Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.
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.
Combat and Targeting - Combat is challenging and unforgiving. You’ll need to carefully study your enemies, rather than blindly rushing and wildly swinging your weapon without focus. Study their attack patterns and weaknesses, then strike hard and fast – even the weakest of enemies can be deadly!
Exo-Rig and Implants - The base rig can be enhanced with light, medium, or heavy attachments, allowing you to specialize into your chosen playstyle. Granted super-human strength, you are able to wield huge weapons and inflict massive damage onto your enemies. Alongside the 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.
Getting Stronger - The further you delve into CREO and the longer you survive, the more tech scrap (XP) you’ll gain from defeating enemies and bosses. Die, and the metal scrap farmed to that point will be dropped where you fall. You will have to fight your way back to regain it, or lose it forever. Over time, you will also naturally increase your efficiency with the various weapon types by using them in combat and improve your affinity with them.
Looting and Crafting - Explore CREO’s many varied environments, both inside and out, and use your implants to target specific enemy ligaments to gain crafting resources. Use these to improve your equipment, upgrading your weapons and armor throughout CREO’s scattered safe-rooms.
The Creo Complex - CREO’s complex is huge and filled with secrets, intrigue, and threats warped by a catastrophic event. Although many of its inhabitants were not originally designed for combat, each area houses dangerous combatants that once worked in these environments. Armed with lethal industrial equipment, you must risk everything to explore, loot, and craft to survive.
