The Surge

If you haven’t heard much about The Surge it is an action RPG that takes inspiration from the Dark Souls games, and features Warren, on his journey to battle against the megacorporation CREO. Here is how the game is described on the official website:

“The Surge is an action RPG set in a world ravaged by war and global warming. The game offers a hardcore experience, with a focus on challenging, visceral melee combat. It features fresh fighting, looting and crafting mechanics, alongside a unique character progression system. Fitted with your exo-suit and cybernetic implants, harness super-human strength to survive the CREO complex, a mega-corporation that set out to save the world. Enhance your exo-suit with near-endless combinations of armor and weapons, each with their own move sets as you slice your way through steel and flesh to loot, craft, and improve your rig. Salvage weapons and modular armor, by using the dynamic targeting system to attack and dismember limbs individually. From lighting rigs to heavy lifters, security armor to advanced, secretive technology – mix and match equipment to suit your play style and overcome the adversarial and environmental challenges that plague the malfunctioning complex. Take on huge, industrial bosses in a complex gone mad and discover the truth about CREO.”

The Surge is available now for $59.99 USD on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Let us know if you’ll be taking part in the demo and keep it locked to find out when it will be happening.
