The Surge is an upcoming game being developed by Deck13 Interactive and published by Focus Home Interactive. Deck13 Interactive was also responsible for developing Lords of the Fallen. Given how it was received, I’m curious about what they’ve learned since then and what new ideas they are implementing into The Surge. Recently a new trailer was revealed, titled The Surge – Tougher, Faster, Stronger. This CGI trailer shows off the setting, combat, and enemies you’ll face in the game.
Here it is:
I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest fan of CGI trailers. However, this is certainly as interesting premise and world on display. Assuming combat works like in the CGI trailer, it should be pretty fun. In addition, I’m curious exactly what spin this game will give to the Souls-esque gameplay. A science-fiction setting could introduce some revelatory concepts if handled correctly.
Hopefully we’ll see some gameplay with explanations of how everything in the game works. I’d also like to see a demo, so players can get hands-on time before launch. However, they choose to do it, we definitely need to see more of the game. Which, incidentally, is not very far off. As shown in the trailer, The Surge will release on May 16th, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
