If you have not heard of a game that goes by the name of The Surge, let me bring you up to speed. The Surge is an action-RPG with a heavy focus on tactical melee combat. The game allows you to target certain body parts of an enemy and then dismember them. Not only is it gory and fantastic but you can then take the severed head back to your lab for research where you can adapt the helmet that was on the head to fit you – couldn’t he just take the helmet off the dead guy instead of carrying a head around?
The development team behind the project is Deck 13, they also developed another Dark Souls clone called Lords of the Fallen. In the latest video for the game, which you can see below, game design head Adam Hetaney talks through the initial story premise and highlights some of the unique game mechanics. Check out the video below and let us know if you think it has the potential to dethrone Dark Souls as the best action-RPG?
