The Surge receives a CGI trailer and a release date

The game will be available this May on all three major platforms.

The Surge is developed by Deck 13, the team behind the well-appreciated Lords of the Fallen. It’s another take on the Souls formula, but this time set in a sci-fi universe. Here’s a video that introduces you to the world of mechanically-upgraded humans:

The Surge will be released in May 2017 (no specific date was given) for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Here’s an official synopsis:

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. 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.

Now equipped with a state-of-the-art exoskeleton, you’ll have to improvise in order to survive – tools manipulated by CREO workers, while not originally meant for combat, make for effective lethal weapons. The equipment pieces compatible with your exo-suit will make you faster, stronger, and sturdier. During battle, 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.
