The Surge 2 builds on everything the first game did: more limb chopping finishers, a bigger and more open map and many new parts to slot into your suit. In this new Surge 2 gameplay (captured on PC) Matthew talks you through the biggest and best changes in The Surge 2. Intrigued by The Surge 2 trailer? Why not try on some The Surge 2 PC gameplay for size. We spent an hour with the game a few weeks ago and got to test out new features like the directional block - setting up those wonderfully violent finishers - and seeing a fraction of the The Surge 2 map, which has a more open approach to level design. We also fight some living statues and then turn their weapons against the local scumbags. Which is fun.

In our Surge 2 demo we explore the park district, take on new soldier AI - and their cloaking devices - try out a range of spears, lances and axes (and the finishing moves they trigger) and get to take our new drone for a spin. We also got to interview Deck13, and offer some of their thoughts throughout the video. Annoying, the most enticing of The Surge 2’s new features won’t really ben seen until we can explore the whole map. You’ll be able to get The Surge PS4 and on Xbox One later in 2019, but we’re looking at the PC version, as we tend to do.

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...

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. 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.

Fratures
  • Hardcore, brutal melee combat
  • Face deadly foes and colossal bosses
  • Cut off parts of the enemy you want to loot
  • Rich character progression and customization

I really, really liked The Surge but that video did not convince me at all sadly.

The Surge 2’s bigger, better weapons, levels, enemies, and much more explained in the new Dev Gameplay Walkthrough

Today’s Dev Gameplay Walkthrough is narrated by Adam Hetenyi, Head of Game Design at Deck13 Interactive. See the massive new levels, the return of uncompromising and brutal combat, now as intense as ever, as well as brand new features like asynchronous multiplayer and drones.

Also shown off are the improved bosses of The Surge 2, inside new environments with stunning variety between the high walls of Jericho City and its various parks and suburbs. The new and enriched move sets combined with directional blocking alongside character customization, more weapons, more implants, and more armor sets mean your character is truly your own in The Surge 2.

Here, we meet our hero, and many of the inhabitants of Jericho City. Nano-cultists run rampant through the streets, harvesting everything they can from the environment for their mysterious ends. The government forces of A.I.D attempt to maintain a stranglehold on the city with violent means. All the while, Athena, a girl with whom you have a special connection, leads you through the streets to a destination unknown.

Deck13’s latest hardcore Action-RPG utilizes its signature limb-targeting system, allowing you to rip and tear equipment from your foes using brutal executions. Witness the weapons, enemies, and executions backed by Sharon Van Etten’s cover of ‘The End of the World’ in the Symphony of Violence Trailer, released today.
