Publisher Focus Home Interactive today revealed that it will once again partner with developer Deck 13 for The Surge 2, a follow up to 2017’s Souls-like action RPG.
According to the publisher, development for The Surge 2 is already underway, with a 2019 release planned for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
The sequel to last years action-RPG will retain the hardcore combat, dynamic limb targeting system and character progression, though it will expand on the mentioned features. Furthermore, The Surge 2 will depart its predecessor’s previous setting of the CREO corporation for a sprawling, devastated city with a larger and more ambitious level design, thanks to Deck 13’s upgraded and improved FLEDGE engine.
Combat will be more brutal and tactical than ever before thanks to an expanded limb targeting system while new abilities, weapons, implants and drones offer players an array of tools with which to build up their character in order to take on new diverse enemies and bosses.
Focus Home Interactive promises to share more information for The Surge 2 when it hosts its annual event – Le What’s Next de Focus – in Paris today and tomorrow.
