A new trailer has dropped, courtesy of Focus Home Interactive, for Deck13's The Surge. This trailer focuses heavily on the combat for which new information was released. As detailed in a previous trailer, combat will make use of vertical and horizontal attacks, stamina management, and accurate limb removal for both defeating enemies and increasing in strength.
In The Surge, every combat action has an associated stamina cost, which means that position and speed are vital to taking advantage of enemies. Players will be able to block, duck, hop, and dodge away from enemy attacks. Enemy units follow the same rules as players, so weaknesses found in enemies can be used against the player if not properly accounted for. An industrial drone will also accompany the player, providing numerous combat benefits such as shielding or knocking down enemies.
The Surge will pit players in a CREO facility gone haywire, where the only chance for survival is to fashion an Exo-suit and take the machines head on. The game will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 18, 2017.
