Thanks to newly revealed details, we now know a bit more about The Surge.


The Surge is an upcoming action-RPG from Lords of the Fallen developers Deck 13. The game was officially revealed around gamescom this year, but with very little details.

The studio did not bring us gameplay today either, unfortunately, but it did make it less mysterious. In a post on the PS Blog, creative director Jan Klose said the game’s world represent the “worst-case scenario” for today’s problems.

According to Klose, the game’s combat is tactical and in close-quarters, where your upgraded limbs do all the work. You’ll also be wearing an Exo suit that you can upgrade and modify to boost strength and other attributes.

“The difference to Lords of the Fallen is that we take more time introducing the different features for the player at the beginning of the game,” Klose said. “Not in a lengthy tutorial, but as you are advance in the game, the features that will help you overcome your enemies will come one by one so that you can grasp the whole toolset of possibilities and not miss on some of them just because they were introduced poorly.”

The Surge remains without a release date.
