Deck13 Reveal Details on New Sci-Fi Project ‘The Surge’
The developers of Lords of the Fallen gave Gamescom a closer look at their upcoming project. Being compared to games like Dead Space and films like Elysium, Deck13 is moving away from the fantasy-setting to deliver a sci-fi RPG experience with The Surge. Lords of the Fallen is well-known for its similarities to the Dark Souls franchise, so with The Surge, the company seems eager to create an entity more unique to their own.
The game is set far into the future where technology has both advanced tremendously and also brought upon the collapse of modern society. Players will take on the role of an everyday citizen who, outfitted with a reinforced exoskeleton, must scavenge for upgrades through the harvesting of cybernetic enemies’ limbs. Sounds quite a bit like Dead Space, though considerably less horror-themed. However the developers do still seem determined to bring a more unique flair to their project this time around. The game is currently set to release sometime in 2017 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC so we’ll just have to wait and see if they succeed.
