Focus Home Interactive has posted a new trailer for The Surge 2, showcasing the limb-lopping, gear-stealing stylings of the game's combat system.
In The Surge games, rather than standard levels or EXP, you instead power up your character through the type of gear and implants you gain out on the battlefield, and your specific capabilities in combat are determined by coordinating the gear your character uses. When facing off against humanoid enemies, you can choose which body part to target - like the head or legs - and perform kill moves to gain the equipment being worn.
Check out the trailer below. A recent trailer focusing more on combat can be found here.
The Surge 2 is due out on September 24 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
