The Surge 2 has a confirmed release date - it'll launch worldwide on PS4 on 24th September 2019 along with some lovely little pre-order bonuses.

Should you wish to put some money down early for the title, you'll get your hands on the URBN Gear Pack. This comes with Warren’s original Cutter from The Surge, the unique, full-body URBN armor set, the URBN Judgement Axe, the URBN Skimmer Drone and its Lootscan.exe Radar Module, along with a unique online message icon.

An Australian store listing for the Xbox One version also gave away a couple more details. "On the way to Jericho City, your plane is shot down by a mysterious storm and crash-lands in the outskirts. Armor-clad soldiers enforce Martial Law, robots are on a rampage, and a dark, expanding nanostorm looms over the cityscape..." The mechanic that allows you to sever limbs off of enemies returns from the first game, there'll be character progression and customisation, gigantic bosses to defeat, and hardcore combat. It's all sounding like an impressive evolution of the original game.
