The Surge 2 will soon be in the hands of gamers across the world, as the developers have revealed that it has gone gold and production of the physical version of the game has begun.
The Surge 2 is an action RPG that shares a lot of similarities with FromSoftware's Souls series, with the main difference being that it uses a science-fiction setting. It is the sequel to The Surge, which was released back in 2017 to above average review scores. The Surge 2 is set in the ruins of Jericho City, which is affected by a nanite disease that has caused machines to turn violent. It's up to the player to uncover the mystery of what exactly happened to Jericho City, which involves dismembering a lot of enemies.
It seems that The Surge 2 has avoided any last-minute delays, as the developers at Deck 13 Interactive have revealed on Twitter that the game has gone gold. This means that the game has passed certification and a master copy of the physical version has been created, which will be replicated for the other copies of the game.

The Surge 2 (and its predecessor) are spiritual sequels to Lords of the Fallen, which was another title that was compared unfavorably to the Dark Souls series. The Surge 2 is aiming to distance itself from the series that inspired its creation with an attempt at utilizing its science-fiction setting to the fullest. One of the most important aspects of combat in The Surge 2 is using your weapons to dismember your enemies, as it's possible to earn blueprints based on the technology connected to those limbs. There is an incentive to use strategy in battle in order to take off specific limbs from enemies, as they might have a weapon that the player can use.
The aim of The Surge 2 was to give the player more freedom in their choices, both from a gameplay and story perspective. It remains to be seen whether the developers succeeded in this goal, but players won't have long to wait to find out, as The Surge 2 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on September 24th, 2019.
