We can all be sure that when the Lords of the Fallen developer creates a new IP, there’s much fighting involved.

We expect The Surge to release next month on May 16th on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game is developed by Deck13, the team behind Lords of the Fallen and, as you could expect, it’s heavily based on combat and mastery of skills. Below you will find some additional description from the creators, as well as a freshly released gameplay video:

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.
