Today Microsoft updated Edge to the stable channel version build 83.0.478.37, which now includes the Surf game built right into Edge that we reported on recently. While the game has been available to Edge Insiders since February, it is now available to everyone using Edge.
It works offline, has Xbox controller support and 3 modes to Play! Hit the download button below. Once you have downloaded Edge hit edge://surf to play the game.
Microsoft says the surf game was inspired by the classic Windows game SkiFree, “he surf game challenges players to ride through the water while avoiding islands, fellow surfers, and other obstacles.
Watch out for the kraken! Players can also collect hearts to extend their lives and boosts for a burst of speed. Surf as far as possible in an endless ocean, compete for the shortest time, or zig zag through as many gates as you can in a row. With three distinct game modes, players have a variety of ways to pass the time.”
Let’s surf: Endless mode
Surf as far as you can while avoiding obstacles and the kraken. You can switch modes via the game settings menu.
Time trial mode
Reach the end of the course as fast as you can! Collect coins to help you achieve an even shorter time. The course is always the same—can you find the shortest possible route? You can switch modes via the game settings menu.
Zig zag mode
Surf through as many gates as you can in a row! Your streak will reset if you miss a gate, but you can keep playing until your lives run out. You can switch modes via the game settings menu.
Play with keyboard, mouse, touch, or gamepad
Play your way with support for keyboard, mouse, touch, and gamepads, including Xbox, PlayStation, Switch Pro, and the Xbox Adaptive Controller. The game also supports gamepad haptic feedback (rumble) for a more immersive experience. Instructions for how to play, including the controls for each input method, can be found in the game’s settings menu.
Personal high scores
Each game mode keeps a record of your high score, and you’ll see a notification every time you set a new record. You can also reset your stats from the game settings menu.
High visibility mode
High visibility mode (accessible via the game settings menu) highlights the hit boxes around objects, making it easier to identify and avoid obstacles in the water.
Reduced speed mode
For users who prefer a more relaxed pace or need extra time to pull off those surfing moves, they can enable the new reduced speed mode (accessible via the game settings menu) to slow down the speed of the game.
