A new trailer for Deck 13’s upcoming sci-fi action RPG The Surge shows off the game’s combat system.
In The Surge, players will need to make use of vertical and horizontal attacks, as well as strike power, to target and dismember specific limbs and take down enemies. Dismembering and collecting enemy limbs to upgrade the exo-suit is the key to surviving the journey though the deadly CREO facility.
“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,” publisher Focus Home Interactive explains. “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.”
Last week, the publisher revealed that The Surge will bet getting a day one update that includes support for the PlayStation 4 Pro. Owners of Sony’s upgraded console can choose between 4K at 30 FPS or 1080p at 60FPS.
The Surge launches May 16th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
