A release date has finally be given to Deck13’s upcoming action-RPG, The Surge. It will be released on May 16th, 2017 with special bonuses for those who pre-order. Check out the new CG story trailer above to get pumped for breaking apart enemies in a complex filled with mechanical foes.
The trailer gives an overwhelming feeling that everything is out to get you as you explore the CREO Complex. Armed with your own mechanical suit, players will have to take down various enemies, including rogue AI, deranged coworkers, and robots that have lost control. I expect that as you delve deeper into the world of The Surge, secrets behind why the Complex is falling apart will be unveiled. We already know research was being done on climate change, but a catastrophic event hits the Complex with a bit of mystery surrounding it. I’ll be very curious to see how the story unfolds throughout the game.
However, the main reason you’ll be coming to The Surge will be for its innovative looting system. Players can dismember enemies and takes the parts that were severed to equip and upgrade your own set of armor. That is interesting enough, and knowing this is the crew that did Lords of the Fallen, I expect some fairly difficult encounters on top of that.
Players who pre-order the game will also receive three bonus pieces of content. A limited edition rig, a damage boost, and a way to find secrets in the game, will all be waiting for you when the game launches.
The Surge arrives on May 16th for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
