The Surge E3 2016 trailer comes out
Focus Home Interactive released an E3 trailer for The Surge, showcasing the eerie near-future setting.
The Surge -- the newest sci-fi action-RPG from developer Deck13 -- drops players in a near-future where they slice and dismember their way into the CREO, an institution developed to save the world with disastrous consequences.
Members of CREO are outfitted with exo-suits, which supply both power and human strength. The members are also able to attach make-shift tools to the exoskeletons. Players must use the exo-suits and make-shift weapons to survive after something inside CREO goes horribly wrong.
In the E3 trailer (above), the reluctant hero is first seen discovering the exo-suit modules. The trailer shows that the dystopian world is the worst-case scenario for earth, as players must delve deeper into the mega-corporation to find out what went wrong with CREO and how they can stop it.
With Deck13’s classic duel-style and combat system expanded with unique limb targeting mechanics and paired with a heavy emphasis on environmental storytelling, there are thousands of combinations of armor and make-shift weapons to dismantle, craft, and merge with the player’s exo-suit.
The Surge will be released in 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
