GSY Review PC PS4 Xbox One

We particularly liked The Surge 2 back when we reviewed it before its original release in September, but we have been concerned with the performance issues we have been facing since then. While our review code allowed us to play in 4K with an 80/85% resolution scaling without witnessing a single frame drop, we now cannot go over 1080p with our RTX 2080 Ti and i9 9900K and it's been the case for months. Lowering the settings makes no difference, neither did our many attempts at reinstalling the game and switching to another SSD. With that in mind, we were afraid we might not be able to enjoy the new DLC which came out last week. In the end, we did have a pleasant time with it despite the occasional drops (in 1080p!!!), but we didn't expect it to be so short. Quick explanations inside.
Note: If you're interested in The Kraken, stay away from the second part of our video, which shows its final boss.

The all-new storyline, location, enemies, weapons and gears for The Surge 2 are now available with in The Kraken expansion. If you have yet to dive into Deck13's action-RPG, Focus had the good idea to also release a Premium Edition that contains the base and all the Season Pass content.

The Surge 2 confirmed the potential of Deck13's new franchise so you'll be happy to know that the first DLC included in the game's season pass will be available next week on January 16. To discover the teaser for The Krakken, you know what to do.

Our video coverage of The Surge 2 is now ready for you and we actually have quite a lot to show today. Inside, you will be able to check out every single version of the game in the best possible quality. We have gameplay videos, FPS analysis videos for the performance mode of the console versions and we even recorded a few boss encounters. If you're interested in the game, we obviously advise you to stay away from the boss fights videos so you don't get spoiled.

    Melmoth for games not exporting data, you can still use audio as input on the jetseat, but i haven't tried that yet and don't know how well it works. (3 Days ago)

  • Melmoth

    Melmoth while the jetseat uses telemetry from the games that support exporting it, and has 6-8 zones of vibration/feedback. so you get much more nuansed and adjustable feedback (3 Days ago)

    Melmoth @toelessfoot: I don't have any experience with the buttkicker, but from what i understand it's just using game-audio as input, and is 1 large shaker/motor, so it won't be direction-specific feedback (3 Days ago)
