About The Surge

About this game

Defy deadly enemies and huge bosses in tight, visceral melee combat in the action RPG The Surge. With this Steam PC key, you'll experience a pretty hectic first day on the job at mega-corporation CREO as a catastrophic event unfolds.

Equipped with a heavy-grade exoskeleton in a destroyed section of the complex, you'll attempt to fight your way out past robots that have gone haywire, insane augmented co-workers and rogue AI - everything wants you dead!

HACK, SLASH AND COLLECT

Target and slice specific limbs off your foes, with a next-gen loot system where you loot what you dismember. Equip, upgrade and craft new weapons and armors sliced from enemies, and make yourself stronger through a fresh take on leveling-up.

SOULS-LIKE EXPERIENCE

Test your ability to not only survive but to also upgrade in an unforgiving world. Find Schematics and Tech Scrap materials in order to craft bigger and better weapons and armor.

Be wary though, one false move in combat or taking on an enemy too powerful could end in defeat. If killed, you'll drop all of your recently collected XP, Tech Scrap and rare scrap from your inventory - so be sure to race back to your 'place of death' to re-obtain them.

Die before you get there and your precious items and XP will be lost for good. With each save, you also reset non-boss enemies around you, so be cautious when heading into familiar surroundings after saving!

YOUR OFFICIAL THE SURGE STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • An extremely challenging hardcore action RPG.
  • A dystopian world full of mystery.
  • An array of huge, fearsome bosses.
  • New weapons and armor to loot, craft and upgrade.
  • A unique targeting, dismemberment and level up system.

Love Dark Souls. You will love this one. You got to push past the first chapter. This is my absolute souls like favourite game; sequel too. I have heard many people saying they were not into it after a couple of hours; I put it down a couple of times after getting stuck in the first section... as you do in any souls like. Push through, you will get past the steep early learning curve and you will love this! Surge is on my list of top 8 games where I was so hooked I immediately started a new game after beating it.

A really great Souls-like. The level design is great and encourages exploration, the combat is fun, and severing limbs to complete gear sets is satisfying. Good story and the ambient is very good.

I love souls games and love the gritty environment this takes place on, and the marriage of man and machine.

A game that should be tried for several reasons. There is an interesting upgrade system, spectacular combat, but also graphics. The only thing that makes the rating 4/5 is the small absence of backstory and lore, but... since the price is currently quite affordable, it's a great opportunity to get a game and have some fun.

For what it sets out to do, Surge is pretty good. Neat mechanics, cool ways of using those mechanics, all that stuff.

The Surge Review

Sam Jones
Staff Review
The Surge is an intense Dark Souls inspired action RPG, with a motivating combat system that draws players back into the game - even when they are being destroyed by the ruthlessly intelligent AI. Colorful, and immensely cool, The Surge is a must have for fans of slash 'em up combat.

It's a souls-like, cyberpunk-ish sci-fi RPG with mechs, crazy augmented people, and some pretty rad concepts. It can be frustrating at times, not because it's difficult but because they didn't quite get the controls and movement down right. Despite that, it's still a lot of fun to play and there are some really neat ideas here. The DLC is hit or miss, so you'd likely be fine with just the base game, and if you haven't played the series before you should probably start with that anyway. You'll also want to experiment with different weapons, armor, and builds, because they can change up the gameplay quite a bit. Godspeed folks.
