Deck13, developer of the Dark Souls-like RPG Lords of The Fallen, have announced their newest projects, The Surge which will come to the PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2017.
The Surge is going to be set in a technological apocalypse which was the result of robots taking humans place in several jobs. This made humans move to a number of places where they can help each other out but this resulted in overpopulation, low hygiene and diseases. Deck13 explains the setting further:
“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 obvious goal of the game till now is to survive but we will sure see more details about The Surge soon.
