The Surge is getting a demo on Xbox One

Update: The Surge’s demo is now available on Xbox One. However, it appears to be suffering from a lot of problems including crashes and other bugs. Since the game is stable and polished, this is definitely surprising.

Third-person action title The Surge will be receiving a new demo next week for Xbox One, PC, and PS4 sometime next week, this according to publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck 13. The follow up to Lords of the Fallen is an action RPG that takes inspiration from the Dark Souls games, and features Warren, on his journey to battle against the megacorporation CREO.

There has not been much information about what the demo will include, but it’s likely that wherever you end up in the demo, you’ll be able carry the progress over to the full version of the title should you choose to purchase it.

While there’s no specific date for the demo, Deck 13 did give players a list of key features they can expect, including level up systems, boss battles, new weapons and armors and more.

We’ll be sure to update readers about a release when we get more information, but in the mean time you can check out our review of the game, and purchase the game here from the Xbox Store.
