Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive have released a new trailer showing off the combat in their upcoming Souls’ like action RPG The Surge. You can check it out below.
The Surge is set in a dystopian future where Earth is nearing the end of its life.
“As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.
The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.”
The Surge is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 16th. You can pre-order now.
Smith’s Sentiment: It looks pretty good (although maybe a little stiff), but you can’t really tell how it feels by watching it. Dark Souls style gameplay and difficulty combined with the dystopian futuristic setting is certainly intriguing. Very interested in this one.
