Nature vs. machines
Focus Home Interactive has released a fresh batch of shots from The Surge 2, the sequel to the Dark Souls-like sci-fi adventure. The first thing to notice is that the environments seem to be a lot more varied this time around. According to developer Deck13, this instalment takes place in "a sprawling, devastated city with larger...
Releasing "in a few months"
As part of its "What's Next 2019" event, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that Deck 13's The Surge 2 will release "in a few months" time, indicating a summer launch is on the cards. Alongside that, the two teams announced a continued partnership that will help shape the development and subsequent release of a...
Republished on Wednesday 27th March 2019: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of April's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows. The Surge makes a great first impression. Its opening hour introduces you to a combat system that takes clear inspiration from the likes of Dark Souls and...
The Surge was a pretty divisive game when it launched last year. We weren't particularly enamoured with it, but some enjoyed its sci-fi spin on Dark Souls-esque gameplay. Focus Home Interactive has released a trailer for The Surge 2, and it looks like there will be a greater variety of environments to fight through. The first...
Mech some room for it
Focus Home Interactive has today revealed that it's once again joining forces with Deck 13 to bring us The Surge 2, a sequel to the sci-fi Souls-like action game. It's planned for release in 2019. The sequel will apparently build upon the aspects that people enjoyed - the limb-removing combat and RPG elements - and swap the...
Mech it happen
If you skipped The Surge when it launched back in May, then you way want to prepare yourself for a playable demo that's coming to PlayStation 4 next week. The action role-playing title proved to be reasonably divisive; some players thought it punched well above its station, while others thought it was just okay and nothing...
Our review wasn’t overly complimentary, but if The Surge is still on your wishlist, then maybe you’d like to take a look at over an hour of gameplay footage? We recently streamed a chunk of the so-called Sci-Fi Souls, and we’ve embedded all of the archived action above for your viewing pleasure.
The Surge, the action role-playing game from the developer behind Lords of the Fallen, has looked pretty solid in previous gameplay trailers. It's got exosuits, evil robots, and big bloody hammers. It's something a little different, then, and it's launching on the 16th May for PlayStation 4. It's also got a new, tone-setting cinematic...
Brave new world
Deck 13's dystopian Dark Souls-esque title The Surge will deploy in May on the PlayStation 4, the developer has announced. The studio confirmed the date alongside a new trailer, which shows protagonist Warren starting work at shady corporation CREO. But it's not long before a catastrophic event turns artificial intelligence against...
Surge of cerberus
This is a pleasant surprise: The Surge is taking Dark Souls' gameplay and turning it sci-fi. Apparently announced eons ago, this is the first your humble host has seen of Deck 13's latest, and while it obviously lacks the artistic panache of a From Software release, the gameplay loop's looking strong – even if the obligatory...
