The Surge has finally been given a solid release date.

The Surge, the Souls-like action RPG from Lords of the Fallen developers Deck13, was recently given a May release window. Today, the developer confirmed the game will launch on May 16.

To celebrate, the developer released the second part of that CGI trailer. Today’s trailer puts more emphasis on the action, though, and it looks good.

Although The Surge may appear like sci-fi Souls, it’s actually got a lot more going for it than that. The game features a limb targeting system that lets you attack specific body parts and limbs on enemies to gain appropriate powers and loot.

The most recent gameplay trailer showed the progress Deck13 made since demoing gameplay footage for the first time last year. Give it a watch to get an idea of how the game actually plays.

The Surge is out May 16 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
