Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 have wasted no time with the next iteration of their popular action role-playing franchise, The Surge. After the success of The Surge, which released in May 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, The Surge 2 is already in the works, with a release date planned for 2019 on consoles and PC.
The Surge 2 keeps what fans and critics loved about the original – hardcore combat utilizing a unique, dynamic, limb-targeting system and deep character progression, while also expanding greatly upon the formula. The Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine. Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system. In addition, more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones give players a vast arsenal to build their character with, in their fight against the array of diverse new enemies and bosses.
