New Trailer for Sci-fi ARPG The Surge Focuses on Loot and Gear

Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 have shared a new trailer for The Surge, their upcoming sci-fi action RPG.

Featured above, the new trailer focuses on the loot and equipment systems within the game, as they’ll be integral to your experience playing.

Here’s a brief overview of what to expect from gear and loot in the game, via Focus Home:

The Surge gives players greater control over what they loot from defeated enemies. During combat, they can individually target specific body parts, which they can damage with a wise combination of vertical and horizontal attacks to then slice off – and what part they dismember directly determines what piece of equipment they loot. When approaching an enemy, players will make a difficult decision: do they target an unarmored body part for a shorter fight, or risk a lengthier, damaging battle for a chance at slicing off a shiny new piece of equipment?

Balancing risk and reward is core to succeeding in The Surge, and bold players will be rewarded well! The toughest enemies drop the most powerful weapons and armor, so if you see a piece of equipment you like the look of, you’ll need to fight hard for it…or die trying.

The Surge is launching across PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 16th.
