Latest trailer for The Surge 2 provides some background on the story

The Surge 2 is about more than battling enemies, it has a story too ya know.

It's the beginning of the end of humanity in The Surge 2, as life on earth is slowing trickling away.

The story in the action RPG entry begins after the deFrag nanovirus strikes following the launch of a Utopia rocket. It's up to you to fight everything plaguing Jericho City to discover origins of the virus.

You can get an idea of the start of the story by watching the latest trailer below. Deck13 has also provided a blurb on the trailer.

Here, we meet our hero, and many of the inhabitants of Jericho City. Nano-cultists run rampant through the streets, harvesting everything they can from the environment for their mysterious ends. The government forces of A.I.D attempt to maintain a stranglehold on the city with violent means. All the while, Athena, a girl with whom you have a special connection, leads you through the streets to a destination unknown.

Players of the previous game will find the Surge formula is back, but with new weapons,  gadgets, enhanced ranged combat, additional implants, and more loadout options.

The Surge 2 releases September 24 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is currently available for pre-order.
