Deck13’s upcoming hardcore Action-RPG The Surge comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on 16 May 2017. Today, the ‘Target, Loot and Equip’ Trailer highlights the game’s limb-slicing loot system in all its bloody, brutal glory.

The Surge empowers players by giving them control over what they loot from defeated enemies. Target specific body parts, before damaging them with a combination of vertical and horizontal attacks – the resulting dismembered part then determines what piece of equipment is looted: the schematic corresponding to the sliced armor part, salvaged materials for crafting the corresponding piece, or even the weapon wielded by the enemy! This means when approaching an enemy, players face 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 are 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 need to fight hard for it… or die trying.

The Surge is coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 16th 2017 – find out more about the game on the official website through this link.
