Focus Home Interactive has peeled back the curtain on its upcoming sci-fi game The Surge, which shows how developer Deck13 has created its so-called "Dark Souls in space." The clip has a lot of behind-the-scenes footage and info, including how you mo-cap an exosuit that doesn't technically exist.

The solution, as it turns out, involves arm-extenders, weights, and a patient mo-cap performer. Take a look at the clip below to see the game in action, and also get plenty of shots of enemies getting torn apart and repurposed. 

For a deeper look at The Surge, take a look at Reiner's recent Sci-Fi Weekly column on the game. He's spent an extensive amount of time playing it, and he's enjoyed what he's seen so far.

The Surge is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 16.
