The Surge was a refreshing, yet frustrating, take on the “Dark Souls… but not” genre. Featuring a futuristic world, robotic exoskeletons and crazy machines that wanted you dead, while allowing you to rip and tear your way through them to power yourself up. In other words – we liked it alot.
Now Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive have announced the next chapter of The Surge coming in 2019. The team promises to keep what fans and critics loved about the original while expanding with a new environment: a devasted city with a larger and more ambitious level design, more tactical and brutal combat with an expanded limb targeting system, as well as more weapons, abilities, implants and drones.
The Surge 2 is set for consoles and PC in 2019, we’re likely to hear more about the title soon.
