New story trailer sheds light on The Surge 2

The Surge 2

Developer Deck 13 has released a new story trailer which offers new insight into its upcoming action-RPG The Surge 2.

Deck 13 described said that the trailer shows the start of The Surge 2’s story: “Here, we meet our hero, and many of the inhabitants of Jericho City. Nano-cultists run rampant through the streets, harvesting everything they can from the environment for their mysterious ends. The government forces of A.I.D attempt to maintain a stranglehold on the city with violent means. All the while, Athena, a girl with whom you have a special connection, leads you through the streets to a destination unknown.”

Deck 13 also filled in The Surge 2’s overarching premise: “In The Surge 2 on September 24, life on earth as we know it is coming to an end. Deck13’s latest hardcore action-RPG entry begins after the deFrag nanovirus strikes following the launch of a Utopia rocket. In Jericho City, one lone warrior — you — must fight through hell, high water, and amnesia to discover the truth about the virus, the city, and much more.”

Additionally, the Frankfurt-based developer offered some hints as to how The Surge 2’s gameplay will develop in comparison of that of its predecessor, 2017’s The Surge: “This mystery accompanies gameplay that refines and enhances the Surge formula, bringing new weapons, new gadgets, enhanced ranged combat, additional implants, and much more. Dismemberment and limb-targeting still form the backbone of how you fight, loot, and choose your loadout, but with more options than ever before.”

The Surge 2 is due to be released on September 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. To find out more, visit its official website.
