Deck13’s upcoming hardcore action RPG, The Surge, has gone gold publisher Focus Home Interactive has announced. To celebrate, they’ve detailed the game’s improvements on PS4 Pro.

The Surge has gone gold everyone, that means it’s ready to go, ready to be printed onto disc, and ready to be thrown into players’ hands. The game is set to launch for retail and digital download on May 16, and can be pre-ordered now.

For those with a PS4 Pro, you’ll be able to make the most of a free update that’ll be available on Day 1 that’ll allow players to play in Dynamic 4K at 30fps, or 1080p at 60fps. A second update will also launch at a later date allowing players to activate HDR.

The Surge has been a long-time coming. Having been announced in August 2015, players have been keen to hear more about this hardcore action-RPG. With a full reveal at E3 2016 what we saw was a game which could compete with the difficulty and skill-based Dark Souls games, yet in a more modern setting.

Here’s hoping we’ve not set our sights too high.
