Focus Home Interactive has today released a new trailer for its recently launched action game The Surge. This new video shows off the praise that the game has been receiving from critics since arriving earlier this week.
If you still haven’t heard about The Surge, it’s a new action game in the same vein as the Dark Souls series. Fight enemies, collect scrap to upgrade your character, fight massive bosses, and try not to die. The difference between The Surge and other titles in the Souls-like genre is that it takes place in a sci-fi setting.
Our own Tomas Franzese reviewed The Surge for DualShockers and gave it an 8/10 which equates to a “great” on our scale. In his review he speaks highly of the game’s ability to break new ground saying:
If this genre of games inspired by the Souls series is going to continue, it is important that future titles in it can build upon what has already been established and try to do something new with it. That is why I am so happy The Surge is able to do so.
