The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented official artwork and logo

I have to hand it to Deck13, their post-launch support for The Surge has been pretty darn good. It received a rather sizable new area to explore through A Walk in the Park DLC back in December, a bunch of new weapons and bosses through two different recent content updates, and soon it will even be getting a Western themed expansion - The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented.

The new expansion will give you a chance to fight through progressively more devious test chambers, all of which appear to have been torn straight from a twisted wild west TV show. The more modifiers you add to each encounter, the trickier the battles will be, but the bigger the rewards you will be able to claim at the very end. And naturally,  you will also have a chance to square off against brand new bosses at the finale of each stage, bosses that come equipped with 30 unique new weapons, armors and implants that can be 'borrowed' for your own use.

While the recently posted teaser trailer won't tell you much about the actual gameplay, it will give you a decent idea of the sort of Western theme The Good, the Bad, and the Augmented is aiming for. Have a look:

If you would like to give the new challenges a try, and you don't mind the repetition that comes from arena-like game modes, then you should head on over to Steam to learn a little bit more about The Good, the Bad, and The Augmented. As for the release date, you can expect to see this expansion arrive on October 2nd for the PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The final thing worth mentioning is that the expansion will also arrive alongside the "Augmented Edition", which will include the full game and all of its DLC. So if you haven't already given The Surge a try, this new collection would be an excellent place to start.
