Deck13‘s upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge is coming to PC on May 16 2017, as well as some consoles. Today we thought we would share with you the Combat trailer which challenges you to survive the deadly CREO facility and demonstrates the technical combat system.
Showcasing vertical and horizontal attacks, as well as strike power, to target and dismember specific limbs, so you can loot what you cut the game certainly looks to have a very fluid combat system. Looting upgrades for your exo-suit is vital for progression, and surviving challenging physically based combat situations is a matter of skill.
Positioning and speed are necessary to 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.
Check back for a full review when we finally get our hands on it.
