Warren is the protagonist of The Surge. Warren begins as a recent hire for CREO, a company with resolve to try to reverse the global effects of climate change. As a worker, he would be given a Rig in order to complete tasks as a Heavy Operator (with the RHINO gear) or a Field Technician (with the LYNX gear). However, things turn for the worse with the Rig and Neural Implant installation, causing Warren to pass out from the pain. Upon waking up after being dumped outside, Warren finds the CREO factory in ruins and littered with drones, deranged workers, and other machines. In order to survive and find out the truth, Warren will need to make use of Weapons, Armor, Implants, and Drone Modules to take down Enemies, harvesting their gear and components for his own use. Warren will also use Tech Scraps in order to both improve his Rig's core power as well as his weapons and armor.
It's the guy from Fallout 4
Was warren some sort of war veteran or something
i am so convinced that Warren is truly an archon of terror. he caused all of this
This gameplay feels as simulation of world on computer. Things that count towards it: protocol terminated message when warren dies, everyone dissapears on death, audiolog that states that another person did same thing as warren and then got all her augs rejected and blinded on left eye again, same as happens to warren at the end in one ending... I may be speculating but this needs more investigation
So, aside from being as generic as you can get with a protagonist, I kinda enjoy that Warren isn't grim and gritty and angsty. I mean, it's the incipient apocalypse, and he's just happy he can walk. He's a glass half-full kinda guy, which is kinda rare these days in generic white-guy protagonists.
For how bland he may seems he is still kinda diverse form many other characters in videos, because he start off the game by being physically handicapped.
Alright! Another damn white male with a serious look on his *****ing face. At least let me pick a different skin tone!
He is so bland that I was wondering if there was something wrong with my copy of the game.
