Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 are to continue their partnership with the announcement of The Surge 2, which will be coming to consoles and PC sometime in 2019. As you might expect details are scarce but we do have one piece of artwork.
Here is the official announcement blurb, which boils down to “more of the same, but bigger and better.”
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 citywith 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.
We gave the original game 8/10 in our review saying “It takes the known tropes of being challenging and having progression dependent on learning attack patterns while adjusting your play style to accommodate, but it also has some fresh ideas that not only make perfect sense, but could shape future games.”
