With The Surge now gold and on track
for release next month, a
new combat trailer is
online as part of what may be a surge of details on this hardcore action/RPG.
The clip comes with this explanation of what it shows:
Trailer challenges you to survive the deadly CREO facility, making use of The
Surge’s fast, technical combat system.
As showcased in the Target, Loot & Equip Trailer, make use of vertical and
horizontal attacks, as well as strike power, to target and dismember specific
limbs, so you can loot what you cut. Looting upgrades for your exo-suit is key
to progression, and surviving challenging physically based combat situations is
a matter of skill.
Positioning and speed are vital, so make use of your exo-enhanced dodges,
blocks, ducks and jumps to avoid attacks while managing stamina, ensuring you’re
always in the right place to strike the limb you want, or to avoid a potentially
damning blow. The rules of combat apply to both you, and your enemy : get hit in
an unarmored limb, and you’ll go down faster. Take advantage of the enemy’s
weaknesses while balancing your own, and you’ll walk away with his strengths.
But you’re not alone. Throughout your journey you’ll be assisted by your
industrial drone, with abilities once used for CREO’s industrial needs now
manipulated into a fighting machine. Shield yourself, or Burn, knock down, pull,
and blast enemies at your will as you continue to fight in melee.
