Out tomorrow, Deck13's action-RPG The Surge looks to take the hardcore melee combat and action of something like Dark Souls and translate that into a sci-fi world where exo-suits and technology has gone awry. In the game players take control of Warren on his first day of work at a mega-corporation where a catastrophic event results in him missing out on orientation. And being shown where the tea room is.
Balancing risk and reward is key during The Surge’s combat, as the unique loot system gives you greater control over what you claim from defeated enemies. In visceral combat, individually target specific body parts, damaging them with a combination of vertical and horizontal attacks before slicing the part off entirely - and what you dismember directly determines what piece of equipment you loot. When approaching an enemy, you face a difficult decision: do you target an unarmored body part for a shorter fight, or risk a lengthier, damaging battle for a chance at slicing off a shiny new piece of equipment?
Check it out.
The Surge is being released for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. And if you get in quick you can still be in the running to win a copy for PS4.
