The Surge has a release date, new cinematic trailer

I’m really conflicted about The Surge. On one hand, a futuristic clone reimagining of a Dark Souls-ish game could be absolutely brilliant – but on the other hand, it’d be so easy to screw it up entirely. Gameplay footage uploaded by publisher Focus Home Interactive seems to point towards the former, but there’s just something that feels… off about the whole affair.

We’ll have to wait and see when the game launches this May. In the meantime, there’s a brand new “stronger, faster, tougher” cinematic trailer to ogle at.

“Deck13’s upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge today unveils a new CGI trailer, showcasing intense, visceral combat between man and machine,” reads the trailer’s description.

The Surge is headed to PC, PS4 and XBO on 16 May. More information about the game can be found on its official website here.
