A catastrophic event has knocked you out during the first day on the job… you wake up equipped with a heavy-grade exoskeleton, in a destroyed section of the complex. Robots gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI - everything wants you dead.
The Surge is an action RPG set in a world ravaged by war and global warming. The game offers a hardcore experience, with a focus on challenging, visceral melee combat. It features fresh fighting, looting and crafting mechanics, alongside a unique character progression system.
Fitted with your exo-suit and cybernetic implants, harness super-human strength to survive the CREO complex, a mega-corporation that set out to save the world. Enhance your exo-suit with near-endless combinations of armor and weapons, each with their own move sets as you slice your way through steel and flesh to loot, craft, and improve your rig. Salvage weapons and modular armour, by using the dynamic targeting system to attack and dismember limbs individually.
From lighting rigs to heavy lifters, security armor to advanced, secretive technology – mix and match equipment to suit your playstyle and overcome the adversarial and environmental challenges that plague the malfunctioning complex. Take on huge, industrial bosses in a complex gone mad and discover the truth about CREO.
- Thanks to the dynamic targeting system, you can aim at your opponents’ specific limbs to dismember them, in order to loot or craft the attached equipment. Go for the easy kill by hitting unarmored limbs, or attempt to claim a piece of equipment from the enemy by targeting a specific area.
- Specialize to meet your needs - from heavy armor attached to your exo-rig to staves, axes, and heavy-lifting equipment, use CREO’s cutting-edge industrial technology against the threats that lay ahead.
- Alongside your exo-rig, you are fitted with a cognitive interface between your brain and the exo-suit, powering implants looted from enemies and the game world. Your exo-suit has a limited power output, so it’ll be up to you to balance the benefits and downsides of each implant against the power requirements of your exo-suit upgrades and equipment.
