RockPaperShotgun has released a new video, showing 11 minutes of brand new gameplay footage from the PC version of The Surge 2. According to RPS, this PC demo allowed them to explore the park district, take on new soldier AI – and their cloaking devices – try out a range of spears, lances and axes (and the finishing moves they trigger) and test the game’s new drone.
The Surge 2 will have double the number of weapon classes (than its predecessor) and the weapon skill system will be enhanced and upgraded. As said, the game also features an upgraded drone, will have more bosses and a large variety of enemies, the AI will be improved/enhanced, and some enemies will have guns.
The combo mechanics have also been completely rewritten. Furthermore, lots of fighting and combo mechanics have been upgraded and there is a lot more flexibility in cooldowns now. Also, levels will be more interconnected and traversing the world will be possible in many more layers now.
The Surge 2 is currently planned for release later this year.
