Symphony of Violence Trailer Showcases The Surge 2's Limb-Targeting System
Gamers are two weeks away from the limb-chopping, head-severing exploits of The Surge 2, and a new ‘Symphony of Violence’ trailer shows off exactly the kind of action you can expect.
In the action-adventure-RPG blend, players can target enemies limbs to remove threats like powerful weapons, which allows them to claim the weapon for their own build, or simply eliminate a foe quickly by hitting their vulnerable points.
The original game was a surprise hit, and the sequel – hitting shelves September 24th – looks to dial things up to 11.
Here’s the press release:
The Surge 2: Dismantle Your Foes With Elegant Efficiency in the New Symphony of Violence Trailer
The Surge 2 brings back The Surge’s acclaimed combat system, allowing you to target and weaken enemy armor points so you can take the equipment for yourself, or aim for a weak spot and finish the fights quickly. Each fight becomes a desperate risk-versus-reward decision, and you must utilize all the tools in your arsenal to survive, including a customizable combat drone, game-changing implants, a new directional parrying system and many more…
Discover the mysteries of Jericho City and the sources of the nanomachine plague alongside Athena, a young girl linked to your past, and escape the gripping chaos of Jericho City.
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 Surge 2 takes place in a brand new environment: a sprawling, devastated city with larger and more ambitious level design, made possible by Deck13’s upgraded and improved engine. Combat is more brutal and tactical than ever, with even more options thanks to an expanded limb targeting system. In addition, more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones give players a vast arsenal to build their character with, in their fight against the array of diverse new enemies and bosses.
