The Surge Launches in May; Gets New CGI Trailer

on January 26, 2017 8:32 AM

Today, Deck 13 announced that its new hardcore action RPG, The Surge, is set to release sometime in May, for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to the release date announcement, the developer also unveiled a new CGI trailer exploring Warren’s (the protagonist) first day on the job at CREO, the megacorporation on a mission to save a dystopian world from itself.

The following description of the trailer is provided:

Freshly recruited as an augmented worker, Warren’s first day coincides with a catastrophic event deep inside CREO, during the routine surgical operation meant to graft, through flesh and bone, the exo-suit required for the company’s employees. This disastrous event marks the first in a series of brutal events, turning this first day at CREO into a hellish nightmare of robots gone haywire, crazed employees with fried cranial implants, and artificial intelligence all wanting Warren dead.

Now equipped with a state-of-the-art exoskeleton, you’ll have to improvise in order to survive – tools manipulated by CREO workers, while not originally meant for combat, make for effective lethal weapons. The equipment pieces compatible with your exo-suit will make you faster, stronger, and sturdier. During battle, target specific limbs of your enemies, slice them and retrieve the powerful attached equipment to improve and power-up your own suit, allowing you to delve deeper in the CREO complex and attempt to put an end to the madness initiated by the Surge.

Publisher Focus Home Interactive has said it will share more information about the game on February 1st and 2nd at Le What’s Next de Focus in Paris.
