The Surge will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in May 2017, Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13 announced.
A new CGI trailer, titled “Bad Day at the Office,” was also released. Here’s an overview of the trailer, via Focus Home:
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.
Focus Home Interactive will share more information about the game on February 1 and 2 at Le What’s Next de Focus in Paris.
