Watch 4 Minutes of The Surge Gameplay That Focuses on Combat

December 14, 2016 Written by Alex Co

In a press release, Deck 13 has rolled out a four-minute gameplay clip of its sci-fi Dark Souls game, The Surge. Watch The Surge gameplay above to see some limbs getting chopped off,  and other brutal moves.

While some of the earlier enemies encountered while exploring the complex – namely, your former fellow workers – have erratic behavior and may be defeated easily if you are not reckless, others are much more “combat-ready”, and will hunt you down relentlessly.

Result of unspoken experiments, volatile prototypes built from secret nano-technology, or simply efficient death machines built for maintaining security in high-risk environments, these enemies leave no room for mistakes during combat. The slightest misstep, or moment of hesitation, will certainly mean death for you. However, these enemies wear some of the best equipment, weapons and implants you can claim for your own use. You’ll have to decide if you wish to secure a victory, attacking their weak spots, or make your life a bit harder and aim for their armored parts, hoping to recover this precious equipment that will make you stronger, faster, tougher.

Balance the need for better equipment versus your own survival… but remember, you’ll definitely need to power yourself up when you inevitably face the world’s bosses, that will put your skill to the test!

The Surge will slice its way out on the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
