Deck13’s latest Souls-like venture, The Surge 2, was met with open arms by fans when it was released late last month. Today, players can purchase the game’s new Season Pass for the price of $19.99. But it’s no gamble; Deck13 has been courteous enough to release their roadmap alongside the Season Pass.
The Surge 2‘s Season Pass kicks off in November, when the killing spree continues with 13 new weapons to play with. Then in December, three complete sets of gear will come for players’ exo-rigs. Come January, players will be able explore a brand new location dubbed “The Kraken.” Deck13 promises that in its depths are hours of additional content and new threats to overcome.
Players can search Jericho City for new “mad pioneers” currently in possession of their new toys. In addition, the Season Pass-exclusive BORAX-I Quantum Weapon will be immediately available for all Season Pass owners. The new weapons and gear will certainly spice up gameplay on future playthroughs, but some may be disappointed in the number of new locations. For the price of $19.99, however, it certainly seems like a decent deal.
Cyber Souls-like celebration
The Surge 2 Season Pass should be a no-brainer for diehard fans of the franchise, but the futuristic action RPG may not be for everyone. PC Invasion’s John Farrell found a lot to love in The Surge 2 — but equally as much to roll eyes at. The focus on dismemberment and customization of exo-rigs is a delight, but awkward level design mars the experience. However, many other critics and fans alike have taken a strong liking to The Surge 2, citing vast improvements over the original.
But here at PC Invasion, many of us are suckers for a solid Souls-like, and if you are too, then maybe The Surge 2 is worth the pick-up. And of course, the season pass is available if you’re still in the mood for some more dismemberment.
