A demo of post-apocalyptic action RPG The Surge is available to download today for PS4, Xbox and PC via Steam. In the demo, you play as Warren, using an enhanced mech exoskeleton to get around in a sprawling complex where rogue machines and basically everything is out to kill you. You are employed by mega corporation CREO, which is hit by a disaster in the first few hours of the game.
In this universe, the world is controlled by mega corporations like CREO rather than governments, as humans are faced with an ageing population and environmental disasters — becoming redundant in the face of ever sophisticated technology…
The game was highly acclaimed when it came out in May, but was perhaps overshadowed by the saturation of great titles around that time, such as Horizon: Zero Dawn. The demo includes all the enhanced features for PS4 Pro users — and if you choose to continue the adventure in the main game, your actions carry over.
Check out the demo reaction trailer with some famous YouTubers above. You can also check the official Surge website for more information and to get a copy of the full game.
