Deck13, the studio behind the pretty decent Dark Souls clone, Lords of the Fallen, has released a slick looking cinematic trailer for its upcoming futuristic Dark Souls clone, The Surge.
The Surge will have you take on the role of Warren, an employee at mega corporation, CREO, who on his first day experiences a disastrous event that knocks him out. After he wakes up, he finds himself in a dangerous new world full of rogue AI and psychopathic, augmented co-workers. Luckily, Warren has some augmentations of his own:
The Dark Souls inspiration for The Surge can definitely be seen through the gameplay that has been showcased, but what makes this interesting is the futuristic setting, which might help the game to distinguish itself a bit from that comparison, something that Deck13’s previous game, Lords of the Fallen failed to do, even though it wasn’t a bad game at all.
The Surge has been confirmed for a 16 May release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
