You may remember Lords of the Fallen as a clone of From Software’s Souls series. Well, the creators of the game, Deck13, are at it again…only not quite. Their new title, the Surge, is expected to be similar to Lords of the Fallen (and therefore similar to the Souls series), but building on the foundation they started with their previous title to make something more unique.

Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive sent out the first press release this morning for The Surge, which includes our first story and gameplay details. You can read  the description of the game just below:

Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.

As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.

The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.

Look for the Surge to tentatively drop in 2017 for PC, Playstation 4, and XBox One. Stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for further updates on The Surge as we have them.
