The Surge E3 2016 trailer comes out

The trailer shows the first look at the reluctant hero's quest to figure out the dystopian, corporation driven world.

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.

    I'm looking forward to this. I need to properly try Lords of the Fallen, but I think a lot of the issues I have with the Dark Souls type game play, will be nullified when you are taking apart mechs.
