Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13 released a new trailer for The Surge yesterday, giving fans a good look at the highly varied combat found in the game.
The trailer shows off quite a few different environments within the game, but, more notably, shows off just how fast-paced The Surge’s combat can be. Before this trailer, most of the combat seen in previous footage from the game followed the slow methodical approach of most Souls-like games. After this trailer, however, the uptick in pace and use of vertical elements in combat is readily apparent.
The game will take place on a dystopian vision of a future Earth ravaged by climate change, where the rise of AI has caused an explosion in the human labour force. Players will face off against both robotic enemies and fellow humans whose physical capabilities are enhanced by mechanical exoskeletons.
Focus Home Interactive previous released a commentated, fourteen-minute gameplay trailer for the game a couple of months ago, giving insight into the story and RPG elements of the title.
The Surge is due for release on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One on May 17th.
