Focus Home Interactive has announced that The Surge has gone gold ahead of its official release date of May 16th. If hardcore action-RPG’s with brutal melee combat is your thing, and if you haven’t already done so, you can preorder it here.
For the uninitiated, The Surge is an action RPG with heavy sci-fi leanings. It’s set in a world ravaged by war and global warming, although despite the damning evidence, it is unclear if Trump is still in charge. The developers at Deck13 state that it offers gamers a hardcore experience, with a focus on challenging, visceral melee combat. On top of that, they promise fresh fighting, looting and crafting, alongside a unique character progression system.
As you can see in the gameplay footage above, The Surge already looks amazing, but Focus Home Interactive just announced that a PS4 Pro update will be available on launch that will allow players to play in Dynamic 4k at 30fps or in 1080p at 60fps. Additionally, a second update will be available shortly after release, allowing players to activate the HDR option.
