This Action RPG gives players the chance to choose their own targets.
We’ve already described some mechanics of The Surge, but the latest video titled Target, Loot and Equip focuses on the loot you’ll be getting from the fights. In general, your fight style determines what elements you’ll receive. Below we share the official description of this system, as well as the aforementioned trailer:
The Surge gives players greater control over what they loot from defeated enemies. During combat, they can individually target specific body parts, which they can damage with a wise combination of vertical and horizontal attacks to then slice off – and what part they dismember directly determines what piece of equipment they loot. When approaching an enemy, players will make a difficult decision: do they target an unarmored body part for a shorter fight, or risk a lengthier, damaging battle for a chance at slicing off a shiny new piece of equipment?
