The game has been defined as an online melee action game. Dig a little deeper and you'll uncover an intriguing combination of 3D fighting games, online open-world RPGs and deck builders, with a wide spectrum of influences ranging from various other games. It's a probing transmogrification of different genres, yet it's the game’s third-person brawling, and the exclusive Combat Deck, that form its beating heart. The player’s journey in the game begins when they arrive in the collapsed empire of Adal. As a fresh-faced Prospect, their goal is simple: defeat a series of mini-bosses known as the Marked Ones to gain entry into the Tower of Adal. Once there, they should fight their way to its summit, and face off against one final boss to prove their worth and earn the right to join the vaunted ranks of the Absolvers. This expedition isn't quite as straightforward as it sounds, of course, especially with so many battle-hardened warriors standing in your way. Defeat teaches one what they can take into the next battle and the game’s deep, nuanced battle always finds ways of alluring the player back for another fight.
