A sci-fi action RPG in the vein of the Dark Souls series, The Surge’s last few trailers have really tried to show off how it stands apart from the rest of this popular niche genre. In particular, the real aim in combat is to dismember enemies, so that you can steal parts of their armour and use that to better your own equipment.
Given that loot is earned through combat, it’s no surprise that the latest trailer sounds a little familiar, as it also showcases the game’s combat. This time around it’s more about highlighting the dodging, blocking and stamina management so that you can strike when needed, in order to get those parts that you want.
Having gone gold at the end of last week, The Surge is out on 16th May for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
