The Surge gets new gameplay footage showcasing the sci-fi RPG’s combat, mission system, and more.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive today released 14 minutes of uncut gameplay footage from The Surge, accompanied by commentary from Deck13 Game Designer Adam Hetenyi, providing an in-depth look at this sci-fi RPG in action.
Today’s footage does a good job of showcasing the various systems found in The Surge, as Hetenyi explores the dystopian environments in CREO’s mysterious industrial RND complex, the Abandoned Laboratories. We get a look at the game’s combat system. One of the more interesting features comes to how players approach dealing with targeting their opponent’s limbs. Attacking an armored limb may deal less damage to your foes, but focusing on it until it’s severed will allow you to loot the spoils for yourself. Additionally, we also see how the game’s quest system works. As you explore the CREO facility you’ll meet survivors who either need help or who can offer assistance. Taking on these missions can shower players in extra rewards. However, you’ll have to prioritize between taking on these quests and gathering more shiny loot or delving deeper into the facility, because once dropped, your tech scrap will diminish over time.
