The Surge resurges with a sequel.

The first game was pretty much Dark Souls, but in scienfe fiction. It had a fairly interesting limb-targeting mechanic and made light and heavy attacks matter more, than just as hitpoints removers, but otherwise it had a lukewarm reception. But the trailer looked interesting!

And that’s why the recent announcement of a sequel came as something of a surprise.

What’s new in the coming title? To quote the official release:

The Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated citywith [sic] larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine.

They also tease expanded limb targeting, new weapons, all the stuff you normally expect from a sequel. More information is bound to follow thanks to the broader reveal on Le What’s Next de Focus, but the last bit we know for now it that The Surge 2 is supposed to launch in 2019.
