Deck 13’s upcoming sci-fi action role-playing game The Surge is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on May 16th, 2016, publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced.
Alongside the announcement, the publisher has sent over a new CGI trailer that shows main protagonist Warren battling enemies deep within the CREO complex.
“Megacorporation CREO works to reverse the devastating effects of climate change, but the facility is hit by a mysterious, catastrophic event. After awakening from a blackout caused by this disaster, Warren is thrust into a deadly new world. Robots gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI – it seems like everything wants him dead,” the developer explains.
During combat, players will be able to attack both armored and non-armored body parts. Attacking an armored body part deals less damage, but offers an opportunity to deal a finishing blow that will sever the part. This part can then be used to upgrade Warren’s exosuit or be scrapped for materials.
