It would seem that, in the world of The Surge, even life before everything went tits up was still a bit on the unpleasant side. Showing the series protag having something screwed into the back of his head with less than tender care.
The weird part is, until the actual screw part, he seemed quite happy to be there, bolted into a metal operating chair of some kind. Perhaps we’re going to learn that everything has actually always been this way, and he’s just had one of his mind control implants interrupted by…whatever new thing happened.
I am not a number…I have an exo-skeleton! Something like that? Welp, what we do know, is that this is Warren’s very first day on the job, which he apparently volunteered for. He seems to have been told that he was off to save the frikkin’ day, but I highly doubt he signed on to fight giant mechaniocal monstrosities, the likes of which we’ve already seen in earlier videos.
Regardless, we will have more information at next weeks “What’s Next de-Focus” event, and the game will release, across all major platforms, this May, so buckle up buckaroos.
The Surge’s new trailer explores a bad day at the office
Deck 13’s new hardcore action-RPG The Surge today unveils a CGI trailer exploring Warren’s first day on the job at CREO, the megacorporation on a mission to save a dystopian world – pessimistic vision of our future – from itself.
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 all wanting 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, and 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.
Make the most of your exo-suit, armor, and almost limitless armament combinations to survive CREO when The Surge slices its way onto PS4, Xbox One, and PC in May 2017.
