Deck13’s Dark Souls-like RPG The Surge is getting a sequel. Announced today at publisher Focus Home Interactive’s annual press event, The Surge 2 aims to expand on its predecessor’s formula while maintaining the same feel that fans love (via Eurogamer).
All that’s been released so far is a piece of artwork (seen above) and an official description of the game which can be read below.
“The Surge 2 keeps what fans and critics loved about the original – hardcore combat utilising a unique, dynamic limb targeting system and deep character progression – while also expanding greatly upon the formula.
“The Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine. Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system.
“In addition, more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones give players a vast arsenal to build their character with, in their fight against the array of diverse new enemies and bosses.”
The Surge 2 is set to release next year for consoles and PC.
