The Surge Has Gone Gold and Unveils More About Its PlayStation 4 Pro Updates
Focus Home Interactive is pleased to announce that The Surge, the hardcore action-RPG developed by Deck13 has officially gone gold on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The game will release for retail and download on May 16 and is already available for pre-order on consoles and PC.
We are also happy to unveil more information about the PS4 Pro updates for The Surge. The first free update will be available at the release of the game, and will allow players to either play in Dynamic 4K at 30fps or in 1080p at 60fps. A second update will be available a bit later after release, allowing players to activate the HDR option.
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.
- Tight, visceral hardcore action RPG combat
- Unique targeting, dismemberment and level up systems
- Explore a dystopian world full of mystery
- Battle an array of huge, fearsome bosses
- Loot, craft, and upgrade new weapons and armors
The Surge comes May 16th, and is available to pre-order now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and PC.
