The Surge gets a free trial on all available platforms

Developer Deck13 is hoping to entice more players into trying out its recently launched sci-fi action-RPG title The Surge with a free trial that is available now on all platforms.

According to a press release from Deck13, the free trial can be downloaded and played on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 (the PS4 version even includes the PS4 Pro enhancements for those who own the newer iteration of Sony’s console). It’s not clear exactly how long the free trial lasts, but the press release says that the trial includes “hours of unlocked content.” Best of all, if a player decides to keep playing the full version after sampling the free trial, they’ll retain any progress they made.

The Surge was released this past May and received a mostly positive reception upon launch. A new demo featuring a variety of streamers and their uncensored reactions to The Surge’s visceral combat can be watched below (strong language warning).
