The Surge 2 coming next year to PC, PS4 and Xbox One


Sci-fi action RPG returns in 2019

Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive have announced they are once again teaming up to develop The Surge 2. The sequel to last Summer's challenging action adventure will be coming to PC and consoles in 2019.

In a press release, Focus spoke of how the game will be retaining its predecessor's hardcore combat, including its trademark limb-targeting system, while expanding the game's arsenal of weaponry, abilities, implants and drones. An upgraded game engine has allowed Deck13 to create an ambitious, sprawling cityscape to be explored.

The Surge launched last year to mixed reviews from critics and gamers, with various outlets citing its Souls-esque difficulty setting as either a positive or a negative aspect of the title, depending on your taste for masochistic action. The consensus was that although the game had some interesting aspects and a decent story concept, it never quite lived up to its own potential.

Focus Home Interactive are currently holding a five-day press event in Paris, so we can probably expect to hear more information regarding this new project over the next few days. The Surge 2 is scheduled for launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC in 2019.
