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 the humble hero.

Armed with a state-of-the-art exoskeleton, you'll need to fashion ordinary construction tools into deadly weapons. Clearly the likes of Bloodborne have inspired this futuristic foray, but the unique backdrop sets it apart from anything From Software has done. Personally, we reckon that this is shaping up to be a nice summer distraction; will you be picking it up?
