Will The Surge 2 perform better if you run it on the most powerful console hardware? We can confirm….YES! The latest trailer from developer Deck13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive shows off the improved graphical fidelity and framerate of The Surge 2 on PS4 Pro and XBox One X.
The game will run in 4K on both machines…however, not with a 60FPS framerate (it will be locked at 30FPS, but it will be pretty). If you must have 60FPS, it runs on that speed on both consoles, but only at 1080p. Neither of these can top the PC version…we’re sure with enough tweaks and expensive silicon you could get it running at 128K at 9,000 frames a second, but that’s all theoretical.
Read on for what we know to date about The Surge 2 as well as its latest trailer, “Symphony of Violence.” The game releases September 24 for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC.
Like most AAA games these days, The Surge 2 takes place in the apocalypse. 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.
If you preorder The Surge 2, you will get the URBN Gear Pack DLC, which includes an armor set, two weapons, one drone, one module, and a bonus online message icon. You can also preorder The Surge 2 Limited Edition which has an exclusive lenticular cover, an 8-page comic book, a massive double-side poster and three lithographs.
