Sci-fi RPG The Surge 2 gets release date

Game hitting consoles and PC in September

Sci-fi action RPG The Surge 2 will be released worldwide on September 24, development studio Deck13 Interactive has announced.

Published by Focus Home Interactive, the follow-up to May 2017’s The Surge will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

The game was announced in February 2018, when Lords of the Fallen developer Deck13 said: “The Surge 2 keeps what fans and critics loved about the original – hardcore combat utilizing a unique, dynamic limb targeting system and deep character progression – while also expanding greatly upon the formula.

“Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system,” it added. “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 was well received by a number of critics upon its release, helping the title earn a low-70s score on all platforms on review aggregation site Metacritic.

The game was a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers in April 2019, and it was added to Xbox Game Pass last month.
