Absolver 1.06 Update Adds Devolver Masks & Fixes Bugs

The fascinating online melee combat game Absolver got a little bit stranger on Wednesday with the release of update 1.06, which added six new and unusual Devolver themed masks alongside a raft of bux fixes.

These masks can be grabbed in the Guidance Hub for a limited period of time, helping to alleviate some of the frustrations with the loot system and endgame rewards that Sloclap are working on fixing

As with any game these days, and especially those that are heavily online, there’s a lot of bug fixing and tweaking of balance immediately after release. Sloclap had actually wanted to release this update sooner, but stumbled into some bugs that were trickier to fix than expected.

They highlight the powers and items loss issues, crashes during boss  cutscenes and disconnections during Combat Trials as the main fixes, but you can catch  the full patch notes below in this handy expandable section.
