Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 have shared the launch trailer for their upcoming action RPG, The Surge 2. It will be released on September 24.
The Surge 2 is a sequel to sci-fi action RPG developed by Deck13. It was initially compared to the Souls series developed by From Software and considered as sci-fi Souls, but the game craved its own identity.
While the action-based combat system that is featured in The Surge 2 bears some resemblance to Souls, it is also a lot more dynamic with a limb-based dismemberment system allowing the players to target parts of the body of their enemies.
The launch trailer for The Surge 2 is full of such action-packed moments and you should be ready to see many dismemberments. The visuals of the game look great and the resolution and frame rate have been detailed for PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. The game will offer 60 FPS support on these two enhanced consoles.
Here is an overview of the game from the trailer description.
The Surge 2 presents a harsh, sci-fi, dystopian world to explore and survive. Create your own character and decide how to approach the hardcore melee combat, putting your reactions and RPG character-building skills to the test. Deep character progression and customization lets you decide how to equip yourself and handle enemies – with many additions over the original game, including challenging but rewarding directional parries and companion drones with dozens of uses. Limb-targeting and executions return new and improved, so get ready to target, loot, and equip everything you see on your enemies.
The game will launch on September 24, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The release date for it was leaked ahead of the official announced and later confirmed to be accurate by the developers. There will be some pre-order bonuses available as well.
