Surgeon Simulator 2 will take the first game’s brutally amusing cartoon operations, and add a much wider game around it – from larger, more varied levels, to 4-player co-op, to customisation, and even an entire level creation suite.In a game overview video revealed at IGN Expo today, we got a first look at the sequel’s many additions, all set in the new Bossa Labs medical facility, a varied set of areas to unlock, featuring new items like the Anatomy Vendor, multiple new tools to operate with, and dozens of physics-enabled objects to accidentally knock over.
Check out the gameplay video below:
The video also introduces the game’s four characters, Penny, Kamal, Heather and Milo, all of whom can be used in 4-player co-op, and can be customised with new costumes and a variety of finger ornaments.
We also got a look at the Bossa Labs Creation Mode, which opens up the streamlined level creation tools used by the developers themselves. Level designs can run from medical, to sci-fi, to fantasy, and can be uploaded for other players to try.
Pre-ordering the standard version of the game on Epic Games Store will open up closed beta access and an exclusive Mad Scientist costume, with the Deluxe Edition offering more on top of that.
