s very easy to find via a simple Google search if you want to see for yourself. Why won’t I link to them? 2 reasons. The first reason is simple, I don’t condone cheating in online games. Second being that I can’t guarantee the site or the downloads they provide are “clean” and because of that will not link to them. I care about my readers, and I would hate to see someone get malware or something similar through a link I’ve left.
Instead of linking directly to the cheats, I’ll leave you this link to a thread on the Steam Community that provides video proof of both god mode and instakill.
Anyway… How this will affect the growth and development of Absolver is still unknown, my best guess is that it’s not going to be good. Cheats will always exist in games, but to see a trainer widely distributed just a couple of days post-launch is definitely not a good sign for any game. This is unfortunate because Absolver is an amazing game if you’re into melee fighting and harsh competition.
On top of the week 1 cheats, Absolver has also undergone a slew of server-related issues since launch, with some regions being completely devoid of any dedicated server support. But, the player count has remained relatively strong and hasn’t fluctuated a whole lot since release, yet. I can’t imagine that it will drop by a huge amount, unless the cheating gets prevalent or the servers aren’t stabilized soon enough.
Those couple of faults aside, I’ve really been enjoying Absolver. The story & PvE experience is rather light, but the MP / PvP more than makes up for it. Right now there are only 1v1 matches to take part in, but the devs have already confirmed that more modes will be released sooner than later as well as more of the world to explore. I can only imagine that there will be other additions (that haven’t yet been mentioned) as well, personally, I’m hoping for some more fighting styles outside of the realm of Kung Fu, some Muay Thai or Karate would be cool to see implemented at some point.
