The Surge 2 is an upcoming Bloodborne-like game which is more accessible than the PlayStation 4 exclusive. Developer Deck 13 and publisher Focus Home Interactive announced the renewal of their partnership and the development of The Surge 2 over a year ago. According to the companies, the game keeps the hardcore limb-targeting combat system, but greatly enhances the environments.
The Surge took place in claustrophobic corridors, and even the theme park and Wild West expansions didn't feel as open as they should have. Luckily, the sequel addresses that issue. The Surge 2 transports players to a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design. The teams noted that combat is also more brutal than ever, with even more options in the limb-targeting system. As expected, there will also be more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones. This should give you more freedom when it comes to choosing a playstyle that works because it's a difficult game.
Today, a new developer gameplay walkthrough was posted on the publisher's website. It shows off the improved bosses and new environments. There are new areas like parks and suburbs. Instead of a regular block function, The Surge 2 features directional blocking. This should add more depth to the combat because the original focused more on dodging.
On the way to Jericho City, your plane is shot down by a mysterious storm and crash-lands in the outskirts. Soldiers enforce martial law, robots are on a rampage, and an expanding nanostorm looms over the metropolis. In a bid to survive, you set out to explore the sprawling, devastated Jericho City. You'll fight ferocious threats in brutal, unforgiving combat, slashing and tearing the limbs off your opponents to steal valuable equipment that will make you stronger.
