The Surge 2 Trailer Shows Gorgeous Scenery and Brutal Dismemberment

The first look at The Surge 2's gameplay shows a blend of high-octane combat, disturbing bosses, and brutal executions in a fast-paced new trailer.

Focus Home Interactive’s Gamescom 2018 showcase included our first glimpse into The Surge 2’s gameplay, packing a lot of intense action into its swift and brutal 52-second trailer.

The trailer begins with deep blue skies and lush greenery as the camera pans through a forest setting. However, the subtlety doesn’t last long. A brief close-up of a savage bladed weapon gives way to a wave of carnage. In the blink of an eye, the trailer¬†jumps headlong into combat. The game’s fast swooping motions carry weight with them as enemies are stabbed and hacked apart in brutal slow-motion kills-shots.

We are also treated to one of the larger opponents that players will be up against. A garden statue seems relatively harmless until its limbs pop out of place at the joints and it advances towards you. It then gives chase through the forest firing red-hot beams that tear through fallen tree trunks in its path as if they were nothing.

The sequel to last year’s runaway hit The Surge 2 is set for release in 2019 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
