The Surge Gets a Behind the Scenes Trailer

Hardcore action-RPG The Surge comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 16, 2017. Go behind the scenes in today’s trailer, as the Deck13 team discusses how they created the game’s brutal combat and unique sci-fi setting.

Watch the Behind the Scenes Trailer on YouTube:

While The Surge takes place in an industrial, near-future Earth setting, it tackles issues relevant to our own world like environmental destruction, corporatism, and misuse of technology. Taking control of the exo-suited Warren, players will explore rich, secret-filled environments and venture deep into the heart of tech company CREO’s devastated facility―all while battling crazed employees with fried cranial implants and robots gone haywire.

Using the limb-based targeting system, players can exploit enemy weaknesses―though as Deck13’s Thorsten Lange states, “the same rules apply for the enemies.” Positioning is of the utmost importance, and even the smallest misstep can end in death. Warren isn’t an “overpowered superhero,” and combat animations were given credibility through extensive motion capture sessions with a stuntman, resulting in combat that feels weighty and satisfying.

Prepare for The Surge, coming May 16 to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, and PC. Visit the official website for more information.

About The Surge
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. Be sure to stay tuned for more about The Surge over the coming months!
