Today, publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 (best known for Lords of the Fallen) released three new screenshots for its upcoming action RPG The Surge. The screenshots collectively as a batch are called “Mini-boss” screenshots, and feature — obviously — some of the game’s mini-bosses.
First time hearing about The Surge, but want to know more? Well then, here’s an overview from Focus Home Interactive itself:
The Surge is the newest sci-fi Action RPG set in the near-future from developer Deck13. Slice and dismember your way deeper and deeper into CREO, an institution developed to save the world, but with disastrous consequences. The E3 Trailer introduces to a dystopian world based on a worst case scenario for Earth.
Fronted by Jonah Guttenberg, CREO sets out to reverse the detrimental atmospheric effects of global warming, firstly by repairing our damaged atmosphere, but as their ambitions grew and their plans began to fail, CREO set out to save itself…
Members of CREO’s workforce are fitted with expandable, powered exo-suits supplying the employee with both power and super-human strength. They are also able to attach new practical tool extensions to the exoskeleton.
Something in CREO went horribly wrong, and you as the player must use this exo-suit and a plethora of make-shift weapons and armor upgrades to survive. Slice and smash deeper and deeper into the mysterious mega-corporation to discover what happened, and how you can stop it.
The Surge is set to be Deck13’s first game since it was not picked to do the Lords of the Fallen sequel. The Surge is slated to release sometime in 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Below, you can check out the new screenshots:
