First ‘Surf World Series’ Gameplay Video Washes Up

Climax Studios has released the first Surf World Series gameplay footage from the upcoming surfing video game for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

The last time I got into a surfing video game was way back in 1987 with California Games by Epyx for Commodore 64. The surfing competition in that game, while extremely simplistic, provided endless hours of fun trying to master perfect 10.0 scores.

Surf World Series takes a decidedly more realistic approach to the sport with today’s technologies backing it. The gameplay video below shows off a camera that switches perspective at different point in a run, goals to achieve and extended button holding to successfully pull off complex moves.

Look for Surf World Series to be available for purchase later this year. The gameplay trailer and official synopsis are below.

In Surf World Series, players will take to the waves to experience the thrill of pure arcade-style surfing. Ride monster waves from around the world at 5 legendary surfing destinations, including the sun-drenched beaches of Hawaii and the rugged coastlines of Portugal. Players can participate in 45 single player challenges, or carve up the competition online against up to 15 other players across 3 different multiplayer game modes.
