Play Die Reload
This stylish third person martial arts game from Sloclap, published by Devolver Digital, is a very impressive first entry for this indie studio. Absolver features complex and strategic combat teamed with a semi open world PvE storyline to accompany its primary PvP focus, which leaves you with a game that feels one of a kind. Certainly not a title to be enjoyed by everyone as its blend of genres makes for an experience that is challenging and competitive.
This early access effort from Signal Studios currently holds potential and like many early access products, lacks content. There’s plenty to hope for with the continued development of Savage Lands and the current state of the game offers some exploration and a fairly well fleshed out world with regards to lore for the player to take part in. The current content within the world is limited and offers chunks of game time for those interested in following the development. For those who want to sink hours of time into a survival game however, definitely wait for Savage Lands to move further along in it’s development as the content is currently bare bones.
Before I get into this review, I have something of a disclaimer. The scale of this game is far too colossal for me to have managed enough playtime to do a complete appraisal, so this review is based off my initial impressions and will be devoid of any substantial speculation as to what the game ‘might’ hold later down the line. It clearly has more content that I have not yet broached. However, as I have no idea where that content may lead and may not have any idea for maybe 30-100 hours more gameplay, I will not try and fill in the blanks.
