In the spirit of live action/CGI trailers, Deck 13 released a trailer called “Bad day at the Office” for the upcoming RPG The Surge. The trailer shows us a little backstory of the company and the main character gaining his exosuit, as well as a few flashy scenes of the main character battling some robotic baddies.
The Surge looks to be an interesting title, with a similar control scheme to Dark Souls, and combat very much focused on stamina and rolling, it looks to take what Dark Souls did right with combat and transport it into a futuristic sense. With a fixed character and narrative, I worry the game will end up similar to Lords of the Fallen, but it may surprise us. The idea of using machinery as weaponry isn’t a new venture but it will be interesting to see the variance and way in which we use them.
The only question I have is….
The exosuit looks welded onto his overalls into his body, how does he get changed? or does the exosuit pop off. It’s going to get very messy wearing the same thing everyday.
Let us know your thought on The Surge, out May 2017
