To my gaming brethren, it might be silly for me to ask if you like violence. However, I wonder how many like the ultra-violence. If you like breaking bones, smashing limbs and leaving your enemies as “somewhat less” than how they started, you might be ready. Last year, The Surge combined Blade Runner, Dark Souls and The Running Man into a visceral fight for survival. Kill not only to survive, but to upgrade and survive even longer. Deck13 Interactive is ready to take things to the next level as they announce The Surge 2.
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.
More information about The Surge 2 will be unveiled at Le What’s Next de Focus – February 7-8, the yearly press event organized by the French publisher in Paris. Deck13 will talk more about their new title to the international press, so stay tuned. To quote a living legend, “I'm afraid I've got some bad news for you.” The Surge 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not until 2019.
