Having been in development for what felt like a lifetime - it wasn't - The Surge finally arrived on Steam in the middle of May. Now that it's forever cemented as the Dark Souls of the sci-fi genre, we're to expect it'll have a long and fruitful life. Though it remains to be seen whether fans will talk about a mysterious ring for years to come.
In light of its success, we're ready and waiting for a string of updates to come our way. It's a successful game! Multiple outlets dished out favourable reviews and players all seem to enjoy bashing robots with other robots before stealing their limbs to bash more. That situation usually means additional support further down the line; so we're setting up another one of our tradition Patch Note pages to keep on top of whatever the future may hold.
The Surge - Patch 11
The Surge has come along in leaps and bounds since its release back in May, with thegetting high praise from us in our review and there's still a number of patches coming out for it too. The latest patch - this is the 11th update - has already been released for the consoles, but it's coming to the PC later this week.
The Surge Patch 11 fixes various issues and makes other minor tweaks, but doesn't add any new content this time round. Check out the full patch notes below:
The Surge - Patch 6
Did you even wonder why the MG Judge v2.0 would hit through walls? Well... it wasn't supposed to do that. How about the 'Drone Skill Ready' prompt appearing at the wrong time? Stuck in the fight with Rogue Process? All this - and a lot more - should now be fixed.
The Surge - Patch 5
Yes, you read that right! We've gone from The Surge's first major update to the fifth patch with nothing inbetween. The most notable feature? Probably a FOV slider; "Quake Pro" is still a valid answer to any question in life.
The Surge - First Major Update
An extension of the beta test branch update thrown up last week, The Surge gets its first official patch this week with plenty of changes to blocking, health injectors and more. You can now officially import your own music, too!
The Surge - Beta Update Branch 24/05/2017
The first update for The Surge comes as a beta client available for those willing to put it through its paces. Though there's no saying when this build will make it to the public, it's said to be out for feedback rather than testing.
