“The team has been working hard on The Surge 2 and we’ve now reached a stage at which we’d like to gather feedback about the game,” Deck13 and Focus Home Interactive state in the beta application form. “Your reports will be instrumental in order to polish the experience as much as possible.”
Here’s an overview of the game, via Steam Listing:
On the way to Jericho City, your plane is shot down by a mysterious storm and crash-lands in the outskirts. You wake up weeks later in a derelict detention facility inside the city. Armor-clad soldiers enforce Martial Law, robots are on a rampage, and a dark, expanding nanostorm looms over the cityscape…
In a bid to survive, explore the sprawling, devastated city of Jericho. Fight its numerous, ferocious threats in brutal, unforgiving combat, slashing and tearing the limbs off your opponents to steal valuable equipment that will make you stronger – strong enough to face the most fearsome, imposing foes lurking in the city. With an expanded arsenal of weapons, armors, abilities, implants, and drones to build your character, and a bigger, more varied and more ambitious world, The Surge 2 challenges you to survive and unravel its hidden secrets.
– Hardcore, brutal melee combat
– Face deadly foes and colossal bosses
– Cut off parts of the enemy you want to loot
– Rich character progression and customization
The Surge 2 will be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC sometime in 2019.
