Story in The Surge 2 about the ecological wasteland where the setting would be.
The Surge 2 Background
The Surge 2 takes place in a world that is destroying itself through ecological collapse. The environmental disasters are unprecedented, with rivers drying out and all sorts of wildlife dying out due to pollution. Humanity is concentrated in large cities that are struggling to sustain itself, and a large corporation named CREO's efforts to restore the planet by firing rockets full of nanobots into the atmosphere didn't turn out as expected. Unfortunately, those nanobots drove the city's inhabitants into a rage – causing them to go crazy and start killing each other.
