Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 Team Up Again for The Surge 2

By Ashley Woodcock, 10 months ago
Publisher Focus Home Interactive and developer Deck13 put out The Surge in May last year, the team's Dark Souls-like action-RPG that received respectable ratings across the board. The two have teamed up again to announce The Surge 2.

If you enjoyed the original then you're going to continue your love for the franchise. The second instalment will also be packed with hardcore combat, the limb targeting system, character progression, and more as Deck13 expands on the formula. A brand new environment will be on offer as the story will take place in a "devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design" thanks to the developer's upgraded and improved engine. The combat will be even more brutal, gory and tactical than before as the limb targeting system has been expanded, plus there will be more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones for the player to pick and choose as they build and upgrade their character to take on the new variety of enemies and bosses.


More details on The Surge 2 will be revealed at "Le What's Next de Focus", a yearly press event put together by the French publisher in Paris, so we should have more to share very soon. The game itself is scheduled for a 2019 release on the Xbox One.
