Surge 2

It’s hard to compete with FromSoftware when it comes to the ‘Soulsborne’ genre. But Deck13 is getting closer and closer with every release.

The Surge 2’s predecessor may not have been a perfect game, but it was a more than adequate experience with some great ideas. Now that the sequel is arriving, it’s hard not to be just a little bit excited by the possibility of this new release.
