Deck 13, the developers of Lord of the Fallen, has release a new trailer for its upcoming action-RPG The Surge.The new cinematic trailer explains a bit of the setting and sets up the game’s story.
Although the game is only now getting a cinematic trailer, The Surge was announced as far back as E3 2016. Oddly enough Deck 13 released a gameplay trailer long before this new trailer.
The developer has also been pretty open about the story. Here is their description of the story.
“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 that all wants Warren dead.”
One of the more unique aspects of gameplay is the ability to target specific limbs. In combat targeting specific limbs will result in enemy exo-suit parts falling off which can later be retrieve. These parts can then later be used to upgrade Warren’s exo-suit with things like enhanced strength or speed.
The Surge launches May 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
