Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive have announced that its upcoming sci-fi action RPG The Surge will release in May on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Alongside the release window, a new cinematic trailer was also revealed.
The CGI trailer explores Warren's first day on the job at CREO, the megacorporation on a mission to save a dystopian world from itself.
"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," Focus Home Interactive explained. "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."
Equipped with a state-of-the-art exoskeleton, you will need to improvise in order to survive. The equipment pieces compatible with your exo-suit will make you faster, stronger, and sturdier. During battle, you can target specific limbs of your enemies, slice them and retrieve the powerful attached equipment to improve and power-up your own suit, allowing you to delve deeper in the CREO complex and attempt to put an end to the madness initiated by the Surge.
More details on the game will be revealed later this week at the "What's Next de Focus" event in Paris.
