The Surge

An action RPG set in a dark science-fiction world, developed by the German team Deck 13 – the co-creators of Lords of the Fallen. The story shows a dystopian vision of the future, where human technology turned against its creators, plunging the planet into chaos. We play as an ordinary citizen, who, like everyone else, uses the achievements of modern technology and the capabilities offered by fully customizable exoskeletons. The gameplay draws from such the famous Dark Souls series and is characterized by significant difficulty level and melee combat focus. What sets The Surge apart is a unique character development system. It is closely connected to combat, allowing us to seize opponent’s technology and gear, and then mount it on our own exoskeleton.

The Surge for Xbox One is an action RPG set in dark science-fiction world. It was developed by the German developer studio, Deck 13, mainly known as the co-creator of Lords of the Fallen, a Polish game released by CI Games.

Story

Unlike the aforementioned title, the game’s story is set in a dystopian vision of the future, pulled straight out of science-fiction novels. The game takes us 60-70 years in the future, to an age after humanity’s technology has turned against it, bringing ruin to the entire planet. With the advancement of machines, most of the jobs up to now performed by humans became unnecessary. Those who survived were forced to leave the overpopulated towns and head for rural areas looking for work.

This post-apocalyptic world is home to artificially modified humans as well as some more inhuman inhabitants. Although most humans use popular exoskeletons, created to boost effectiveness and abilities of people. Thus, we don’t play as soldier, but rather an ordinary human in possession of customizable exoskeleton.

Gameplay

The game’s world is shown from third-person perspective, and the gameplay itself is based on such titles as Lord of the Fallen or the already classic Dark Souls series, meaning it can boast a high level of difficulty. Thanks to the employment of modern technology and the aforementioned exoskeletons, the fights are more dynamic than in competing titles, though that doesn’t change the fact that aside from a huge arsenal of modern weapons, the game heavily emphasizes melee combat.

One of the features that sets The Surge apart from competition is its unique and very extensive crafting and upgrade system, which is deeply connected to fighting. While in combat, we can e.g. target a specific limb of an enemy and take his technology for ourselves. The upgrades obtained in such way can be integrated into our own exoskeleton.
