The Surge developer Deck13 has shown off the first gameplay trailer for its upcoming action-RPG Atlas Fallen, which definitely isn’t the name of a new Gerard Butler movie. While the first CGI-animated reveal trailer for the game showed off a world of humans, fallen gods, and deadly robots buried beneath the sands of time, there was also a hint of Bloodborne inspiration with transforming weapons that were teased.
Atlas Fallen is set in a world where you’ll have to liberate mankind from the oppression of cruel gods, and as seen in the gameplay, that involves a lot of hacking, slashing, and deft dodging in a semi-open world where you use the sandy environment to your advantage.
Another interesting feature is the option to create a custom playstyle by taking the essence of your enemies and using them to tailor a unique system for your character. The big difference here is that, unlike its work on The Surge series, Deck13 has confirmed that the game isn’t a souls-like and leans more into the power fantasy of the action-RPG genre, similar to Devil May Cry.
Scheduled for release on May 16 and published by Focus Interactive, Atlas Fallen will release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on May 16. Preordering will unlock a few extras, as you’ll be able to equip new armor and gauntlet skins as part of the Ruin Rising Pack.
