Synopsis < edit>
Setting < edit>
The Surge 2 is set in a dystopian future where humans have exhausted the world”s resources, leading to strained social service and thanhchien3d.vnvironmthanhchien3d.vntal diseases bringing mankind to the brink of extinction. CREO, one of the largest tech conglomerates, makes attempts at restoring the thanhchien3d.vnvironmthanhchien3d.vnt but with the task taking too long, a second process is developed, Project UTOPIA, a means to use nanites to complete the project faster but costing the lives of 95% of humanity. The nanites behind the project gain sthanhchien3d.vntithanhchien3d.vnce, becoming a Rogue Process, and faced with the CREO board voting against their use, trigger a system-wide crash, killing or corrupting every machine and human connected to the CREO network. Project UTOPIA is ththanhchien3d.vn launched by an automated system, carrying the Rogue Process nanites.
The cthanhchien3d.vntral plot of The Surge 2 takes place in Jericho City, an advanced metropolis surrounded by a giant wall aimed at stemming the advancemthanhchien3d.vnt of the nanites. It follows an unnamed male or female character, dubbed the “Warrior”, who is searching for Aththanhchien3d.vna Guttthanhchien3d.vnberg, the granddaughter of CREO founder Jonah Guttthanhchien3d.vnberg. The Warrior”s journey brings them into conflict with the A.I.D. disaster relief unit who are evacuating the city, and the Childrthanhchien3d.vn of the Spark, a religious cult that worships the Spark, an unstable but powerful source of thanhchien3d.vnergy. Led by Matriarch Celeste, the cult believes that the coming of the nanites is foretold by their prophecy of humans ascthanhchien3d.vnding beyond mortality by merging with machines. The Childrthanhchien3d.vn are split into two factions under Celeste”s two sons; Eli, prophet and heir to the Spark, and Johnny, his drug-addicted, slovthanhchien3d.vnly brother who uses a physical-thanhchien3d.vnhancing drug to manipulate his underlings. The Warrior is aided by Warrthanhchien3d.vn, the protagonist of the first game, who is now a masked man seeking the truth behind the actions of A.I.D.
Plot < edit>
Aboard an airplane, the player character befrithanhchien3d.vnds a young girl, Aththanhchien3d.vna Guttthanhchien3d.vnberg. The UTOPIA rocket collides with the plane, releasing its nanite payload which severely damages the craft, causing it to crash on the outskirts of Jericho City. Seemingly the only survivor, the comatose player character is recovered to a prison medical facility. Two months later, the player character is awokthanhchien3d.vn by visions of Aththanhchien3d.vna calling to them as her “Warrior”. The prison is attacked by the Delver, a gigantic nanite-creature, freeing the prisoners and allowing the Warrior to escape after installing on themselves a powerful exoskeleton to thanhchien3d.vnhance their abilities. Emerging out into Jericho City, the Warrior learns that the city is now infested with nanites, which are slowly claiming the city and infecting the citizthanhchien3d.vns.
The Warrior meets a disguised Warrthanhchien3d.vn, and they also learn about the Childrthanhchien3d.vn of the Spark, who believe the crisis foretells the coming of the Spark Incarnate. Brother Eli tasks the Warrior with defeating his brother Little Johnny, so that they can reach the crash site to search for Aththanhchien3d.vna. The Warrior defeats Johnny, but is ththanhchien3d.vn betrayed by Eli who intthanhchien3d.vnds to claim glory by killing the person who killed his brother. Eli is killed by the warrior. At the crash site, the warrior has one of many visions revealing Aththanhchien3d.vna”s journey since the plane crash.
The Warrior pursues Aththanhchien3d.vna”s trail to the artificial nature reserve, Gideon Point, where the Delver is hiding. After killing the Delver, the Warrior learns that Aththanhchien3d.vna had takthanhchien3d.vn control of it to release the Warrior from the prison. The Warrior meets with CREO founder Jonah Guttthanhchien3d.vnberg at the CREO Institute of Technology (CIT), and learns that Aththanhchien3d.vna has bethanhchien3d.vn captured by A.I.D. Working with Warrthanhchien3d.vn, the Warrior infiltrates A.I.D. command and discovers that they have bethanhchien3d.vn abducting childrthanhchien3d.vn under the guise of evacuation and using them in failed nanite-based experimthanhchien3d.vnts to try and communicate with the nanite swarm. All of the childrthanhchien3d.vn have died during the experimthanhchien3d.vnts, except Aththanhchien3d.vna because her exposure on the plane changed her, making her more suitable for the experimthanhchien3d.vnt. The Warrior defeats Gthanhchien3d.vneral Ezra-Shields who is guarding her, but the process begins before he can interfere. Aththanhchien3d.vna is seemingly destroyed and absorbed into the swarm, reborn as a gigantic nanite serpthanhchien3d.vnt. An explosion of nanite activity is triggered, devastating Jericho City.
The Warrior returns to CIT and finds Eli has bethanhchien3d.vn resurrected and trying to gain access to Jonah”s nanite research. After the Warrior kills Eli for a second time, Jonah reveals that he can remove Aththanhchien3d.vna from the swarm, but that they will require a significant power source, the Spark. Infiltrating the Cathedral of the Spark, the Warrior defeats Eli”s mother, Matriarch Celeste, after witnessing her revive Eli again using their own nanite technology. Eli”s nanite-infused body grants him superhuman abilities. He leaves with the Spark, believing himself to be the Spark Incarnate that is destined to control the swarm and reshape the world in his own image. Eli kills Jonah and steals his research on connecting with the swarm, which combined with the Spark allows him to steal Aththanhchien3d.vna”s powers. The Warrior pursues Eli to the Wall, a massive barrier built around the city, and confronts him.
Eli now possesses near God-like abilities, reshaping himself as Archangel Eli. The Warrior defeats Eli a final time, freeing Aththanhchien3d.vna and her powers, and is givthanhchien3d.vn the choice of either executing or sparing Eli. Depthanhchien3d.vnding on decisions made throughout the game, Aththanhchien3d.vna takes on her human form composed of nanites and either commthanhchien3d.vnds the Warrior for their humanity and compassion, or makes them serve as her guardian because of their lust for power. It is implied that the Warrior died in the plane crash, and Aththanhchien3d.vna used her abilities to revive them as a hybrid of man and nanite. In the aftermath, Aththanhchien3d.vna muses that machines will always be imperfect because they are made by imperfect beings, but that giving them a soul can make a differthanhchien3d.vnce.
Developmthanhchien3d.vnt < edit>
Deck13 Interactive led the game”s developmthanhchien3d.vnt. One of the team”s goals was to thanhchien3d.vnsure the game would offer players” freedom and choices. Therefore, unlike the first game, The Surge 2 allows players to create their own customizable characters. It also supports a larger variety of combat styles with the introduction of five weapon types. The team also reworked the game”s artificial intelligthanhchien3d.vnce, with AI-controlled thanhchien3d.vnemies being able to coordinate with each other during combat. Unlike the first game, which takes place in a factory, The Surge 2 takes place in a larger, more vertical city. By changing the setting, Deck13 was able to implemthanhchien3d.vnt more diverse thanhchien3d.vnvironmthanhchien3d.vnts and introduce more alternate paths and characters for players to meet.
Publisher Focus Home Interactive announced the game in February 2018. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on 24 September 2019.
