Absolver's newest update adds Devolver Digital-themed masks


Keeping it in the family

Online slugfest Absolver‘s latest update lets players adorn their faces with masks inspired by some of Devolver Digital’s other games. In addition to the new headgear, the 1.06 update includes numerous UI improvements and ability-related tweaks.

The full patch notes are evidence of developer Sloclap’s ongoing efforts to make Absolver reach its full potential. There’s plenty of information to glean from the post on game’s Steam page, but the real star of the patch is the host of new Devolver-themed masks.

Players can grab masks inspired by Hotline Miami, Enter the Gungeon, Ruiner, Shadow Warrior 2, The Talos Principle, and Mother Russia Bleeds from Absolver‘s central hub before heading back into Adal and challenging foes to some fisticuffs. According to Sloclap, the new gear won’t be available forever, so loot-hungry Prospects would be wise to snag them sooner than later.

I haven’t spent too much time with Absolver since reviewing it last month, but seeing the steady flow of updates coming to the game — and that goddamn cute Bullet Kin mask — is enough to get me interested in sparring again.
