One of my favorite games last year was a little known game called, The Surge. It had solid gameplay, high difficulty, and plenty of challenges. I enjoyed it because it was just so much fun and there was just so many different ways to play it thanks to the different armor sets you could get and how it affected your play style. With that said, I was excited to see that Focus Home Interactive and Deck 13 will be partnering up again to bring us The Surge 2, planned for a 2019 release.
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.
There are no trailers out yet but as soon as they release one, we’ll get it up.
