The Surge – Combat Trailer Showcases Exo-Suit Combat

The Surge

Last month, Deck13 Interactive released an exciting CGI trailer for their upcoming multiplatform Action-RPG, The Surge.

Most of RGM’s team feel that CGI trailers get the hype train started and ACTUAL gameplay keeps it going. Today, Deck13 Interactive has released a gameplay trailer showcasing the combat players can expect in the game.

To be honest, the gameplay looks amazing. The character’s movement is fast, fluid and you must time blocks, dodges and counter-attacks and manage your stamina meter.

The Surge releases on May 16th, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Today’s Combat Trailer challenges you to survive the deadly CREO facility, making use of The Surge’s fast, technical combat system.

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.
