Some of you liked The Surge a lot more than we did when it released, but its sequel is looking like the real deal. In a gameplay-focused developer walkthrough, The Surge 2 shines in eight minutes of footage that puts the focus on combat, alternate routes, and abilities. Check it out above.

The walkthrough focuses on a hostile control point within Jericho City, which in the first 60 seconds of gameplay, proves its no pushover. Head of Game Design, Adam Hetenyi, then explores different ways the player could go about eliminating the stronghold or how one would go about getting around it. Alongside a sneak peek at a boss fight, we have to say we're genuinely looking forward to this one. The Assassin's Creed II of The Surge franchise? We hope so.

What do you make of this new footage? Slice a limb off in the comments below.
