Deck13’s hardcore RPG, The Surge is set to receive a sequel. Announcing through the game’s Facebook page the developer stated that The Surge 2 is in development and will be released in 2019. It’s presumably coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC just like its predecessor.
If you haven’t heard of The Surge, it follows the same formula of other Dark Souls-esque games, mostly relying on hardcore RPG hack and slash elements and difficult boss battles to make up the bulk of the game.
The Surge, received around a 70% score on Metacritic, with most issues being positioned towards the game’s boring level design and at times frustrating difficulty spikes. Let’s hope that the next iteration of this industrial third-person title manages to address these issues.
