The Surge: 4 Minutes of Gameplay from Deck 13’s Upcoming Action RPG
Have a nice day at CREO Industries!
Deck 13’s upcoming hardcore action RPG The Surge today unveils four minutes of unedited gameplay, showing the visceral, uncompromising combat, the limb-cutting system, as well as a few of the brutal enemies prowling the dysfunctional CREO Complex.
While some of the earlier enemies encountered while exploring the complex―namely your former coworkers―have erratic behavior and may be defeated easily if you are not reckless, others are much more combat-ready and will hunt you down relentlessly.
The result of unspoken experiments, volatile prototypes built from secret nano-technology, or simply efficient death machines built for maintaining security in high-risk environments, these enemies leave no room for mistakes during combat. The slightest misstep or moment of hesitation will certainly mean death for you. However, these enemies wear some of the best equipment, weapons, and implants you can claim for your own use. You’ll have to decide if you wish to secure a victory by attacking their weak spots, or take the risk of aiming for their armored parts, hoping to recover this precious equipment that will make you stronger, faster, and tougher.
Balance the need for better equipment versus your own survival… but remember, you’ll definitely need to power yourself up when you inevitably face the world’s bosses, which will definitely put your skill to the test!
Make the most of your exo-suit, armors, and near limitless armament, combinations to survive CREO when The Surge slices its way onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2017.
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 aging 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!
