There’s just one weekend left before hardcore action-RPG The Surge releases for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 16.

Watch the Launch Trailer on YouTube:
Balancing risk and reward is key in The Surge’s combat, as the unique loot system gives you greater control over what you claim from defeated enemies. In visceral combat, target specific body parts and damage them with a combination of vertical and horizontal attacks before slicing the part off entirely. What you dismember directly determines what piece of equipment you loot! When approaching an enemy, you face a difficult decision: Do you target an unarmored body part for a shorter fight, or risk a lengthier, more damaging battle for a chance at slicing off a shiny new piece of equipment?
To get the best loot you’ll need to take on the most difficult enemies, so positioning and speed are vital. Use your exo-enhanced dodges, blocks, ducks, and jumps to avoid attacks while managing stamina, ensuring you’re always in the right place to strike the limb you want―or ready to avoid a potentially damning blow. The rules of combat apply to both you and your enemy: Get hit in an unarmored limb, and you’ll go down faster. Take advantage of the enemy’s weaknesses while balancing your own, and you’ll walk away with their strengths!
Prepare for The Surge releasing May 16 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One, and PC – Pre-order today and receive three exclusive in-game bonuses. Visit the official website for more info.
About The Surge
Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.
As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.
The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat. Be sure to stay tuned for more about The Surge over the coming months!
