Usually when you think of hardcore action role-playing games (RPG), they take place in ancient worlds dominated by fantastic creatures where only the sword and shield see you through. While The Surge focuses on melee combat, the antagonists are technologically advanced and require you to understand their abilities rather than simply dodging and striking.
The game is made by the creators of Lords of the Fallen, but unlike the former's clunky combat, The Surge refines it in a variety of ways. The upcoming "The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented" expansion offers more opportunity to level up your character and acquire better gear. As expected, it takes place in a Wild West setting.
According to the developer, players will enter the bowels of the "CREO" facility where the game takes place, and explore an old and abandoned "Quality Assurance" lab created to push technology to its limits. Warren must face Dr. Rischboter's deadly test chambers that are torn straight out of a twisted Wild West show. You must fight through the doctor's training rooms and try modifying them yourself for increased rewards by combining modifiers.
The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented is expected to launch on October 2, 2018 on Xbox One and other platforms. It's unclear how much it'll cost. The "A Walk in the Park" expansion cost $14.99 so this might be priced similarly. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
