Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 released a brand new trailer for their upcoming action RPG The Surge. It is the first time we are meeting the hero of the game. We haven’t been given a name yet, but it seems like he has a slight drawl from the southern US. The trailer features several exo-suits, equipment that is central to the game’s plot, and several weapons, such as a forearm mounted blade, a large two handed morning star, and a large double bladed energy weapon.
The Surge is set in a dystopian future after climate change ravages Earth. Humans have been split into two groups, those in power and those who spend their lives in exo-suits performing menial labour for CREO. The game is set to launch in 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.
