Deck 13's The Surge Receives Hardcore-Action Combat Trailer

The Surge takes on a futuristic approach to the Souls formula with robotic suits and such, but the Souls undertone is very much present.

Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13 released a new trailer for The Surge yesterday, giving fans a good look at the highly varied combat found in the game. Today's trailer is a little more straightforward than that: It's called "Combat", and it's about-you guessed it-combat. The main takeaway here is that you'll be able to control your attacks horizontally and vertically, targeting specific body limbs. Using your exosuit, you can block, jump, dodge and also duck (no ducking in Dark Souls), to avoid attacks while managing stamina. The rules of combat apply to both you, and your enemy: get hit in an unarmored limb, and you'll go down faster.

The Surge is slated for a release on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 16.

Players will not be alone during their adventure as the industrial drone (once used for CREO's industrial needs) can be used as a fighting machine to provide a shield or knock down, pull at, burn and blast your enemies.
