The Surge Goes Gold, PS4 Pro Support Includes Dynamic 4K at 30fps

Releasing on May 16 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC through retail and digital stores, action-RPG The Surge has gone gold, Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 announced today.

On day one, there will be an update for The Surge that adds PlayStation 4 Pro support, letting you choose to play in either dynamic 4K at 30 frames-per-second or in 1080p at 60fps. Another update, coming shortly after launch, will add HDR support.

Here’s what to expect from The Surge:

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 Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat. Be sure to stay tuned for more about The Surge over the coming months!
