A week removed from a Gameplay Overview Trailer released during Gamescom, Deck13 and Focus Home have released another trailer for The Surge 2, focusing specifically on combat.
The short 1-minute trailer is pretty self-explanatory, showcasing several flashy combat maneuvers from multiple weapon types, including some footage against a few bosses. There are over 80 weapons to chose from, ranging from long-range spears to a more brawl-style punching glove weapon.
In The Surge 2 you are thrust into Jericho City, a dystopian sci-fi megacity under quarantine, where several factions vie for dominance over the various districts. In this urban jungle, you will be hunted by everything from religious cultists to nanomonstrosities, so you must embrace the oldest law known to humankind – evolve to survive. When faced with an enemy, target specific parts of their body and slice off tech you need to upgrade your exo-rig. The combat is intense.
With 80 weapons to choose from, a directional parry system, dodge mechanics, drones, and a huge range of brutal execution moves, you can approach combat in the way that suits your playstyle. Charge in and pound your enemies into submission with punching gloves or sting like a bee using the spear.
The Surge 2 is due out on September 24 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
