Warren is the protagonist in The Surge . This game features no character customization so players will instead play as Warren, a worker in CREO, where things have gone terribly wrong. Upon waking up from a blackout on his first day at work, Warren finds his coworkers now deranged and sought to uncover the truth behind this incident. Warren will make use of Weapons, Armor and Implants to take down Enemies, and harvest their mech limbs to recover armour pieces for his own use. The game features an intuitive character progression system as the player levels up by using Tech Scraps to improve the players' core power to carry better gear and implants.
