The Surge is a pretty fun game, combining just enough Souls-like elements to make it interesting while still looking and feeling like its own thing, and I wholeheartedly agree with everything in Gareth’s review. It’s definitely not everyone’s cup of robot oil, but how will you know until you try it? Well, you won’t.

Thankfully, Deck13 has announced that prospective Surge-ers (that’s totally not a thing) will get the opportunity to do just that with an upcoming free demo.

The announcement comes via a tweet from the game’s official account, explaining that the demo will be out “next week” on PC, PS4, and XBO. Accompanying the tweet is a short teaser video to get the juices flowing.

Another tweet also confirmed that the demo will include “critically acclaimed PS4 Pro features, such as HDR, Dynamic 4k, and 60FPS in 1080p mode”.
