In 2019 just about anything can be a Dark Souls
. For example, one could easily state, “This drink is the Dark Souls of drinks”. Not that you should do anything of the sort. Such is the power of From Software
’s challenging, brutal, and beloved action-RPG series. A sentiment that also applied to developer Deck13
's upcoming release of The Surge 2
With our full preview offering up 20 minutes of gameplay captured from the recent Closed Beta.
The Surge 2 isn’t so much a departure as it is a continuation of the above, improvements made here and there but the flow still all Souls, all day. That means heading out into branching environments, taking on enemies, collecting scrap metal, and hopefully taking it back to the nearest Medical Station. To save your progress and invest in an upgrade or two or perhaps a new piece of armour or a new weapon to wield.

Where The Surge 2 feels different, is with the pace of the game itself and the speed of the combat. It doesn’t enter the realm of button-mashing or arcade, but early on stuff like blocking is easier than the first outing with counters being able to be triggered with speed and finesse.
