No more trailers, no more previews, it’s time to go out and nab the real thing. The Surge 2, from developer Deck13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive, is here at last. Hit the streets of the apocalypse in this hardcore action RPG as your own customizable character, and confront hostiles with unique limb-targeting mechanics that make for a wide variety of combat styles.
The world is in a state of anarchy as looters, cultists, and even rogue robots roam the streets. The situation sounds bad — for a civilian. Good thing YOU have a high-tech exo-suit that can be upgraded from parts you scavenge in the environment or from slain enemies. Plus, you’re not technically alone — you have a Combat Drone following you that comes equipped with its own suite of weaponry.
Inside the high walls of Jericho City, trapped in a technological apocalypse that threatens to consume everyone within, our hero fights to survive and uncover the truth of the disaster. Cult members hopped up on drugs, nanomachines, looters, and security forces will try to stop you wherever you go while a mysterious girl leads you to parts unknown.
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.
The Surge 2 is available now for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
