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.
If you'd like to see even more gameplay from The Surge 2, you can check out some previously-released footage here. The Surge 2 is currently set to launch on September 24. The game is Xbox One X Enhanced, with 4K resolution and HDR support.
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.

Review: NASCAR Heat 5 is still the complete package for fans
It's not long since NASCAR Heat 4 arrived, or at least, that's how it seems, with the new title arriving much earlier in the year than its predecessor. It's got some shiny new paint jobs and some neat new features, but many would be hard pressed to tell it apart from last year's game.
