A year on from its first gameplay demonstration, developer Deck13 took to Twitter earlier today to confirm the release date of Surge 2. The anticipated sequel will launch on Sept. 24 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Surge 2’s official announcement confirms a leak spotted yesterday over on the Australian Microsoft store by Wccftech, which also listed the below pre-order bonuses for those ready to sign-up straight away:
- Warren’s most iconic weapon from The Surge: the well-used Cutter
- The full-body URBN armor set
- The URBN Judgement Axe
- The URBN Skimmer Drone
- The Lootscan.exe Radar Module
- A unique online message icon
The Surge IP follows on from Deck13’s Lords of the Fallen, swapping fantasy for a unique sci-fi aesthetic that sets it apart from other Souls-like RPGs. Still, the first game did feel like a less accomplished version of FromSoftware’s iconic series, with decent combat held back by somewhat uninspired level design.
We’ve high hopes for the sequel title, though, which looked gorgeous at last year’s E3 gameplay reveal. Deck13 touts combat more “tactical than ever, with more advanced dodging, directional parrying, and unique AI behaviors” this time around.
