Source: Introducing the new surf game in Microsoft Edge - Microsoft Edge Blog

Starting with build 83.0.478.37, users can now play a surfing-themed game in the new Microsoft Edge when they’re offline or by navigating to edge://surf . The game, which has been available for Insiders since late February, is now available for everyone to play in the latest Stable channel release.

Inspired by the classic Windows game SkiFree, the 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.

An early version of the surf game originally debuted in November as part of a special Easter Egg. Insiders followed a series of cryptic hints and puzzles in the run-up to Microsoft Ignite 2019 which eventually led them to unlock the hidden surf game using Collections. Upon reaching the end of the game, Insiders were treated to the world’s first look at the new icon for Microsoft Edge—two days before the official reveal.

Upon the conclusion of the Easter Egg, the number one request from Insiders was to turn the surfing game into an endless runner as the permanent “offline game” for Microsoft Edge. The team took this feedback to heart and has spent the last few months polishing edge://surf and adding new gameplay features and improvements, including support for accessibility features like high contrast, screen readers, and even the Xbox Adaptive Controller. Here’s a look at what’s included:
  • Let’s surf: Endless mode
  • Time trial mode
  • Zig zag mode
  • Play with keyboard, mouse, touch, or gamepad
  • Personal high scores
  • High visibility mode
  • Reduced speed mode
  • And much more!
The final release of edge://surf has many changes based directly on user feedback from the Easter Egg version, including an enhanced user experience, numerous gameplay improvements (such as smarter enemy logic) and bug fixes, and much more. Who knows? There might even be a few secrets just waiting to be found.

Thanks again to our incredible community that made this possible. Happy surfing!
