Action RPG The Surge Coming to PS4 Next Year

Hi readers! Jan from Deck 13 here. We’re currently working away on our new game The Surge, a visceral sci-fi action RPG on PS4 with a few mechanical twists. Today we’re talking combat mechanics and crafting integral to the core gameplay experience.

Fitted with an advanced CREO exo-suit, balancing your core power against your implants and exo-suit upgrades will allow you to specialize in a huge variety of combat styles, thanks to the almost limitless combinations of exo-suit add-ons and dozens of make-shift weapons salvaged from the industrial complex at CREO. Finely tune your gear to match your playstyle, and to best suit the challenge ahead.

What’s more, the Metroidvanian levels open up as your core power increases, allowing you to over-charge doors previously too strong for your suit to damage, opening new pathways to explore. The CREO facility is vast, and if you want to find and craft the best equipment and weapons, you’ll need to explore every area for secrets and hidden items.

The Surge features innovative combat mechanics, allowing you to target individual limbs, dismembering the exo-suit add-on, or weapon, that you want to acquire. Collecting tech-scrap and blueprints, you’ll be able to return to the Operation Center to level up and craft new exo-suit add-ons and weapons salvaged throughout the level.

These can even be acquired from the world’s gigantic, industrial bosses. Most of what you encounter in The Surge was never designed to kill you, and most of the items you loot and craft were never designed for combat, but the combined strength of the exo-suit and near-future technology of CREO turn anything from fork-lifting add-ons to laser cutters into lethal weapons and armor suitable for diving deeper into the CREO complex.

We can’t wait to see what you think of The Surge when it launches next year on PS4.

  • Very excited for this. I love the idea of a sci-fi Souls game and this game looks very promising.

  • MoreGainPlease

    this looks really intriguing, especially if the endgame and postgame are rewarding. i wanna look like super galaxy gurren lagann by the time i’m maxed out.

  • Can I change the ethnicity of the protagonist?

    • twinspectre

      @3
      I was banned on the BF forum for asking the same thing you did. Maybe because white can’t say the same thing that other ethnicity can say. I bet even PlayStation blog will ban me for asking the same thing you did
      I’m realising that If you’re White you don’t have the same freedom of speech like Black, Hispanic and Asian

      @twinspectre
      I’m not even going to get started on what’s wrong with what you said, so I’ll just say this.

      You’re white, you have more freedom than anyone, shut up.

      On top of that, don’t bring this crap here.

  • StealthieOne

    twinspectre you probably got banned for sounding like a racist?

    • twinspectre

      what so racist about asking If I can play with my ethinicity??? (White)
      I didn’t used the N word even If black can say WhiteCr…. without being banned

    • ByakuyeahTogami

      @twinspectre

      You sound like a racist, mate.

      You have a million games out there with a white protagonist.

      You can deal with not playing as a white guy.

    • Senju_Karim

      @twinspectre I see nothing wrong with your question (I’m black) and I do agree that these days it seems as if there is a horrible double standard. Whether or not there are countless of other white protagonists/ male etc asking if you can play as whatever you identify as is not discriminatory against any other demographic. Has the world really gone that mad? Does anyone actually know what racism is? (Discrimination against someone on the basis of race… yes all races can be racist not just white people…I know groundbreaking)

      It’s sad, get over yourselves and stop trying to shutdown everyone with the logic that this entitled generation has. Everyone is not racist, white people are not the enemy/ all are not racist. All white people are not privileged and have all freedoms etc. Please treat everyone with respect and dignity and let’s strive for the equality that we all deserve.

      He/ she did not attack anyone, was not disrespectful yet was disrespected and called a racist. (A serious allegation!) A great point was also made that if a “minority” had said the same thing no one would respond like this. It’s a reality that should be addressed if we truly want to be equal to everyone.

    • ByakuyeahTogami

      @Senju

      “I’m black” holds no grounds. There black people fighting against racism right now.

      Stop talking.

    • Senju_Karim

      @ByakuyeahTogami yes as they should and as EVERYONE should when encountered with REAL racism. It seems as if you disregarded all of what I previously posted since I disagreed with your assertion and rather than taking the time to understand an opposing view you want me to be silenced…well done you’re going places.

      Since I have to clarify, “I’m black’ serves to outline that although I am not the same race as the person with the initial comment, I can understand and empathise as I prefer to think and use facts instead of emotion.

      I will reiterate, where there is ACTUAL racism let us work together and destroy it. It is disgusting and holds no place in society.

      Either way this is a place for the discussion of this new game (which looks amazing! :D) Let us not detract from this team’s announcement.

  • Senju_Karim

    This game looks really great! Looking forward to learning a lot more :D Had me at action-RPG

    • AizawaYuuichi

      I’m with you. “Action-RPG” brought me to the article. The sci-fi, suit-building, metroidvania description sold me on it. The Surge is now firmly on my radar for next year.

  • This looks interesting. I’ll keep my eyes peeled out for this one.

  • DRockTheGreat

    Whoa! This forum is not for race debate. Although I will say this, racism is not just calling someone names and treating them different based on race. True racism has two key components power and the financial backing to implement the institutions, policies, regulations and other things of that nature. With that being said, not everyone has the ability to be racist.

    • TrueRadiantFree

      Anyone can be racist. Get out of your liberal, minority bubble. You’re being reversely racist if you think some people have a pass when it comes to racism.

  • twinspectre

    I’m ok, with Black protagonist I have nothing against them
    I’m against the idea of Black can talk how they want without repercussion meanwhile a white If he say something like the black guy did, he will be labeled as Racist
    this doesn’t create Equality, this create Racism

  • twinspectre

    I’m not saying I want a white guy, I said “I was banned on the BF forum for asking the same thing you did”

    @ByakuyeahTogami
    this is the main problem, and it makes Racism

    I didn’t say the game Must have a White Protagonist, I just said I was banned on the BF forum for asking the same thing you did
    and what kind of Freedom are you talking about?

  • twinspectre

    @ByakuyeahTogami I’m seeing here the one that want Racism to exist is you. Maybe you don’t know what Equality really means and what Racism is

    If a Black guy say Racist think to a white, the Black guy isn’t labeled as Racist
    if a White guy say Racist think to a black, the White guy is labeled as Racist
    now, try to figure out where the Equality is and how can you fight Racism this way
    Racism will die when Everybody Respect each others not based on Ethnicity but as Human Being
    this World Isn’t mine or yours but it is Ours Human Beings

    • RichiRamjag

      Peoples parents and grandparents were directly influenced by major racial events. Of course there are going to be sore feelings and sensitivity over such a matter. Stop being a buffoon.

  • Mad--Butcher

    Looks very promising.

  • Action RPG took my attention , but! Exo-suit… Well I don’t know , I’m seeing lots of it recently, specially on CoD games, not that I won’t play CoD, but, well… I’ll keep an eye on this game, but the exo stuff, scraping, feels like post apocalyptic world and I’m getting sick of this kind of game… Can’t we get more games like Final Fantasy XV? It’s fantasy, yes, but looks a little sci-fi but don’t take place in a post apocalyptic word and It’s also an action RPG.

  • PAPAMiDNiT3

    SCi Fi Dark Soul, I’m Hype for this

  • RichiRamjag

    Looks good! Can’t wait to try it out.
