Yesterday, one of gaming’s worst kept secrets was officially revealed, that being Bethesda Softworks’ RAGE 2. Now, as promised, the publisher has followed up with gameplay from the collaboration between id Software and Avalanche Studios.
As the trailer boasts, RAGE 2 is chock full of “big fucking guns” and has more than its share of enemies to use them on. Things start off slowly, by introducing a world that has been ravaged by at least one massive bomb, then picks up steam before going into full balls to the wall mode. It’s there where we see a lot of the aforementioned gameplay, including massive shootouts, dangerous driving and a myriad of explosions.
That, as well as a shitload of colour and a healthy dose of punk rock.
In RAGE 2, you’ll dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. You can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything. The game brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world mayhem and id Software, gods of the first-person shooter – to deliver a carnival of carnage.
In the year 2185, humanity’s numbers are dwindling. Ruthless and bloodthirsty gangs roam the open roads and the tyrannical Authority seek to rule who remains with an iron fist. You are Walker, the last Ranger of the wasteland. Robbed of your home and left for dead, you’ll tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling bloodthirsty gangs to find the tools and tech needed to take the fight to The Authority and crush their oppressive rule once and for all!
RAGE 2 is heading to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and is scheduled to arrive during 2019’s spring window.
