After being released in September, The Surge 2 has been met with positive praise and reception. The new Accolades Trailer features the positive reception of several outlets, including our own.
The Surge 2, the brutal Action-RPG set in the chaotic city of Jericho, released last month to a wide critical acclaim on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC and to celebrate, Deck 13 and Focus Home Interactive are happy to present today’s limb-lopping, visceral Accolades Trailer, recapping the positive reception in typical Surge 2 style.
The Surge 2 drops you in the crumbled carcass of Jericho amid a DeFrag nanostorm take-over of the city, and throws crazed techno-cultists, nanomachine monstrosities, and more at you as you try to slash and dash your way out.
Create your own character and put your reactions and RPG character-building skills to the test. Deep character progression and customization let you decide how to equip yourself and handle enemies – with many additions over the original game and the return of its signature executions. Each fight is a desperate risk-versus-reward decision where you must utilize all the tools in your arsenal to survive, from a customizable combat drone, to game-changing implants, to a new directional parrying system and many more.
Carving your way through the intricately interlocking pathways of Jericho has clearly struck a chord with press and players alike and the team is delighted for you to return, as one reviewer put it, “time and time and time and time and time and time again”.
The Surge 2 is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Last month, we reviewed the game and gave it a 95 for its industry-leading level design, good, gory combat, and an incredible New Game+. Check out that review here.
