The Surge releases next week on Xbox One, PS4, PC and having spent several hours wandering about the wastelands it’s clear Deck 13 has drawn influence from a certain Dark Souls series. The design is almost carbon copy although it does have a unique take on the formula with its combat. Players are tasked with cutting body parts from their adversaries which in turn nets supplies for upgrades, weapons and bits of mech suit – all handy stuff when out in the field. This means that although it’s easy to chop and slice away at enemies (and as you grow in power becomes easier to take them down) one has to be mindful of which body part to hack off adding a neat layer to the combat. Take a look t The Surge 4K gameplay videos which show various states within the game during the opening sections.
