RAGE 2 Released

RAGE 2 (aka Rage 2) is now available on Steam, offering a sequel to id Software's 2010 first-person shooter. This return to the apocalyptic wasteland is developed by Avalanche Studios in conjunction with id, and the announcement has word on the game, which puts you in the boots of Ranger "Texas" Walker:
Let the RAGE-ing commence! RAGE 2 is now available worldwide for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. In RAGE 2’s “shooterverse,” you’ll experience classic id Software combat in an insane Avalanche Studios open world as Ranger Walker, the world’s closest thing to a superhero and best hope at overthrowing the tyrannical reign of General Cross and his mutated Authority minions.

WATCH the launch trailer here: https://youtu.be/PLQg-Vq2zQk

Master your devastating arsenal of flesh-chewing weapons combined with your performance enhancing Nanotrite-infused abilities to help turn the enemies of the wastes into bags of flesh. From the River Hogs of the swamps, to the Goon Squad of the wastes, to the sewer-dwelling mutants, to the samurai-esque Immortal Shrouded, everything in RAGE 2 is out to get you. Make sure you get all of them first. Want to learn more about what RAGE 2 brings to the table?

Again: watch the gameplay vids for the side missions on youtube - there is plenty to do. But it is true that I also had the impression that the map is not as loaded with side missions as the FarCry titles are. But I watched a couple of different side missions - the gameplay was partially hilarious fun (especially what those guys did with the alternate fire modes of the guns).

And it seems to have A LOT more contents than e.g. Anthem.

My toilet bowl has more content than Anthem. That's literally the lowest bar in the universe to clear.

Been watching a bit of this on Twitch and REALLY underwhelmed.

It's on my list to pick up.... in 3 or 4 months but there is nothing compelling about the game. Oh and people were streaming the entire story in 9 hours.

for an open world game thats pretty underwhelming.

At least when UBI makes an ope world game your in it for the long haul. 40 hours min.

The story of the Ubi games can be done in 9 hours, too. And that is what HElf was saying about Rage 2.

I've watched a couple of movies and the gameplay looked like great fun - don't know about the story, though, because I don't watch story vids - don't want to get spoilt. And it seems to have A LOT more contents than e.g. Anthem.

That may be, if you push your way though the game. but there are so many side quest that can be done, that you will be busy for a ton of hours.

Unlike Rage 2 where I've heard that theirs not a whole lot of side stuff to do, that these things are coming in the DLC which is sad that anyone has to buy DLC to get the full game they should have gotten on day one.

The gamesradar review (linked yesterday) was pretty down on it, saying the open world is devoid of anything to do. They ended with this:

The “Rage 2 roadmap” has already been revealed, showcasing world events and “wasteland challenges” in an effort to follow in the footsteps of successful games like Destiny 2 and The Division 2, but the difference is that this is a single player game. Anyone who purchases this game on launch is undoubtedly expecting a full release, rather than a relatively empty world that will be later populated with content under the guise of the 'Games as a Service' industry trend. There is no reason for so much content to be time-gated. Were everything that is planned to arrive in the coming months, there's a chance that Rage 2 could have felt like a more complete package at launch – a game that has content to complement its excellent weapons and core action. Sadly, that isn't the case and the result is a sequel hasn’t impressed me all that much at all, but it won’t be laid to rest until the roadmap comes to a close for a game many people will have grown bored of.

Ruh-roh. I'll wait for a complete edition down the road somewhere.

Honestly, is anyone really all that surprised at this? Bethesda pulled some pretty shady shit with everyone on the DRM at the last min along with the linked account that is forced in place. Along with Deluxe edition of the game only giving access to the BFG that can not be archived any other way in the game at all.

Bethesda's has reached all new lows with their shady business tactics as of late. I actually refunded the game days before when I found out about the BFG not being in the game. I felt screw Bethesda if they want to treat us like some two bit customers.

So, Ill wait this one out and see it on the deep sale in a year or so.

Some of us see more colors than others.. there's definitely a difference.

I stayed up way to late last night playing, it's really quite fun. I'm too damn old to go to bed at dawn and not suffer the next day.

Yup. Having a blast with it. It's like the best parts of Mad Max and Doom fused together. Denuvo doesn't bother me because the game performs well and the only gun locked behind anything is the BFG 9000 which isn't part of the game's canon anyway so it's not game breaking or important.

I will definitely get this...eventually. Probably January or later though. Let the Denuvo, locked guns, DLCs, etc. all get sorted out, a price drop, a GotY version, etc.
