Focus Home Interactive and Deck13 have released some early alpha gameplay footage of The Surge 2, their upcoming hardcore RPG sequel to The Surge.
In the new trailer, you’ll be able to see a brand new Park sector located in the center of the city that’s been destroyed by The Surge. As a result, mercenaries called The Hunters are roaming amongst the artificial forest, on the hunt for a powerful creature.
What this means for players is that they will have to keep an eye out for things they’ve left in their wake, from traps, cloaking devices, and probably worst of all, out-of-control park guardians.
With The Surge 2, players can expect to find the same great hardcore RPG mechanics from the first, including the limb targeting system, with improvements being added across the board. A brand new environment will also offer new ways to play offering a more ambitious, sprawling map made possible by the improved FLEDGE engine.
Players can expect to find more advanced dodging mechanics, directional parrying, and new AI behaviors that’ll make progress even tougher. Fortunately, players will find more abilities, weapons, implants, and drones at their disposal.

The Surge 2 is expected to land on Xbox One, PS4, and PC in 2019.
