Combat in The Surge is dynamic and extremely challenging at times. Similar to Lords of the Fallen and Dark Souls, the game is in third person and will feature various sci-fi inspired Weapons and Armor that provides different stats. Players will be able to hack off the limbs of foes to acquire armour pieces to be used for themselves. 



  • Fast-paced, focused on dashes to dodge deadly attacks
  • Visceral, decisive "fatality" moves triggered by staggering or dismembering enemies
  • Stamina management is key. Stamina regeneration is affected by upgrades
  • Targeting a part of the enemy which is armored will deal less damage, but you will earn the opportunity to deal a finishing blow that will cut off the limb in-tact, allowing you to loot the spoils, gain blueprints, and tech-scrap used to level up your exoskeleton.
  • The Surge features vertical and horizontal attacks, which are used in combination with parry’s, ducks and jumps as well as a boosted dodge – courtesy of your exoskeleton – culminating in swift, snappy, precise combat situations

      Blocking only works if you have enough stamina, some attacks such as twin blade double arm cross are not blockable same with heavy duty vertical attacks. Stamina drain is related to how much dmg is delt to you. Funny how security can block everything you dish out tho.

        Can we get a description of damage types? Every weapon causes multiple different types of damage in the details, and they don't add up to the total damage either. Is there a benefit to weapons with increased elemental damage, crush, slash, or thrust?

          Here's my question... How does blocking actually work? Sometimes I do it perfectly and can do a little counterattack and other times I get rekt. I've read that it has to do with how long you've held the button, that if you're holding for longer than a second it doesn't work. Anybody tested it at all?
