It looks like The Surge 2 release date may have been revealed. A listing for the upcoming sequel from Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive has appeared on the Australian Xbox One Store.
The pre-order listing includes the game and some DLC called the URBN Gear Pack. The DLC won’t be sold separately (at this stage) and looks to be a pre-order bonus.
The DLC includes “Warren’s well-used Cutter from The Surge, the unique, full-body URBN armor set, the URBN Judgement Axe, the URBN Skimmer Drone and its Lootscan.exe Radar Module, along with a unique online message icon.”
The listing gives a short rundown of the game’s plot as well as providing what look to be some new screenshots.
The Surge 2 Release Date
According to the Xbox One listing;
On the way to Jericho City, your plane is shot down by a mysterious storm and crash-lands in the outskirts. Soldiers enforce Martial Law, robots are on a rampage, and a dark, expanding nanostorm looms over the cityscape.
In a bid to survive, explore the sprawling, devastated Jericho City. Fight ferocious threats in brutal, unforgiving combat, slashing and tearing the limbs off your opponents to steal valuable equipment that will make you stronger – strong enough to face the most fearsome, imposing foes lurking in the city.
With an expanded arsenal of weapons, armours, abilities, implants, and drones to build your character, and a bigger, more varied and more ambitious world,
The Surge 2 challenges you to survive and unravel its hidden secrets.
Hardcore, brutal melee combat
Face deadly foes and colossal bosses
Cut off parts of the enemy you want to loot
Rich character progression and customization
The Surge 2 was announced in February 2018 and very few details have been revealed so far. In the original game, a “catastrophic event has knocked you out during the first day on the job… you wake up equipped with a heavy-grade exoskeleton, in a destroyed section of the complex.”
The Surge was a great addition to the Soulsborne genre and had enough new ideas to differentiate it from the others. The announcement of a sequel was a welcome one.
And now, thanks to Microsoft, it appears as though The Surge 2 will be available on September 24, 2019. The pre-order on the Australian store costs $89.95 AUD.
September isn’t too busy at this stage with only Borderlands 3 and GRID announced as two high profile releases.
