In the second game of Deck 13’s apocalyptic series The Surge, we will find ourselves in a destructive dystopia. In fact, in this new story trailer for The Surge 2 that publisher Focus Home Interactive released, we can really start to get a sense of things. We had some ideas thanks to the combat trailer and an awesome breakdown of how we will build our own gear, but now we can really see that life on earth as we know it is coming to an end.
Our story begins after the deFrag nanovirus strikes following the launch of a Utopia rocket. As a lone warrior in Jericho city, you must fight through hell, high water, and amnesia to discover the truth about the virus, the city, and much more. As the nano-cultists run rampant through the streets, harvesting everything they can from the environment for their mysterious ends, the government forces of A.I.D attempt to maintain a stranglehold on the city with violent means. Through the chaos, Athena, a girl with whom you have a special connection, leads you through the streets to a destination unknown.
It seems that the story has become more mysterious and expansive with this sequel. There is a lot to uncover and even more at stake. We won’t truly know whats going on or how we can make a positive change until the game releases on September 24th for Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. At least it’s still not too late to get the bonuses from the pre-order. Are you going to be ready to take on the strange dystopia next week?
