‘The Surge 2’ celebrates successful reception with rousing Accolades Trailer

2 min read

The Surge 2, the brutal Action-RPG set in the chaotic city of Jericho, released last month to a wide critical acclaim on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and to celebrate, Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive are happy to present today’s limb-lopping, visceral Accolades Trailer, recapping the positive reception in typical Surge 2 style.

The Surge 2 drops you in the crumbled carcass of Jericho amid a DeFrag nanostorm take-over of the city, and throws crazed techno-cultists, nanomachine monstrosities, and more at you as you try to slash and dash your way out.

Create your own character and put your reactions and RPG character-building skills to the test. Deep character progression and customization let you decide how to equip yourself and handle enemies – with many additions over the original game and the return of its signature executions. Each fight is a desperate risk-versus-reward decision where you must utilize all the tools in your arsenal to survive, from a customizable combat drone, to game-changing implants, to a new directional parrying system and many more.

Carving your way through the intricately interlocking pathways of Jericho has clearly struck a chord with press and players alike and the team is delighted for you to return, as one reviewer put it, “time and time and time and time and time and time again”.

The Surge 2 is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

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. 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.
