Just in case early 2017 still isn’t busy enough for you, Deck13’s The Surge is arriving in May.
From Lords of the Fallen developer, The Surge is a sci-fi take on the Dark Souls-like formula. And, until Nioh releases next month, Deck13 are the developer that have probably come the closest to taking on FromSofware successfully.
A new cinematic trailer also gives some details on what to expect from The Surge‘s storyline. It’s all as you’d expect; mysterious corporations, creeping monologues, things going badly. Of course, if you’re more of a gameplay person, plenty of videos have been released.
Past ‘May 2017’, Deck13 don’t give anymore detail on the precise release date – so it hopefully won’t be the same day as Prey. Many people’s excitement for this will certainly be based off their opinion of Lords of the Fallen. Some thought it was a clucky mess. Others thought it was the best Souls-like out there.
Whatever your opinion, The Surge is looking to stand out more on its own merits. A pretty unique setting, faster gameplay and – hopefully – just a more improved game overall. Praise the Surge, indeed.
“Freshly recruited as an augmented worker, Warren’s first day coincides with a catastrophic event deep inside CREO, during the routine surgical operation meant to graft, through flesh and bone, the exo-suit required for the company’s employees. This disastrous event marks the first in a series of brutal events, turning this first day at CREO into a hellish nightmare of robots gone haywire, crazed employees with fried cranial implants, and artificial intelligence all wanting Warren dead.”
