Watch The Surge's Hardcore Action RPG Combat in New Trailer

April 20, 2017 - Deck13's upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 16, 2017. Today's Combat Trailer challenges you to survive the deadly CREO facility, making use of The Surge's fast, technical combat system.

As showcased in the Target, Loot & Equip Trailer, make use of vertical and horizontal attacks as well as strike power to target and dismember specific limbs and loot what you cut off. Looting upgrades for your exo-suit is key to progression, and surviving challenging combat situations is a matter of skill.

Positioning and speed are vital, so make use of your exo-enhanced dodges, blocks, and jumps to avoid attacks while managing stamina-ensuring you're always in the right place to strike the limb you want or to avoid a potentially damning blow. The rules of combat apply to both you and your enemy: get hit in an unarmored area, and you'll go down faster. Take advantage of the enemy's weaknesses while balancing your own and you'll walk away with its strengths.

Throughout your journey you'll be assisted by your industrial drone, with abilities once used for CREO's industrial needs, now manipulated into a fighting machine. Shield yourself or burn, knock down, pull, and blast enemies in The Surge's brutal melee combat.

The Surge arrives May 16 to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Visit the official website for more info.

All this technical bravado, hi-resolution models, super-res textures, complex shaders and rich effects only created a below average, no fun, AvoidWare mess…

Look at Serious Sam's Bogus Detour gameplay. That defines FUN!

Do you have any reasoning for not liking it or are you just disliking for the sake of disliking it?

I haven't followed it much so this is a serious question.

It's funny because my first thought was that it looks like Lords of The Fallen in space, and that was before I realized it's the same developer.

Oversized hammers/swords… comical-looking exoskeletons… Gears of War art style…. limited, repetitive gameplay… Everything points to a mediocre game buried beneath tons of eye candy.

Obviously something very shallow that's aimed at a young console audience. To call it a Role-playing game or science-fiction is blasphemy imho.

It's a miracle that it works at all… there's too much, and it's like jazz… a product like Oblivion - far better software… but Morrowind… oh there's so much delicious nonsense in that." ~ words of wisdom by K.Rolston
