The much-anticipated Surgeon Simulator 2 is coming this summer to the Epic Games Store.
Surgeon Simulator 2 will be released for PC on August 27 as an Epic Games Store exclusive. Players who pre-order the game will also be entitled to enter the closed beta which will run between August 7-9.
The sequel to the 2013 cult-classic is based on the premise of acting as surgeon, with an excessively hard-to-master control system. Its centred on elaborate premises, such as completing an operation in zero gravity. Surgeon Simulator 2 will also include a four player co-op mode with fully explorable environments.
The most notable new feature is the game’s Creation Mode in which players can create their own medical facilities and operations. These custom levels can be shared online for other players to download and play.

Sony also recently invested $250 million into Epic Games to bind the two companies together and evolve state of the art technology. This news came after Epic Games showcased the new Unreal 5 graphics engine it was developing.
Kenichiro Yoshida, the President and CEO of Sony Corporation, stated: “Epic’s powerful technology in areas such as graphics places them at the forefront of game engine development with Unreal Engine and other innovations.”
