The Surge might feel familiar to players of games like Dark Souls, but it has enough differences that you can’t expect success by simply copying your strategies over from those games. If this is your first hardcore action RPG you might even feel overwhelmed with the relentless attacks of the game’s enemies.
We’ve put together a few tips after playing through The Surge, the kinds of tips we’d have liked on our first time through. Hopefully they make your journey a little bit smoother.
Remember to craft and upgrade gear
Targeting specific body parts during combat is essential for success in The Surge. It’s tempting to always attack unarmoured areas since they finish fights quickly, but relying too much on this (as I did for a while) will haunt you later on.
