- COMBAT AND TARGETING. Combat is challenging and unforgiving. You’ll need to carefully study your enemies, rather than blindly rushing and wildly swinging your weapon without focus. Study their attack patterns and weaknesses, then strike hard and fast – even the weakest of enemies can be deadly!
- LOOTING AND CRAFTING. Explore CREO’s many varied environments, both inside and out, and use your implants to target specific enemy ligaments to gain crafting resources. Use these to improve your equipment, upgrading your weapons and armor throughout CREO’s scattered safe-rooms.
- GETTING STRONGER. The further you delve into CREO and the longer you survive, the more tech scrap (XP) you’ll gain from defeating enemies and bosses. Die, and the metal scrap farmed to that point will be dropped where you fall. You will have to fight your way back to regain it, or lose it forever.
- XO-RIG AND IMPLANTS. As an employee of CREO, you are fitted with an exo-suit intended for industrial work inside the CREO complex. This base rig can be enhanced with light, medium, or heavy attachments, allowing you to specialize into your chosen playstyle. Granted super-human strength, you are able to wield huge weapons and inflict massive damage onto your enemies, as well as survive dangerous environmental hazards such as toxic spills.

The Surge Review
The Surge is designed in the challenging Role-playing game style of the Rise of the Robots and Souls series of games. The game takes place in a dystopian future where mankind has exhausted the world's resources, leading to strained social service and environmental diseases. It paints a grim portrait of the future where the evolution of technology in relation to society and the environment has led to a decadent era for humanity. The gameplay involves players using an exoskeleton to battle enemies. The exoskeleton can be customized through the game using "modular upgrades". The combat allows players to target different body parts of enemies, as well as utilize finishing moves often ending in dismemberment in bullet time fashion. Equip, upgrade and craft new weapons and armors sliced from enemies, and make yourself stronger through a fresh take on leveling-up.
