German developer Deck13 Interactive, the studio behind 2014 action role-playing game Lords of the Fallen, is working on a new title, The Surge, publisher Focus Home Interactive confirmed today. The new game, which appears to have a science fiction bent, will make its debut at Gamescom in August.
The Surge is described as "a visceral hardcore RPG with innovative new combat mechanics," according to an announcement from Focus. Platforms and release date were not announced in Focus Home Interactive's newsletter.
Focus did release a piece of teaser art for The Surge, which features a cybernetically enhanced character wearing an exoskeleton and armed with what appears to be a futuristic, sawtoothed sword.
Developer Deck13 isn't working on the sequel to Lords of the Fallen, according to publisher CI Games. CI says it's working with other partners, some of which worked on the original Lords of the Fallen, on its successor.
Gamescom 2015 takes place Aug. 5-9 in Cologne, Germany.
