Sci-fi Action RPG The Surge Goes Gold

Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 have announced The Surge has gone gold.

This means the game’s development and code is finalized and ready to be put onto game discs, for distribution. The sci-fi action-RPG is set for a release on May 16th across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

A day-one patch is planned for the game, however it’s not to fix broken things that should have been resolved pre-launch. Instead, the patch is for PlayStation 4 Pro owners, enabling them to play the game at dynamic 4K at 30FPS or in 1080p at 60FPS, followed by another patch that will add HDR support. No word on these graphical upgrades for PC or Xbox owners, however.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Focus Home:

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

    This game looks cool. I know a lot of pretentious souls fans will say it looks like trash but from software doesn’t put out enough games to keep me content so ill take a souls-like game anytime I can get it. I even like the different setting and style they used this time instead of how Lords of the fallen was going more dark souls look. It looks cool too the way you can harvest gear from enemies by picking which limb you want . I just hope the world is as detailed with secrets and everything the way souls are.

    Focus Home, huh? I guess it’s better to temper any expectations, then. They are known to me as the guys who “get close, but still miss”.

    My favorite publisher because they try all sorts of interesting things. However I know to take a wait and see approach with everything they do.

    This game would have to be fairly excellent for me to give a damn. Lords of the Fallen was a bit of a boring game that relied heavily on enemies with shields and armor, which really dragged down the overall pace of combat.

These days alone, I generated close to $36,000 until now with no more than my home computer as well as some spare time, despite that i have a fulltime 9 to 5 job. Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    They’re the publisher, not the developer.

    Also they published both Styx games and those are great.

    Pretentious souls fans is accurate. Not all of us are so ridiculously closed minded. I’ve been with Souls since the first Dark Souls, and love the series. It’s probably my favorite franchise and as a result, like you, I’ll take souls-like where I can get it. Lords of the Fallen had its issues, but still was a solid game. Yet, you ask most Souls fans and its pure trash. Hyperbole if you ask me. Honestly as awesome as the Souls games are, they do have issues.

    I really hope they grow up to be capable of doing the same shit EA does on a similar scale with a lower budget but in a more competent manner.
