[Gamescom 2019] Learn more about The Surge 2 with a Gameplay Overview Trailer
In the trailer from Gamescom, developer Deck 13 shows new gameplay footage for their upcoming action RPG sequel The Surge 2, which is set to launch next month on September 24th.
Fresh from Gamescom 2019 is another look at Focus Home Interactive and Deck13's upcoming action RPG sequel The Surge 2, which is set to launch later next month on September 24th. In the action RPG sequel players will once again find themselves equipped with an exo suit that can be expanded with a variety of upgrades, like the previous game. The suit increases your fighting power, the speed of your character, and your stamina. Three attributes that will be important not only in tough boss battles, but also in battles with smaller and weaker opponents. Because in The Surge 2, every fight is a challenge. Which is good for those looking for Dark Souls style action.
We also get to see the game world in the new overview trailer, which looks even more urban compared to its predecessor and likely exceeds anything seen in the previous game (including the Theme Park). The sightseeing soon stops as the player is thrust into a boss fight, and we get a taste of what the implants do, with stimulants granting active and passive bonuses that assist you in combat. The Surge 2 features over 80 weapons, divided into 9 weapon categories. These vary in attack speed, range and damage types, such as long range weapons and heavy close combat weapons.
Attack is not always the best defense, and in The Surge 2 you'll have to put your defensive skills to the test. Evading enemies can result in taking less damage, but you'll also be able to dodge high and low attacks by jumping or ducking. After dodging a successful counter-attack you'll be able to strike back and dish out some damage. Of course there's also the option to block attacks if you're not able to parry. Like in the previous game, drones will also be featured in the sequel. The gameplay trailer also shows us the useful technical "Pets" available in the game. Get a glimpse of the Gamescom action above while you wait for the launch next month.
The Surge 2 will be released on September 24th 2019. Pre-order your Steam Key online on Gamesplanet now and you'll receive the exclusive URBN Gear Pack, which contains bonus weapons and equipment for the game.
