Focus Home Interactive has released a launch trailer for their upcoming RPG, The Surge 2. Read more on it from Focus Home themselves, below:
Hardcore Action-RPG The Surge 2’s blend of limb-chopping combat and post-apocalyptic exploration releases September 24 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Developer Deck13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive are delighted to deliver a sequel enjoyable by all – either for its incredible standalone story and gameplay, or how it builds and improves upon The Surge in every way. Check out today’s launch trailer for just a taste of the fast-paced action.
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.
Perhaps what’s most interesting about The Surge 2 is that it’s arguably one of the most successful games inspired by FromSoftware’s punishing style of RPG gameplay. Alongside NiOh, it’s one of the few that garnered a sizable audience without having FromSoft’s valuable name attached to it. Meanwhile, Lords of the Fallen is still waiting for a sequel.
The Surge 2 launches September 24th, for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
