Brutal Combat in The Surge Explored in New Behind-the-Scenes Video

Brutal combat is definitely something that The Surge has in spades. Whether it’s taking out an enemy with a chainsaw or hacking off a body part, the game showcases hardcore fights.

Brutal combat explored

In a new behind-the-scenes trailer today, the Deck13 team discusses the ins and outs of the combat system as well as the sci-fi setting of the game.

The sci-fi setting lends itself to the combat system that designers envisioned from the start. The Surge features a healthy dose of relevant real-world issues such as environmental destruction and the misuse of technology. It’s a setting that invites exploration and infiltration to discover well-hidden secrets. Along the way, players will fight through crazed employees of “the corporation” as well as robots gone wild.

The unique system of “limb-based targeting” also shines in The Surge. Not only can players exploit weaknesses in opponents, but they can hack off body (technically suit) parts to take home for themselves.

It’s a fantastic look at how the game was developed as well as how the team’s vision became reality.

The Surge is due out on May 16th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, XBox One and PC. You can learn more on the official site.
