Deck 13 has released a new trailer for their upcoming hardcore action-RPG The Surge that focuses on the game’s combat.
The Surge combat trailer focuses on what a player will need to do in order to survive. Learning to pair vertical and horizontal attacks with strike power to dismember specific limbs can mean the difference between a swift death or survival. Not only does dismembering you opponents help increase you odds of survival, but you can also loot the objects/limbs you successfully dissected. This means the more limbs you cut off the more objects there are to pilfer.
Positioning and speed form another important part of the game’s combat. Players will need to avoid enemy blows by using dodges. Luckily, players will not go into combat alone as they will be assisted by their trusty industrial drone who can shield them against damage. The game reminds me a lot of the one-on-one combat you would find in a Dark Souls game, and that’s not a bad thing.
