New content arriving in both the free and paid varieties.

An update for The Surge 2 was released yesterday. This update adds in some new, free content for everyone that owns the action-RPG game that some sites said was "better than the original in almost every way."

Specifically, the recent update added in the free Future Shock Weapon Pack. This pack adds in four new weapons and is available across all platforms (PC, PS4, and XB1). The weapons added are: A Golden Twin Blade, an "EFH" HEavy Duty Weapon, the Mangled Articulators Punching Gloves, and the Golden Harvest Double Duty Weapon. Just find the enemies that are using them, execute them, and claim the weapons for yourself.

Next week the Season Pass for The Surge 2 will be revealed. As with other season passes, this one will add in new weapons, more implants (mods), more gear sets, and new story DLC that promises to provide "hours of content in a new environment." Full details arrive next week on the Season Pass.

A patch for the game also includes a number of fixes. You can read the full patch notes below.
