The Surge 2 is coming out in September, prepare to kick heads from shoulders

The Surge 2 is due out on September 24th this year, the developer of the sci-fi Souls-like has announced.

Pre-orders are now open on the Microsoft Store, and come with an exclusive armour set, weapons and equipment.

It’s a tricky ask for any game to distinguish itself in a genre which such a clear leader, but the shift to a sci-fi setting led to a slightly warmer reception for The Surge than its predecessor, Lords of the Fallen. Our Sherif found The Surge was at its best when striking out on its own, rather than co-opting mechanics from the Souls games.

As for The Surge 2? There aren’t many action-RPGs in which you can slice off an enemy’s head and boot it from their body in one move, so that’s a form of distinction in itself.
