The Surge is an upcoming action RPG from developer Deck 13. It is set in a dystopian future where Earth is dying due to the pollution mankind has caused. Machines have evolved not to a Skynet level, but far enough to cause mass unemployment amongst overpopulated cities. Living is a chore, not only because of the lack of work but the polluted environment is more than our bodies can handle. To go about our daily lives, many are augmented with exoskeletons. Stronger humans, massive robots and worldwide poverty have led to violence the likes of which the world has never seen. The Surge features combat, both hand-to-hand and robotic where you literally tear enemies apart. Work your way through lies, disease and ever looming threat of violent death as you collect loot and craft weapons. Maybe you will live long enough to discover the secret behind The Surge. Even if you do, what can be done to reverse these events is at yet unknown. The Surge is in development for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
