The Surge released last year and proved to be a solid addition to the Souls-like genre. Now, during Gamescom, a new gameplay trailer has been revealed that shows off the game’s tightened combat and more varied enemies and locales.
Specifically, The trailer showcases a new forest area. This area also features a number of human enemies, a type of enemy that was mostly missing in the original game. Finally, the trailer shows off a new boss. This boss’ design is really cool as it camouflages itself as a statue before attacking its enemies.
A bunch of new executions and weapons can also be seen throughout the trailer.
The trailer for the game can be found below.
The Surge 2 is being developed by Deck13 Interactive, who developed the first game as well as Lords of the Fallen. Focus Home Interactive is once again publishing the sequel. The game is set to launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2019.
Check out what we thought of the original game in our review of The Surge.
I am a lover of story-driven experiences, such as Life is Strange. As a keen PlayStation fan, I spend too much of my time collecting Trophies for no discernable reason. The moments where I am not wasting time on a trophy hunt are spent sharing my enthusiasm for games through writing.
