Debut title from start-up to launch in 2017

A group of developers from Watch Dogs and Ghost Recon: Wildlands studio Ubisoft Paris have left to start their own company.

The former Ubi staffers opened Sloclap under the radar last year, but have now emerged to announce their debut title.

Absolver is an online RPG set for release next year, featuring real-time arena combat and both PVE and PVP modes. The game is said to be more than a year into development.

Sloclap has joined forces with indie publishing house Devolver Digital to bring the game to PC and console.
