RAGE 2 Announcement and Gameplay Trailer

Bethesda.net welcomes us to the "shooterverse" of RAGE 2 with an official announcement along with the promised first gameplay trailer for the first-person shooter sequel. They say this is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 in 2019, and while they confirm that Avalanche Studios is contributing their "mastery of the open world sandbox," the main developer on this is still listed as id Software, just like the original RAGE. Here's word:

Mankind is in peril. In the decades following an asteroid’s devastation, most of the earth has become an unforgiving wildland where bloodthirsty factions vie for control of precious resources. Pockets of civilization have emerged to claim their space in the world, but the tentative peace they’ve established is being threatened. RAGE 2 follows Walker, the last Ranger of Vineland, as he fights to survive the chaos of the dystopian world into which he was born. With a wide array of weapons, vehicles and strange powers, Walker sets off to take down the tyrannical Authority. Get your first look at the insane action in the worldwide gameplay reveal trailer below and check out the live action teaser released on May 14 here. RAGE 2 will be launching on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2019.

The Open-World Shooterverse
It’s the perfect mix: id Software’s first-person shooter pedigree, Avalanche Studios’ mastery of the open world sandbox, with a healthy dose of pedal-to-the-metal vehicle combat. From the swamplands and jungles where enemies lurk among the dense foliage, to the open deserts where a passing car is more likely to mow you down than offer you a ride, the world of RAGE 2 is not a gentle, nurturing place. The people who have survived in this landscape have had to learn to protect themselves and keep their heads on a swivel, especially with the reemergence of a familiar menace.

As if the gangs and mutants aren’t enough, Walker also has to contend with the Authority, returning antagonists from the first game who threaten anything good remaining in the world. Led by General Cross, the Authority is on a renewed mission to hunt down the few remaining pureblood Arkists left in the world, and Cross is willing to slaughter everyone to achieve his goals. That’s where Walker’s wealth of unique guns and gear comes in – and he’ll need every one of his powerful weapons to defend the wild wasteland he calls home.

Walker, Vineland Ranger
A Ranger’s arsenal isn’t limited to the abundance of upgradeable weapons and toys at their disposal. Fueled by Arkist blood, these elite fighters are the only people in the world who can harness special Nanotrite abilities. However, this blood has also made them a target for the Authority, and after years of fighting, Walker is the only Ranger still standing.

Among the arrows he can choose from his Nanotrite ability quiver are the power to crush enemies into paste from above in a devastating slam attack or send them flying away from him with a lethal energy push. Walker will also learn to channel these Nanotrites into his weapons, pushing them into an awe-inspiring Overdrive, a unique skill that lets him push his guns beyond their limits and unleash absolute hell on his foes. Chain these abilities together to make Walker a powerhouse of destruction, quickly refilling his Overdrive meter. While in Overdrive, Walker’s guns do more damage, they gain new attributes, enemies drop better rewards and Walker’s health starts to regenerate. When timed correctly, Overdrive is more than enough to tip the scales in a tricky fight.

There’s a lot more to come for RAGE 2. Tune into the BE3 Showcase on Sunday, June 10, at 6:30pm PT for more gameplay and details. You can catch the stream live on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook or here at Bethesda.net.

I'm now more interested. Avalanche's last big title was Mad Max which was fucking awesome.

Let's not forget Just Cause 3 which is actually a lot of fun. I enjoyed it a heck of a lot more than 1 and 2. Yeah Mad Max is also highly underrated. Constantly on sale around 5 bucks, it's a damn steal.

Hope they add gameplay elements from Borderlands. The game worlds are similar, so it would make sense.

You're not wrong, although their choice of studios was very good.

This trailer actually looks pretty sweet, definitely a decent sale price buy for me. To the wishlist!

Only thing I don't like is the standard, formulaic, add-in psyonic, force powers I saw the player using with his hands... Other than that, it looked pretty RAGEish, SP shooter fun.

Looks ok...

If it has full campaign co-op i may consider it.

Plus one for coop. Gaming is a social event for me most of the time.

Plenty of games for you out there. But this one? Make single-player games great again! Single-player experience FIRST!

(No, we don't need a wall to keep all those "gaming is a social event" guys out of single-player country.)


seems like co-op would fit perfectly in a game like this. from the trailer, it looks like a mixture of the original rage and destiny to me.

That trailer was more twitch heavy and less content. Pure marketing hype.

Gotta love the typical BN negative comments.

Trailer looks awesome. If they can keep the nutty stuff at 110% for the whole game and add in a cliche, corny story, along with over the top J.J. Abrams effects I'll buy it just to offend people.

Because Doom had wide open levels and vehicles?

Going to be so bummed out if theirs no Coop this time around. Yes the first one had Coop missions, but those were trashy.

Yup, probably wont buy it if there isnt co-op campaign.

Ill just wait for Borderlands 3

Yup, looking good. But announcing it early makes me wonder what else they've got in store for their E3 show.

So a bit of Destiny 2 and a bit of Borderlands 2 with a splash of APB. Gotcha.
