The Surge 2

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

Additionally, the company announced that the PC version of the original The Surge is available to play for free on Steam until August 29. The game and its DLCs can be purchased at up to 75 percent off until August 29.

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

The Surge 2 brings hardcore action-RPG combat to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 24—less than a month to go! Depth, challenge, and choice of playstyle define the combat in The Surge 2, highlighted by Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive in today’s Combat Trailer.

In The Surge 2 you are thrust into Jericho City, a dystopian sci-fi megacity under quarantine, where several factions vie for dominance over the various districts. In this urban jungle, you will be hunted by everything from religious cultists to nanomonstrosities, so you must embrace the oldest law known to humankind – evolve to survive. When faced with an enemy, target specific parts of their body and slice off tech you need to upgrade your exo-rig.

The combat is intense. With 80 weapons to choose from, a directional parry system, dodge mechanics, drones, and a huge range of brutal execution moves, you can approach combat in the way that suits your playstyle. Charge in and pound your enemies into submission with punching gloves or sting like a bee using the spear.

The Surge 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on September 24.
