Today Focus Home Interactive along with Deck13, developers of Lords of the Fallen, unveil our first look at the dystopian world of The Surge.
Set prior to the events of The Surge, we get a look at a press release revealing an industrial R&D project, providing insight into CREO, the mysterious manufacturing and Research & Development company that exists within the game, and their enigmatic CEO Jonah Guttenberg. Commissioned by a billionaire philanthropist, the project was designed primarily to reverse the effects of climate change on the planet, however it was just beginning to take shape as something entirely different; something that will have huge consequences for the world, and of course, the player.
Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases.
As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization.
