Developers Deck13 have announced that the hardcore action RPG, The Surge, which mostly went under the radar, will be free to play on Steam for three days.
This comes a month before the launch of the sequel, The Surge 2, which takes you to Jericho City.

“The Surge is an action RPG set in a world ravaged by war and global warming. The game offers a hardcore experience, with a focus on challenging, visceral melee combat. It features fresh fighting, looting and crafting mechanics, alongside a unique character progression system. Fitted with your exo-suit and cybernetic implants, harness super-human strength to survive the CREO complex, a mega-corporation that set out to save the world,” says the overview on the official website.
“Enhance your exo-suit with near-endless combinations of armor and weapons, each with their own move sets as you slice your way through steel and flesh to loot, craft, and improve your rig. Salvage weapons and modular armour, by using the dynamic targeting system to attack and dismember limbs individually. From lighting rigs to heavy lifters, security armor to advanced, secretive technology – mix and match equipment to suit your playstyle and overcome the adversarial and environmental challenges that plague the malfunctioning complex.”
The game was released in 2017 and went under the radars of most, put away just as a “sci-fi Dark Souls“, while the game actually had some innovative mechanics and an engaging combat system. This is a great time to try it out if you haven’t touched it yet.
