In The Surge 2 you’ll get the chance to clean up the sci-fi streets of Jericho City with a variety of weapons that appear to be designed with the art of the head lop in mind. The latest trailer for this September 24 release gives you a good idea of enemy and location variety, as well as how limb removal works. Detached body parts sometimes transform into valuable loot. If you see an enemy wearing something shiny on an arm and leg, chop it off to see if it is better than the gear you have now.
The Surge 2 is slated to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and is the sequel to the 2017 game that I scored a 7 out of 10 and said “I didn’t mind investing over 50 hours to the grind in The Surge. I felt powerful at times and exploring every little area rewarded me with a nice bounty. It just clings too tightly to a one-note approach to world building, enemy encounters, and level design.” The trailer makes it look like this sequel addresses that one-note criticism.
