Heads (and arms and legs) Roll In New Combat Trailer For The Surge 2
Deck 13 has really upped the ante with The Surge 2, addressing the few concerns people had about the original. Low res textures? Gone. The sometimes stilted animations? Improved across the board.
The new combat trailer showcases better movement around the environment, including a zipline, and how you can use verticality to get the drop – pun intended – on your enemies. The combat mechanics look refined as well, though it’s hard to say if that translates into actual gameplay until we get to go hands on with it.
September 24th can’t get here fast enough, and after watching the trailer I’m feeling the itch to jump back into the original… PC players who haven’t given it a shot can try it for free on Steam until August 29th, and can pick the game and its DLC for up to 75% off until August 30th.
Here’s the press release:
The Surge 2 shows off its blood-pumping combat in a new trailer
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.
Pre-orders are now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and come with the URBN Gear Pack, which includes a new armor set, two new weapons, and other cosmetics and equipment. The Surge 2 releases September 24. The original The Surge is free to try until August 29 on Steam and can be purchased at up to 75% off until August 30.
