The unique action RPG The Surge 2 is set to release September 24. That’s under a month away, and to get you hyped for this anticipated sequel, The Surge is being offered for free until the the 29th. That’s just enough time to revisit this incredible story and stomp around a powerful and fun exo suit.

If you enjoy the title so much, you’ll be happy to know that it will be 75% for a limited time. Deck13 Interactive has a lot to be proud of with the original. Its dystopian world is worth visiting again if you’ve already played through The Surge. If you haven’t, the premise revolves around a society that’s been rendered obsolete thanks to the advancements in technology.

To keep up with such innovation, humans developed exo suits so that they don’t remain unemployed. That’s a huge aspect of this game that you’ll fall in love with from the start. Moving around like a mech warrior never gets old.

The game’s main protagonist also is a pretty easy to get behind. Warren just joined one of the largest conglomerates that’s in control of almost everything. Just as he’s about to choose his rig and undergo advanced exoskeleton surgery, things go awry. He wakes up to find drones attacking everyone inside these headquarters.

You’ll spend a majority of your time navigating different environments in search of clues that detail what went wrong. A revolution is happening and the very existence of humanity is at stake. To battle the various enemies Warren comes across, you’ll have to use your powerful exoskeleton. It’s a beast of a machine that certainly lets you compete head to head with powerful drones and machines.

As you progress in the game, you’ll get to upgrade this suit in a lot of ways. For example, you can make it faster and more powerful with the right augments. You have plenty of incentive to progress and become an absolute beast during battles. Where this game really stands out is its dismemberment system. You can actually target limbs with your exo suit and take them off with one clean swipe. The visuals certainly are not for the feint of heart.

You can experience the intense action and the mysterious behind Warren’s current employers by checking out The Surge today. It’s the perfect way to delve deep into this game’s mechanics and story elements before the sequel officially releases in September.
