Developer Deck 13’s sci-fi Soulslike game from 2017 is getting a sequel soon. In a Facebook post from the official Surge profile, the developer announced that The Surge 2, promises a “larger and more ambitious level design, more brutal combat, and an expanded limb-targeting system.”
Furthermore, Deck 13 also revealed that the sequel will also introduce a bigger arsenal of weapons, abilities, implants, and drones to aid players in defeating new and improved enemies and bosses. The Surge 2 will also retain some of the core elements of its predecessor, including the limb targeting system, that gives players the ability to aim for an enemy’s weak spot for loot based rewards.
The game will also be created using an upgraded engine that will allow Deck 13 to create a more diverse environment that will take the form of a city in ruins, that will introduce a bigger area for players to explore and a more challenging and ambitious level design. Besides the Facebook post, and the image posted above, Deck 13 did not go into detail on how the game will look like. However, it has been announced that Deck 13 will share more information on the game during the Focus Home Interactive’s annual “Le What’s Next De Focus” event, which will happen today and tomorrow. Hopefully, Deck 13 will release more images, or better yet, a preview trailer to really show players what to expect on the upcoming installment to The Surge franchise.
