This is definitely-not-a-Dark-Souls-clone made by the same team that made that Dark Souls clone Lords of the Fallen a while back. I was wondering about the game recently and it just so happens they have a new gameplay video out.
It looks okay. They still have that lumbering animation and lurching screen sway that made Lords of the Fallen feel unique, though ultimately a bit awkward and shallow.
I’m not expecting an amazing game here. I’ll probably still play through it one time so I can smash robots with a giant futuristic pipe wrench. (It’s good training for the coming AI-driven apocalypse here in the real world.)
I’ll definitely wait until it goes on sale. The first game had a lot of technical flaws at release. By the time they fixed them, it was already in the digital bargain bin. I figure they owe me.
The Surge should be out sometime in 2017.
