Deck13 is working on The Surge, a hardcore action-RPG for the PlayStation 4. We’ll surely learn more about this game as we get closer to its May 2017 release, but for now we wanted to share with you a CGI trailer for the game that will give you an idea of what the studio is aiming to do with this PS4 release.
Jan Klose, Creative Director at Deck 13, had this to say:
Freshly recruited as an augmented worker, Warren’s first day coincides with a catastrophic event deep inside CREO, during the routine surgical operation meant to graft, through flesh and bone, the exo-suit required for the company’s employees. This disastrous event marks the first in a series of brutal events, turning this first day at CREO into a hellish nightmare of robots gone haywire, crazed employees with fried cranial implants, and artificial intelligence that all wants Warren dead.
Now equipped with a state-of-the-art exoskeleton, you’ll have to improvise in order to survive — tools manipulated by CREO workers, while not originally meant for combat, make for effective lethal weapons; the equipment pieces compatible with your exo-suit will make you faster, stronger, sturdier. During battle, target specific limbs of your enemies, slice them and retrieve the powerful attached equipment to improve and power-up your own suit, allowing you to delve deeper in the CREO complex and attempt to put an end to the madness initiated by the Surge.
