A shame a pretty good game and a nice spin on the Souls formula. I enjoyed it. I got it on PC though. Taking a quick look at steamspy data and they've sold 62,000 copies as of today though. Not sure what first week was.

That's way down compared to their previous game, Lords of the Fallen. Lords of the Fallen sold 115k first week at retail according to VGC.

Not quite "The Surge", name change to "The Decline".

Definately lacks in artstyle. Looks just tediously boring and uninspired compared to From Software games.

Such a shame, I'm really enjoying it after buying it in the Steam sale.
