The team at Deck13, who worked with CI Games on Lords of the Fallen, have revealed a bit more information on The Surge, their next project. It's an action RPG set on a future Earth that's nearing the end of its life.

Cities are overpopulated, diseases and environmental disasters ravage the planet, and everything basically just sucks for everyone.

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.

Deck13, the studio behind the enjoyable if derivative fantasy hack and slasher Lords of the Fallen (basically Dark Souls with an angry bald man), is developing a new, sci-fi RPG called The Surge, to be published by Focus Home Interactive. The publisher is bringing the game to Gamescom next month, so expect to get the full scoop on it then.

For now, we know it's described as a "visceral, hardcore RPG with innovative new combat mechanics". Which, admittedly, is not a lot to go on.
