The Surge, Deck 13’s upcoming hardcore action-RPG has received a brand-new combat trailer showcasing the game’s technical combat system.
The sci-fi, Dark Souls-inspired title from the Lords of the Fallen developer is set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life. Check out the game’s new combat trailer below.
As showcased in the Target, Loot & Equip Trailer, make use of vertical and horizontal attacks, as well as strike power, to target and dismember specific limbs, so you can loot what you cut. Looting upgrades for your exo-suit is key to progression, and surviving challenging physically based combat situations is a matter of skill.
Positioning and speed are vital, so make use of your exo-enhanced dodges, blocks, ducks and jumps to avoid attacks while managing stamina, ensuring you’re always in the right place to strike the limb you want, or to avoid a potentially damning blow. The rules of combat apply to both you, and your enemy: get hit in an unarmored limb, and you’ll go down faster. Take advantage of the enemy’s weaknesses while balancing your own, and you’ll walk away with his strengths.
But you’re not alone. Throughout your journey you’ll be assisted by your industrial drone, with abilities once used for CREO’s industrial needs now manipulated into a fighting machine. Shield yourself, or Burn, knock down, pull, and blast enemies at your will as you continue to fight in melee.
The Surge is slated for release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 16. The game will support Sony’s enhanced PS4 console, the PS4 Pro.
