The original The Surge came right out of left field as a sci-fi Souls-like and impressed enough to put developer Deck13 on the map, allowing the studio to continue building up a franchise with a greenlit sequel which we must add, is looking incredibly impressive.
Today Focus Home Interactive and the devs have dropped an impressive trailer highlighting the game's intense combat, its visual sheen and its equally impressive roster of enemies.
In The Surge 2 you are thrust into Jericho City, a dystopian sci-fi megacity under quarantine, where several factions vie for dominance over the various districts. In this urban jungle, you will be hunted by everything from religious cultists to nanomonstrosities, so you must embrace the oldest law known to humankind – evolve to survive. When faced with an enemy, target specific parts of their body and slice off tech you need to upgrade your exo-rig.
The combat is intense. With 80 weapons to choose from, a directional parry system, dodge mechanics, drones and a huge range of brutal execution moves, you can approach combat in the way that suits your playstyle. Charge in and pound your enemies into submission with punching gloves or sting like a bee using the spear.
The Surge 2 rocks PlayStation 4 and Xbox One this September 24. Watch the new combat trailer embedded below.
