Dig the hardcore RPG genre? Then give Deck13’s The Surge a try, running at a discounted price for Gold users on the Microsoft store.
The Surge is set in a dystopian future, whereby AI has become progressively intelligent, forcing workers in overpopulated cities to find blue-collar work in the suburbs. You awake in an exosuit as a robot tries to pry your body from the mechanical framework. Critic scores have mostly been above average, praising the game for its innovative take on the Souls-esque genre while the negative reviews mostly criticize the fluctuations in difficulty and occasionally repetitive gameplay.
‘Welcome to CREO, a futuristic corporate complex dedicated to the development of tomorrow’s most cutting-edge technology. After a catastrophic accident knocks you unconscious during your first day on the job, you awake in a destroyed section of the facility surrounded by malfunctioning machines and robots gone haywire.
Fitted with a heavy-grade exoskeleton and foraging whatever weapons you can find, you’ll need to find your way out of the industrial mega-complex, tackling vicious enemies, hazardous environments and colossal bosses.
