The Surge 2

Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 have released a gameplay overview trailer for The Surge 2.

“Fast-paced, tactical combat returns, with satisfying executions and meaningful choices for each encounter based on which equipment you wish to gather, equip, and upgrade,” reads the Focus Home Interactive press copy.

Here is an overview of the game, via Focus Home Interactive:

Overcome

On the way to Jericho City, your plane is shot down by a mysterious storm and crash-lands in the outskirts. You wake up weeks later in a derelict detention facility inside the city. Armor-clad soldiers enforce Martial Law, robots are on a rampage, and a dark, expanding nanostorm looms over the cityscape…

Survive

In a bid to survive, explore the sprawling, devastated city of Jericho. Fight its numerous, ferocious threats in brutal, unforgiving combat, slashing and tearing the limbs off your opponents to steal valuable equipment that will make you stronger—strong enough to face the most fearsome, imposing foes lurking in the city.

Upgrade

With an expanded arsenal of weapons, armors, abilities, implants, and drones to build your character, and a bigger, more varied and more ambitious world, The Surge 2 challenges you to survive and unravel its hidden secrets.

Key Features

  • Hardcore, brutal melee combat.
  • Face deadly foes and colossal bosses.
  • Cut off parts of the enemy you want to loot.
