The Surge is an upcoming action-RPG from Deck13 Interactive and boasts hardcore combat "Souls-style." It remains to be seen if that claim by Deck13 Interactive is accurate. The new combat gameplay trailer does show some merciless combat, with very little room for mistakes. The acrobatics of the character is impressive, and the reaction time required to not only survive, but to also take out enemies do seem daunting. The player will have to make use of "vertical and horizontal attacks, as well as strike power" if they want to be the last man standing. The Surge also includes looting and upgrade features for the exo-suit. Here are some pointers from the press release. "Positioning and speed are vital, so make use of 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 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 his strengths. But you’re not alone. 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 at your will as you continue to fight in melee." The Surge releases on May 16 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
