Today, very early on Deck 13 announced on their social media accounts that they are renewing the partnership with Focus Home Interactive for development of The Surge 2. The Surge was a futuristic action adventure game in the “Souls Like” category where death is another hurdle to get over in the journey of the game.
The Surge had a somewhat original take on the ever popular genre where you would have to target enemy limbs to cause extra damage if they were unarmoured, or if they did contain armour you could focus for resources to craft your own armour from the drop.
The setting was a bleak industrial theme that would not have looked out of place in an Alien film at some parts. I for one am happy to see the game turn into a series with this announcement. Deck 13 originally released the game Lords of the Fallen which was not met with the same reception as The Surge.
So with the announcement of a 2019 release it would be safe to assume the game is being released on the same engine as the original game with some development underway already.
I know I for one, am definitely looking forward to this release as I was a fan of the original game.
Did you play the original game at all? Let us know what you thought of the game or what you look forward to seeing in this sequel.
