The Surge unleashes HDR support for PS4 and PS4 Pro

June 7th 2017

HDR support has arrived for Deck 13’s hardcore Action-RPG The Surge, on PS4 and PS4 Pro. Players can now enjoy more natural lighting, a wider color range and enhanced details at contrasted levels of brightness, creating more realistic and immersive visuals.

The Surge has already been lauded for its optimization and performance, with fast load times and impeccable framerates. PS4 Pro owners already have the option to play in Dynamic 4K at 30fps or in 1080p at 60fps. This support for Sony’s platforms continues even further today, as players on both PS4 and PS4 Pro can activate the option to play with HDR. Once HDR is activated within the base console settings, players will see the option in-game under video settings to toggle HDR on or off.

The update also introduces a number of gameplay tweaks to make your experience even smoother – read the full list here.

The Surge is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and PC. Visit the official website for more info.

Set in a heavily dystopian future as Earth nears the end of its life, those who remain in the overpopulated cities must work to survive as social programs become saturated by an ageing population and increasing environmental diseases. As the intelligence of technology incrementally increased over the years, many jobs for the human race had been made redundant, forcing Earth’s citizens to head out into the suburbs seeking labor, aided by exoskeletons to improve their efficiency. The world of The Surge offers a very grim vision of the future, where the evolution of our technology, our society and our relation with the environment led to a decadent state of the Human civilization. The Surge features innovative combat mechanics and an original character progression system based on modular upgrades gained through tight, visceral combat.

  • Tight, visceral hardcore action RPG combat
  • Unique targeting, dismemberment and level up systems
  • Explore a dystopian world full of mystery
  • Battle an array of huge, fearsome bosses
  • Loot, craft, and upgrade new weapons and armors
