The Surge CGI “Stronger, Faster, Tougher” Trailer Shows Man Going up Against Machine

March 17, 2017Written by Mack Ashworth

We’ve already had preview of The Surge‘s gameplay, with this 14-minute uncut demo. Now we’re being treated to a CGI trailer, which you can watch above. Launching on May 16, The Surge will “pit man against machine,” as players engage “foes in tight, visceral melee combat.”

Deck13’s upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge today unveils a new CGI trailer, showcasing intense, visceral combat between man and machine. After exploring Warren’s first day at the office in the previous trailer, we now witness him battling mechanical foes deeper within the CREO complex.

Megacorporation CREO works to reverse the devastating effects of climate change, but the facility is hit by a mysterious, catastrophic event. After awakening from a blackout caused by this disaster, Warren is thrust into a deadly new world. Robots gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI – it seems like everything wants him dead.

Players are pitted in a desperate fight to survive, engaging these unpredictable foes in tight, visceral melee combat. Grow in power with The Surge’s next-gen looting system – target and slice specific limbs off your enemies in battle, then equip the weapons or armor you dismember!

The Surge is now available to pre-order. In addition to accessing the game at launch, players who pre-order will get access to three exclusive in-game bonuses.

  • The CREO PS01 Limited Rig – A lightweight rig with a flashy yellow paint job!
  • Mechanized Counterweight V.0.9 Implant – This injectable implant can be triggered to temporarily increase your damage output in battle.
  • Dowsing OS Proximity Sensor Add-On Implant – In a facility as vast as the CREO complex, there are a lot of secrets to find. This implanted proximity sensor will help you hunt them down as efficiently as possible!

These specialised pieces of equipment include a whole new look for Warren, as well as a set of implants that change up how you’ll battle the rogue AIs and deadly robots that inhabit the CREO facility.
