No word on a specific release date for Rage 2 outside of 2019, but Bethesda promises a much more in-depth look at Rage 2 at their E3 Showcase on June 10. Punk aesthetic and all. However, you are never alone in RAGE 2, as mutants and gangs lurk in dense foliage, and passing cars in open deserts are more likely mow you down than give you a ride. "RAGE 2 brings together a true open world FPS experience where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything". Rage 2 is being developed by Doom and Quake Champions studio Id Software in collaboration with Mad Max and Just Cause hitmaker Avalanche Studios.
Gangs run rampant and what's left of society crumble under the iron fist of tyrannical leaders, known as the Authority.
Also set to return are vehicles, which is why Avalanche Studios are probably the ideal developers for Rage 2: they have the ability to turn numerous original's weaknesses into strengths.
The game is a sequel to the 2011 first person shooter by id Software, and the developers are back again at the helm for the second game in what's shaping up to be a potential series. While in Overdrive, guns do more damage, have new attributes and enemies drop better loot.More news: Fox, NBC decide less is more to start the fall season
Since then more teasers have been tweeted out, with many having a distinct post-apocalyptic flavour to it. Driving might not be the first thing that you think of when you see a first-person shooter, but its importance can't be understated, especially when it comes to Rage.
From motorcycles to monster trucks to gyrocopters, you'll have everything you need to turn the badlands into your personal playground of destruction.
Rage 2 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Luckily it seems to be the case that if you can see it, you can drive it, a la GTA.
Bring the pain using a collection of upgradable weapons and gear, unusual and powerful Nanotrite abilities, and Overdrive, a unique skill that lets you push your guns far beyond their mechanical limits.
