The Surge 2 is the next game from developer Deck13 Interactive and publisher Focus Home Interactive. Building on the foundation that the first game provided, The Surge 2 is an action role-playing game with an emphasis on the word "action" as brutal combat is the focus here.
You can use different scavenged bladers and other tools to cut your enemies down, limb from limb, then upgrade yourself using their remains. There's a new trailer for The Surge 2 that shows this all in action.
Veterans of the first game will notice that the environment is completely different. Instead of making your way through a dangerous factory, the massive Jericho City is the nightmarish locale you'll have to survive. While cutting off limbs might be easier with small enemies, you're going to be facing towering machines and other extremely dangerous boss-type foes that might require some careful thinking and planning in order to bring down.

Enter a brutal world
The Surge 2 takes everything players loved about the first game and ramps it up to an eleven. With even more brutal combat, deadly foes and ways to upgrade, welcome to a horrifying future.
