German developer Deck 13 released new screenshots for upcoming action-RPG The Surge, displaying new enemies both human and mechanical. The images show players battling exo-suited humans and a much larger, heavily armed robotic foe.

The game will take place in a near-future, where life on earth is on its environmental downfall and international company CREO remains dedicated to repairing the atmosphere and aiding climate control. As the protagonist Warren, a new CREO applicant, your mechanical exo-suit may begin as a way to assist in heavy industrial labor, but as conflicts arise it becomes a modifiable weapon. 

Using a limb targeting system, players can attack and detach certain limbs in order to collect and craft upgrades for their own exo-suit. Enemies with less armor might be an easy target, but it will leave you with less materials to work with after their defeat. 

Deck 13 released its first screenshots for The Surge in February, as well as concept and environmental art. 

The Surge will be presented at E3 in Los Angeles this June, with the final release set for 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
