After a leak confirmed its name, The Surge from Deck13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive has been officially unveiled.

Scheduled for a 2017 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, The Surge is a single player action RPG. Here’s what the developers had to say about its setting:

Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.

As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.

The new artwork revealed today (above) is said to be “indicative of the kinds of areas you’ll explore and fight in The Surge.”

Expect more details to be revealed in the coming months.
