Last May, developer Deck13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive partnered to release The Surge, a Souls-like sci-fi game, on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. I enjoyed the game, though there was definitely room for improvement. That’s why I was happy when Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive announced today that they have partnered up once again to create The Surge 2, which will release sometime in 2019.
According to the developers, The Surge 2 will keep the original game’s creative limb targeting system and detailed progression system, though these systems will feature some unspecified improvements. Where the game changes things up is the main environment. Instead of the large sprawling CREO factory of the original, The Surge 2 will take place in a devastated city.
The Surge 2′s level design is described as “larger and more ambitious” by its developers and will be supported by an improved engine. As is the case with most sequels, Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive promised more of what they delivered with the original. This means there are new abilities, weapons, implants, and drones, enemies, and bosses for players to fight.
Unfortunately, the only thing Focus Home Interactive released for the game is the image seen above. DualShockers will let you know when the game finally gets some screenshots, concept art, trailer, or more information in general.
The Surge 2 is currently poised to come to PC and unspecified consoles in 2019. If you want to try out the original game before the sequel comes out, you can check out its demo or The Surge: Complete Edition.
