Deck13’s upcoming Souls-Like Action RPG The Surge finally has a release date and you wont have to wait long , as it releases on 16th May 2017.
A new CGI trailer has also been released in conjunction with the announcement of the release date. The trailer although not representative of the actual game-play, it does offer a pretty decent insight into the tone and the direction that the game is going to take. You can watch the trailer down below.
Developer Deck13 which is known for its work on Lords Of The Fallen , promises that its new title will be a brutal all action adventure. The game is set in the near future where automation has taken over much of the manufacturing sector . You will step into the role of an Average Joe factory worker who is armed with an Exo-Suit and you must fight off against similarly armed humans and mechs.
Here is an official synopsis of the game courtesy of Deck13
Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases. As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency.
The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization. The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.
The Surge is available for pre-order now. Let us know if you will be buying the game by commenting in the comments section below.
